Pesky As Ever
Time will tell if City have sorted their defensive issues out properly with Ake coming in. But the absence of Laporte remains a cause for hope for opposing strikers.
In a similar scenario to the game at Tottenham, the heavy underdogs have a dangerous frontman in their ranks who gets undervalued by the bookies on account of the match expectations.
Yes Manchester City should win their opening home match, and they have a great record against Leicester, but that hasn’t stopped Jamie Vardy striking 5 times in 8 appearances against Pep’s boys.
The reigning Golden Boot winner opened his account with 2 penalties against West Brom and the way the handball rule is working this season - 21/10 with PaddyPower on Vardy scoring anytime is a snip!
