Premier League winner looking forward to Manchester City clash

Leicester City winger Marc Albrighton thinks his team will play Manchester City tomorrow.

It is the first encounter since Leicester won the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium last month thanks to a late Kelechi Iheanacho penalty.

As domestic football resumes following the international break, the two have the identical amount of points, with Man City just ahead of the Foxes because to their far better goal difference.

Albrighton, despite recognising the task offered by the reigning Premier League winners, acknowledges that Brendan Rodgers' team are unfazed after putting one over on them already this season.

"We all know it’s going to be a tough game," he told LCFC TV. "Man City are a great side."

"They’ve got a great squad, and they’ve continued to add to that in the summer. It’s going to be very difficult, but it’s one we’re looking forward to.

"It’s at home, with the fans, and it’s one we can really take to Man City and hopefully come out with the right result. The Community Shield win is obviously the most recent (encounter).

"There might be a few changes to the sides, but I think to beat a team and get one over on them definitely breeds confidence through the group, but also it could work the other way. They might want to get some revenge because that was a trophy like any other that they would have wanted to win."
