Leicester City vs Manchester City: Match Preview:

A Leicester City side regaining their swagger host Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.

Brendan Rodgers has steered the Foxes to ten points from a possible 15 in October, hauling his team out of the relegation zone. Leicester's run of form culminated in a 4-0 victory against Wolves last weekend which the manager described as "very, very good".

By their own lofty standards, Pep Guardiola's side is enduring a sticky patch after recording one win from their previous four matches.

However, the Sky Blues have secured top spot in their Champions League group and can also reach the summit of the Premier League with a win on Saturday.

Team News:

Leicester City:

Wilfred Ndidi has returned to training ahead of Manchester City's visit but may not be tossed straight back into the XI considering an overly swift reintegration aggravated his hamstring injury in the first place.

Rodgers was also optimistic about Jonny Evans' availability but both fullbacks Ryan Bertrand (knee) and Ricardo Pereira (Achilles) remain long-term absentees.

Manchester City:

Erling Haaland and Joao Cancelo were removed at half-time of City's goalless stalemate against Borussia Dortmund. Guardiola later revealed that both had been suffering from a fever. Haaland was also "so tired" and carrying "a knock on his foot" according to the Catalan coach.

Although the damage to Haaland's foot isn't thought to be serious, Guardiola may line up without the Norwegian in the Premier League for the first time this season.

Kalvin Phillips (shoulder) and Kyle Walker (groin) are continuing their recoveries in a bid to be available for England before next month's World Cup.

Leicester City vs Manchester City: Head to Head:

Manchester City have an impressive record against Leicester City and have won 64 out of the 125 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Leicester City's 32 victories.

Leicester City have lost nine of their last 11 Premier League matches against Manchester City and have suffered three defeats in a row against the Cityzens.

Manchester City have won their last three away games against Leicester City without conceding a single goal - their previous such defeat came by a 2-1 margin in 2018.
