Leicester City have a difficult task at hand when they welcome Premier League champions Manchester City to the King Power Stadium. The Saturday evening contest will see Pep Guardiola’s side as favourites. However, Man City’s form of late has been less than impressive, while Leicester seemed to have turned a corner by registering back-to-back league victories for the first time this season. However, the challenge on Saturday evening will be compelling for the Foxes and they need to be at the top of their game to get anything out of the match.

Defending Champions Manchester City started the season impressively and have been scoring goals for fun. However, they are going through a difficult patch of late. They have won only one of their last four games and in three of those, they did not score a goal. Only two of those were in the Premier League, while the other two were in the Champions League. They are sitting second in the Premier League with 26 points from 11 games and are two points shy of leaders Arsenal. Meanwhile, Leicester have moved out of the relegation zone and are 17th in the table with 11 points from 12 games. They have won only three times in the league this season and all three victories came in their last five matches.

Possible Lineups

There are a few players who will be absent for both sides ahead of this match. Leicester City will be without the services of Ricardo Pereira and  Ryan Bertrand for a good while, however, they have received a big boost in terms of returning players. Wilfred Ndidi coming back to training will help them massively, while Jonny Evans is also not far from a return. However, they are unlikely to be involved on Saturday.

The biggest concern for Manchester City will be in the form of Erling Haaland’s injury situation. It is not sure when the Norwegian will return for full action. Even if he is involved on Saturday, it is unlikely to be from the start. Meanwhile, Joao Cancelo’s return to fitness will be a big boost for them, however, it is unclear whether he is ready to start. Besides, Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker are absent for them.

Leicester City possible line-up: Ward, Castagne, Faes, Amartey, Justin, Soumare, Tielemans, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Vardy

Manchester City possible line-up: Ederson; Stones, Dias, Akanji, Laporte, Rodri, Silva, De Bruyne, Foden, Grealish, Alvarez
