The Foxes come into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City, a first defeat in three matches.

David Silva opened the scoring for Guardiola’s side (29), with Sterling appearing to play the ball in an offside position.

Gabriel de Jesus (36) made it 2-0 from the penalty spot, after a clumsy foul on Leroy Sane from Benalouane.

Shinji Okazaki halved the deficit (42), with a thunderous volley that easily beat Willy Caballero.

Leicester thought they had stolen a point when Riyad Mahrez converted a 76th-minute penalty.

But he was adjudged to have kicked the ball twice and the goal was disallowed, leaving City with a fortuitous win.

Honeymoon Period Over

Defeats against Arsenal and Manchester City have been their only blemishes in their last six matches.
