Third-placed Leicester City lock horns with Manchester City in this important Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium. While Man City occupy the first position in the table with 71 points, Leicester City are placed third with 56 points and are just 1 point behind second-placed Manchester United. A win would pip them past United, temporarily.
There are no injury news even though a lot of City players went for their international matches. Silva, Gundogan and Sterling are key players for the visitors.
However, James Justin, Harvey Burns and James Maddison are ruled out of the game due to respective injuries.
Manchester City have been a dominating force in the Premier League and have already notched up 22 wins in 30 games. They have a chance of winning the quadruple this season and would be eager to clinch it. They are coming on the back off a 2-0 victory against Everton in the FA Cup quarter finals and would be high on confidence. Kevin De Bruyne and IIkay Gundogan netted goals and will be in the starting 11.
The Foxes are also coming on the back off a 3-1 victory against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter finals. Kelechi will be a marquee player coming into this game and indeed his partnership with Jamie Vardy has made Leicester a force to reckon with. He also has a hattrick against Sheffield United. Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi’s ability to stop a counter-attack will be beneficial for Leicester as Manchester City are well-known for their counter-attacks.
