£100m When Jack Grealish came on for his Man City debut on 64 minutes, it was Leicester's substitute Iheanacho who made the difference, forcing Nathan Ake into a mistake to win the penalty and then emphatically firing home against his former side in front of the Leicester fans, 84 days after their FA Cup triumph at the same venue.
Leicester had been impressive throughout, with Harvey Barnes starring on his comeback from a knee injury that had kept him out since February, and the winger was involved when Jamie Vardy's shot was kicked onto the post by Zack Steffen on the stroke of half-time.
Man City had their moments as well, with Riyad Mahrez spurning several good chances to score against his former club, including a great counter-attack opportunity in the second half, but despite Grealish's cameo, in which he showed glimpses of his exciting dribbling ability, the Premier League champions were defeated.
WHAT IS NEXT?
Leicester's Premier League season kicks off on Saturday at 3 p.m. at home against Wolves. Manchester City begin their Premier League title defense against Tottenham next Sunday, live on Sky Sports from 3.30pm; kickoff is at 4.30pm.
