Manchester City travel to Leicester City on Saturday looking to maintain their record-breaking start to the Premier League season.

Pep Guardiola's pace-setters have dropped just two points after 11 games, boasting 31 points and a plus-31 goal difference.

Leicester, meanwhile, appear to have somewhat steadied the ship, with new manager Claude Puel gaining four points from his opening two games, but face a daunting task at home on Saturday.

Start time

Leicester City host Manchester City at King Power Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 3pm on Saturday, November 18.

Team news

Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph withdrew from the England squad with back and calf complaints respectively.

Bernard Silva could come in on the right flank, while Ilkay Gundogan will be hoping for a start after returning for Germany during the international break.

Leicester City are sweating on the fitness of Vicente Iborra (ankle) and Ben Chilwell (knee) ahead of the visit of City.

Claude Puel could revert back to a 4-4-1-1, with Andy King and Shinji Okazaki coming in as Riyad Mahrez moves back to the wing.

Predicted line-ups

Leicester City starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, Ndidi, King, Gray; Okazaki; Vardy

Manchester City starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Silva, Aguero, Sane
