JOB DONE: City celebrate

JOB DONE: City celebrate

City make six changes from the side that drew with Celtic in midweek.

The Blues will be aiming to secure a seventh away win in eight Premier League away games at the King Power Stadium and here's team Pep has selected.

Today's line-up:

Bravo, Zabaleta, Kolarov, Sagna, Stones, Gundogan, Fernando, Silva, De Bruyne, Iheanacho, Navas

Subs: Caballero, Adarabioyo, Clichy, Yaya Toure, Sane, Nolito, Navas, Clichy

LINE-UP: City's starting XI

Changes

Claudio Bravo returns in goal today with Aleks Kolarov also recalled. John Stones, David Silva, Jesus Navas and Kevin De Bruyne all return to the starting XI,

Kelechi leads the line

As expected, Kelechi Iheanacho replaces the suspended Sergio Aguero who begins the first of a four-match domestic ban, Sagna looks set to fill in for the suspended Nicolas Otamendi in central defence and Fernandinho is replaced by Fernando.

Yaya Toure, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane are attacking options on the bench.

What the Media Says

Bravo: We must keep passing from the back

HERE COMES BRAVO: The Chilean makes his way to training

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo believes City must continue to play passing football if they are to return to winning ways.

City are fourth in the Premier League after last week’s loss to Chelsea and they travel to Premier League champions Leicester City this afternoon hoping to seal another victory on the road.
