Ricardo Pereira vs. Newcastle United
Portugal international Ricardo Pereira scored the first goal in City's 5-0 victory over the Magpies.
No Leicester City player has seen more of the ball than Ricardo Pereira, who has touched the ball on a remarkable 1,144 occasions in 12 matches so far this season.
Only Liverpool full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold (1,236) and Andrew Robertson (1,162) have had ownership of the ball more often, while Virgil van Dijk (1,027) has made less touches.
The Portuguese's ability to control the ball and migrate it forwards has been a prominent feature this term and was on show in particular for his goal in the 5-0 win over Newcastle United in September.

Ricardo Pereira vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Foxes right-back Ricardo Pereira provided the equaliser in our 2-1 victory over Spurs in the Premier League.
From sun-drenched August to sodden November, Ricardo Pereira has played in every single minute of his second Premier League campaign at Leicester City.
Ricardo is one of 38 players across the entire division to achieve that feat - and joins a small club of five to do so within City's ranks.
Jamie Vardy, Çağlar Söyüncü, Ben Chilwell and Jonny Evans are the other Foxes not to miss a minute of the 2019/20, indicating their own importance to Leicester's strategy.

While Ricardo Pereira's attacking efforts are regularly acknowledged, the 26-year-old is also right at the very top of the charts recognising the Premier League's top tacklers.
Trailing only Foxes team-mate Wilfred Ndidi (59), a regular presence at the top of these lists, Ricardo has made 54 tackles in 2019/20, level with Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Compatriot João Moutinho (Wolverhampton Wanderers) and Spaniard Oriol Romeu (Southampton) complete the Premier League's top five on 43 and 41 respectively.
