Manchester City are in the midst of an injury crisis with manager Pep Guardiola confirming he may only have 13 fit senior players for tomorrow’s game against Leicester.
Gabriel Jesus is expected to miss the next few weeks with a muscular problem. The Brazilian international has been added to the injury list which currently includes six other players.
Bernardo Silva (thigh), Joao Cancelo (foot), Oleksandr Zinchenko (muscular) and Sergio Aguero (knee) are all unavailable. Aymeric Laporte does have a slight chance of being named in the matchday squad if he can prove his fitness.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face Leicester:
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Ake, Mendy, De Bruyne, Rodri, Foden, Mahrez, Sterling, Torres
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers could welcome back Jonny Evans from a thigh injury, but Demarai Gray remains a doubt due to illness. Wilfried Ndidi (groin), Ricardo Pereira (knee) and Filip Benkovic (hip) are still sidelined.
Leicester’s Predicted XI:
Schmeichel, Castagne, Soyuncu, Evans, Justin, Tielemans, Mendy, Praet, Perez, Vardy, Barnes
The bookmakers have made City the favourites with Unibet pricing them at 8/25 for the win. A draw is 5/1 with Betfair while a Leicester victory is 9/1 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 2-1 to Manchester City
