A clash of the Belgians is the opener of the 14th match day in the Premier League. This afternoon Manchester City (with Kevin De Bruyne, without Erling Haaland) will visit Leicester City, where Wout Faes, Timothy Castagne and Youri Tielemans are in the base. With a win, Manchester City jumps (for now) over Arsenal to the top position in England.

  1. halftime, 2 pm 17. The ninth corner just before half time also yields nothing. So a logical score at halftime. .
  2. first half, minute 47 match over
  3. first half, minute 46. Eighth corner for City, eighth time nothing. Grealish may cross this time, Ward picks in his small rectangle. .
  4. first half, minute 44. We seem to be heading for a 0-0 at halftime, we haven’t seen any really big opportunities yet.  .
  5. first half, minute 41. De Bruyne already provokes the seventh corner for City and kicks it himself, but too high to cause any danger.  .
  6. first half, minute 37. Barnes cuts in from the left and puts in for a shot. A long way over Ederson’s cage.  .
  7. Grealish hit the ground in the penalty area. The VAR has to take a look at it, but rightly decides not to award a penalty to City. Grealish lies down too easily and seeks contact himself. . first half, minute 36.
  8. first half, minute 32. Barnes dribbles. Leicester can come out quickly, but Barnes dribbles on the left. He only had eyes for the ball and not for his teammates.  .
  9. first half, minute 30. The English trio Maddison, Barnes and Vardy apparently do not speak the same language in the front. A potentially dangerous counter-stroke ends in a misunderstanding. .
  10. first half, minute 28. De Bruyne again. His long shot is too central to get Ward in trouble.  .
  11. Ederson saves in the short corner. Via Faes and Tielemans the ball reaches Vardy, who sends Barnes away. He lashes out from a sharp angle, Ederson pushes into a corner.  . first half, minute 25.
  12. first half, minute 23. De Bruyne can continue in the 16 of Leicester, Soyuncu blocks him well. These are the Turkish defender’s first minutes in the Premier League this season, by the way. .
  13. first half, minute 21. Leicester has not yet reached the other side. It is camped in its own half.  .
  14. first half, minute 17. A high ball is returned by De Bruyne to Bernardo Silva, Ward has one foot still near the shot. .
  15. Offside. Alvarez is sent deep and decides from a sharp angle on Ward. Offside flags are also flagged.  . first half, minute 16.
  16. first half, minute 15. De Bruyne can moor himself now, but shoots way past.  .
  17. Ward’s first real save. After a short corner kick, De Bruyne paints the ball on Rodrigo’s head, now Ward has to make a slightly more difficult save. He can still push the ball into a corner.  . first half, minute 13.
  18. first half, minute 12. 88 percent possession of the ball for Manchester City in the first ten minutes of this game. They don’t do much with it alone yet.  .
  19. first half, minute 10. Gundogan can head a first time, but it’s a pickball for Ward.  .
  20. first half, minute 9. City in possession. Without really creating opportunities for the time being, City demands – of course – possession of the ball, Leicester has to back up. It’s all still a bit of testing. .
