Manchester City vs Leicester City: 2021 Community Shield Prediction

For Leicester, this will not be a walk in the park as they suffered a huge blow after Wesley Fofana's horrific injury during the match against Villarreal. The defense will have a huge task in front of them when they face Man city's resolute attack. 

Manchester City has world-class players at the moment and a great depth, so losing a player will be the least of their concerns.
