Man City v Leicester team news

Man City: City are enduring a raft of injuries, with Ilkay Gundogan, Sergio Afguero, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo and Oleksandr Zinchenko all out.

Eric Garcia may not feature, but Guardiola should start with Gabirel Jesus up top and Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and possibly Phil Foden behind the striker.

Leicester: Brendan Rodgers could welcome back Jonny Evans on Sunday if the defender passes a fitness test, but Ricardo Pereira is out.

Wilfred Ndidi may also be available for the boss, who will likely stick with Jamie Vardy up front and both Youri Tielemans and behind the 33-year-old.

Our prediction: Man City v Leicester

City know all about how Leicester approach games like these, and will be aware of the flash-mob tactics Rodgers can inject in his players.

Therefore, Guardiola’s men will likely keep the pace slow and patient, and look to stifle Leicester into submission.

City have the quality to run away with any game but the Foxes are in fine form and can’t be overlooked here. This could be a close affair.

Our prediction: Man City 2-1 Leicester
