Confirmed Lineups (updated):

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Zinchenko; Foden, Gundogan, D.Silva; Sterling, Aguero, Bernardo Silva.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Maguire, Chilwell; Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Choudhury, Maddison; Vardy.



Team News:

  • Kevin De Bruyne is ruled out of this match through injury. Fernandinho is a major doubt.
  • Zinchenko is expected to start at left-back ahead of Mendy.
  • Matty James and Daniel Amartey are ruled out for Leicester City.
  • Leicester City may go in for a 3-man defensive midfield with Ndidi, Tielemans and Choudhury against Manchester City.
  • Pep Guardiola has lost two Premier League games against Leicester City the as Manchester City boss – only against Chelsea (three) has Pep lost more in the competition.



My Verdict:

  • This is a must-win match for Manchester City. They will opt for an all-out attacking strategy against Leicester City.
  • Manchester City have won three of their last four Premier League meetings with Leicester City but they did lose the reverse fixture 2-1 in December.
  • I have chosen Aguero as the captain because he has scored 15 Premier League home goals for City this season. He has contributed a goal or an assist EVERY single time he has started a home game for City this season.
  • Leicester City, and especially Jamie Vardy, perform really well against Top 6 sides who hold a high line. Gives them space to exploit behind the defensive line. Leicester City will be dangerous opponents for City.
  • Leicester City have a good chance of getting on the scoresheet.
  • My Prediction: Manchester City 3-1 Leicester City.
