Leicester vs Man City match preview
Current table-toppers Arsenal don’t play until Sunday, so Manchester City could find themselves top of the table on Saturday with a win over Leicester.
Pep’s side will need to show more intent than they did against Dortmund in midweek when, with qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League already secured, they played out a 0-0 bore-draw.
Last time they drew 0-0 in Europe, they followed it up with a defeat at Anfield.
City will need to play more like they did in their 3-1 win over Brighton last weekend to overcome a resurgent Leicester side.
Brendan Rodgers is no longer under quite so much intense pressure as he was going into the last Leicester match televised live on BT Sport, when they faced Crystal Palace.
Since that 0-0 draw, the Foxes have won two on the bounce, beating Leeds 2-0 and Wolves 4-0 at the weekend.
They find themselves outside the relegation zone prior to the visit of City, but could drop back into it if they lose on Saturday and other results go against them.
Leicester vs Man City predicted lineups
Leicester: (4-1-4-1) Ward; Castagne, Amartey, Faes, Justin, Soumare, Maddison, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Daka.
Man City: (4-3-3) Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Laporte, Gomez, De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva, Foden, Haaland, Grealish.
Leicester could welcome back Wilfred Ndidi to the side on Saturday. The Nigerian international has been out for most of the month with a hamstring injury but has been training this week and should at least be involved in the squad after not being risked against Wolves.
Defender Jonny Evans is also back training and could play after being out with a calf injury.
Superstar striker Erling Haaland was subbed off on his return to Dortmund in midweek. The Norwegian suffered a knock on his foot after a tackle from former teammate Mats Hummels.
After the match Guardiola commented on Haaland: “Three things. I saw him so tired. Second one there was a bit of influence (fever) in his body. And the third he had a knock in his foot. That is why he was unable to play in the second-half.”
Joao Cancelo has also been suffering with tiredness and illness, so could miss the trip to Leicester, while Kyle Walker remains out while he recovers from groin surgery.
