City face Leicester tomorrow, just three days after beating West Ham 2-0 at the Etihad.

Opinion

Squawka: Leicester v City predictions, team news and possible XIs

Steve Jennings writes: “Man City are bound to have most of the ball against Leicester, but that will only happen if Rodri is on song – and in fairness, he rarely isn’t.

“The Spaniard opened the scoring against West Ham on Wednesday, proving he is more than just the metronome in Guardiola’s machine.

“But, of course, his distribution from deep areas is his most important asset. Rodri will have to be cautious of the Leicester press if Man City are to gain control.

“Key stat: Only Virgil van Dijk (1898) has made more successful passes than Rodri in the Premier League this season (1675).”

Sports Mole: Preview – Leicester v City

Matt Law writes: Leicester will be without the services of Hamza Choudhury following the midfielder's red card against Wolves, while Nampalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey are still on the treatment table.

Key midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will also again miss out with the knee issue that has ruled him out of Leicester's last two Premier League matches with Chelsea and Wolves.

Leicester will be without the services of Hamza Choudhury following the midfielder's red card against Wolves, while Nampalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey are still on the treatment table.

Key midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will also again miss out with the knee issue that has ruled him out of Leicester's last two Premier League matches with Chelsea and Wolves.

Dennis Praet could therefore come into the team in central midfield, but it is otherwise expected to be the same XI that started last time out with James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy all in the side.

As for Man City, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and David Silva are all unavailable, but Oleksandr Zinchenko could return having served a one-game domestic suspension.

The fact that the English champions will take on Madrid next week means that Guardiola is expected to shuffle his pack for this match, with Joao Cancelo and Riyad Mahrez both expected to feature.

Fernandinho could also return in central defence with Aymeric Laporte, who has only just returned from a long-term knee injury, likely to be rested ahead of the trip to the Bernabeu.

Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero should both keep their spots in the final third, while Guardiola is also expected to resist the temptation to rest De Bruyne.

Leicester possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Perez, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Man City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Cancelo, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; Gundogan, De Bruyne, Rodri; Mahrez, Aguero, Bernardo

View from the opposition

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: "Man City are a great team but they have to feel your aggression and when you get the ball you have to have quality.

"We were too passive [in the game at the Etihad in December]. That was pretty clear.

"We got a great start but we didn't press the game well enough."
