Pep Guardiola faces a striking dilemma ahead of Manchester City’s clash against Leicester City.
It has been reported that Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus could be facing a number of weeks on the sidelines. Sergio Aguero is still expected to be out of the side with a knee injury.
The Citizens’ defeat of Bournemouth saw 17-year-old Liam Delap make his senior debut and score. Therefore, questions will be raised as to whether the youngster should start against the Foxes.

Alternative options could mean fielding Raheem Sterling centrally with the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Bernando Silva or new signing Ferran Torres deployed in the wide areas.
De Bruyne scare
It has been reported that even after a head-injury scare against Bournemouth, Kevin De Bruyne will be fit to face Leicester City.
The Belgian international was on the end of a nasty head collision which saw the 29-year-old on the turf for several minutes.
After the game, Pep Guardiola was asked on the well-being of his star man.
The Spaniard said, “He had a little bit distortion. In general, yeah, feels good.”

Guardiola will be keen to continue a strong, yet delayed, start to the league season. The tricky opening day 2-1 away win at Wolves showed Pep’s side will be once again challenging Liverpool for the title.
