Leicester City vs Manchester City

Date: 18/11/17

K.O: 15:00pm

Venue: King Power Stadium

Two of the Premier League’s in-form teams meet at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, as runaway leaders Man City travel to resurgent Leicester.

The Foxes welcome back Ben Chilwell from injury, while Vicente Iborra has overcome the injury which forced him off in the draw at Stoke.

They remain without Robert Huth and Matty James, but otherwise are at full strength. Claude Puel must decide how to contain the rampant visitors, with Demarai Gray, Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez all likely to play a part as they look to play on the counter.

Free-scoring City have been handed a boost by Sergio Aguero declaring himself available for selection, after fainting at half time of Argentina’s 4-2 loss to Nigeria earlier in the week.

Pep Guardiola may choose not to risk him anyway, in which case Gabriel Jesus will play alone in attack.

At the back, City are without Nicolas Otamendi through suspension and are 50:50 with Fabian Delph, having missed both England games with a calf injury.

Guardiola must decide between the returning Vincent Komapny and Eliaquim Mangala to fill Otamendi’s void, while Danilo will come in at left back if Delph fails to be fit in time.

Prediction: Leicester City 1 Manchester City 2
