So far, so, erm, average? You could be forgiven for thinking so. But here are some more which are a little more City specific…

Leicester have taken more points than any other side when winning at half time this season.

Matches involving City have rarely been dull in the final moments. The Foxes have conceded a worrying nine in the last five minutes of matches, but have scored seven of their own during that time frame.

Similarly, Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side have conceded eight between 10-15 minutes.

When keeping a clean sheet the Foxes have claimed eight wins from nine – the second best figure of its kind in the Championship.

But when failing to score, City have struggled massively, taking just a point from those 10 occasions.
