Three things we learned from Leicester đô thị vs Manchester City

2. Counter-attacking Foxes cause problems: Even though Man thành phố dominated the stats (which they vì chưng most weeks) Leicester were a real threat và created some big chances. Brendan Rodgers was missing several key defenders, & maybe that explains why Leicester couldn’t quite build up rom the back like they usually vị as they’ve become a more possession-based side in recent years. Instead, they reverted to playing on the counter and Jamie Vardy caused problems. Perhaps the Foxes will revert lớn a different style, especially against the big boys, this season.

3. Grealish gathering steam: The England international looks lượt thích he’s played for Man city forever. He has slotted in very nicely và he is replicating his Aston Villa form, but now in a Man thành phố shirt. This kind of display is exactly what Pep Guardiola wanted when he signed Grealish.
