Riyad Mahrez, who has been on strike since his deadline day move to the Etihad collapsed, returns and is on the bench.
"Leicester City were always aware of my whereabouts and had knowledge of my thinking either directly or via my advisers", Mahrez said in a statement published by Sky Sports and the Leicester Mercury newspaper.
His third goal came via a Schmeichel gift, after the Denmark global had passed the ball straight to him and the Argentinian delightfully chipped into the net.
"We love to play football but we've been playing in four competitions, every three or four days, over the past two to three months".
Despite bossing the game, it was Leicester who drew level in the 23rd minute as Vardy capitalised on a mistake in the City defence to shoot past Ederson.
City just needed to start applying the final touches and did so early in the second half, ruthlessly exposing Foxes boss Claude Puel's decision to switch from a back three to back four. "He loves his team-mates, and that's important".
Puel has been pleased with his squad's professional attitude in training amid the ongoing saga with Mahrez. "It is a good feeling, the players have kept their focus about the next games".
"Kevin is an fantastic player so it's good that he's playing with us", Aguero told Sky Sports.
"My squad has a fantastic attitude, they have strength together".
Vardy had previously scored against Manchester City this season in the Carabao Cup, but that did not count toward that specific feat.
"It is a good challenge. We have no pressure against this team, they are the favourites", said the Frenchman.
And yet there is growing appreciation of player welfare in football. Of course it is hard against this team.
Sterling's glaring miss at Burnley last week was highlighted as the game-changer as the Clarets fought back to snatch a point.
West Ham United climbed five points above the relegation zone and ended a run of three league games without victory with a 2-0 win over Watford thanks to goals from Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic.
He had two possible penalty shouts in either half while he nearly came close to scoring a second in the 41st minute.
"Now, away, we can show our progress against this team".
