City building momentum

City beat both Norwich City and Arsenal 5-0 before the international break, and Saturday's result helped them keep up with both Manchester United and Chelsea, who are one point in front of them at present.

Silva strikes

Silva scored the only goal of the game at the King Power Stadium to ensure the three points went to Pep Guardiola's men in what was the first game of a busy month.

City tackle RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday, while they also have to face Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Cup. There are also games against Chelsea and PSG on the horizon, and the City midfielder says his team will take everything in their stride.

He told the club's official website: "This month is going to be crazy for us; everyone is ready.

"There are a lot of different competitions to play, tough games. When you are in this form it is easier to keep going because players have a lot of confidence.

"We have to keep up the momentum, winning and winning and winning. We have a lot of players hungry to play minutes.

"It was a really important win, especially because we know how difficult it is to play against Leicester. We know how good they are because we played them in the Community Shield."
