I can see City really running riot here, I don't know why.

Leicester have had two great fixtures to kick off the season so they haven't really had a test yet for me.

City looked ominously good at Wolves Monday for their first game, sharp and hungry. With Leicester losing Ndidi too, it feels like they are playing City at the wrong time.

You're not wrong. Apart from the win in 2016, we have a poor record there and will probably lose by about 3+.

We'll be well beaten here. No Ndidi is gutting and enough to derail things pretty early doors. I think Mendy's done OK in the first two games but can't help but think people are getting a little carried away.

At least Evans is back but I think this'll be pretty ugly unfortunately. We have started well but we have played upper Championship level opposition so far in West Brom, and a Burnley team missing about 6 first choice players. Anything less than 6 points would've been disappointing.

Would be delighted if we got anything from this.

Don’t think Leicester fans should be crying this in, wolves caaused Manchester City a lot of problems. You can get at them.

Wolves have a clue how to set up against top teams. We're as bad as anyone against them under Rodgers. Now for Rodgers to prove me wrong.

I think Man City will find goals and many position in the first half. Leicester could make a bad start to the game. Leicester may not be able to handle the pressure.

I shit you not, I've just heard this is the team.

Schmeichel

Amartey - Evans - Soyuncu

Castagne ------- Mendy ------- Justin

Tielemans - Praet

Barnes - Vardy

Terrible set up as expected. Set up to contain and concede in the 4th minute. Totally predictable.

This is absolutely shocking Stan, why does he do this? We've got to change something here, there's just no threat at all from us.

Make a sub now. Reason with whoever you sub but seriously this is absolutely pathetic. It's like a League Two side.

Always far too much respect shown. What exactly was the point in changing shape from last 2 games?

Rodgers' biggest problem. Was exactly the same away to these last year.

Already early signs of both Liverpool and City just walking away from the rest

If there is a penalty beyond the 90' I'm dropping the premier league this season.  Would rather watch La Liga or Serie A

We're starting to catch them out here. Far better.

We got better in that to be honest as that went on. I think we're very fortunate to be level but they haven't exactly peppered our goal themselves.

Need to realise their defence can be susceptible on the break. Having said that, getting the ball quick up the pitch is something we struggle to do because of their press. I think we just need to believe in ourselves a bit more. Believe we have the ability to catch them out.

That's exactly what I've been calling for. I've come out of that half actually quite encouraged. Just don't lose this to fear, they look very susceptible.

Yeah exactly. Get at them with an extra body. Make them shit themselves ffs. Don't think Amartey needs to be on. Get Perez on and go 3 up top. Get the ball to Vardy and Barnes as much as possible.

We've had two yellows in five minutes and neither should've been.
