Fixture: Leicester City vs Manchester City
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 17:30 (UK time)
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has named the starting eleven and substitutes for his side’s Premier League clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium later this evening.
Guardiola goes with four in defence with Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta, Aleksandar Kolarov and John Stones marshalling the rearguard. With Fernadinho suspended, Fernando returns to the team to partner Ilkay Gundogan in midfield.
Kelechi Iheanacho will lead the attack in the absence of Sergio Aguero, with Jesus Navas, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva in support. The Manchester City boss has the attacking options of using Raheem Sterling, Nolito and Leroy Sane from the substitutes’ bench.
Following their defeat against Chelsea at home last weekend, Guardiola is aware that his team cannot afford to lose too much ground against their title rivals and need a win over the Foxes today.
