Manchester City vs Leicester: team news and predicted line-ups

Man City will look to regain their position at the top of the Premier League table as they host Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night.

The pressure will be on Pep Guardiola’s men after Liverpool beat Newcastle on Saturday to put the Reds two points ahead but with an extra game played.

All things considered, City’s destiny stays in their very own hands and a success against Leicester would reestablish their important lead over their title rivals going into the most recent day of the period on Sunday.

City go into the game having won their last 12 consecutive league matches and will be confident of continuing that series of wins against ninth-put Leicester.

The Citizens will, however, be wary of the danger posed by The Foxes, who won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in December and managed to beat Arsenal 3-0 in their last showing.

A success for mentor Brendan Rogers, who recognized the specific danger of striker Jamie Vardy in the pre-coordinate question and answer session, would see his side move up to eighth and still in the running for Europa League qualification.

Rogers, a former Liverpool manager, can do his old club a major favour by at least earning a point at the Etihad, where the Foxes lost 5-1 in their last visit back in February. Their last away triumph at the Etihad came in February 2016, where they beat City 3-1 and proceeded to win the Premier League title.
