1NEWS – The continuation of the fourth matchday of the English Premier League is presented at the King Power Stadium between Leicester City and Manchester City. Where this match is also a rematch of the Community Shield final.
In that match, Manchester City managed to beat Brendan Rodgers’ troops at home. Bernardo Silva’s single goal successfully ensured the team nicknamed The Citizens took full points and took revenge.
Manchester City went down in full force by still entrusting the position of striker to Ferran Torres. While both Gabriel Jesus and the club’s latest signing, Jack Grealish were paired with him.
Meanwhile, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden who have just recovered from their injuries are not played at all by Pep Guardiola. But both are reported to have returned to training with the first team. Instead, Pep Guardiola fielded Ilkay Gundogan and the team’s winning hero, Bernardo Silva in midfield.
In the defense sector, Manchester City is now holding on to the quality of Aymeric Laporte who last season dimmed. However, from the three matches that have been lived, Pep Guardiola always lowers him.
Meanwhile, in terms of the home team, Brendan Rodgers has not given Patson Daka a chance at all. Where the Zambian striker was just brought in at a fairly expensive cost, 30 million Euros. The Foxes still rely heavily on the quality of their veteran striker, Jamie Vardy.
Leicester City nor did he play his second most expensive signing after Patson Daka. Where the record is owned by Boubakary Soumare, a player who was bought from French club LOSC Lille with a dowry of 20 million Euros. Other than that, all the players that Brendan Rodgers has fielded are the core players.
