CONFIRMED: Leicester City and Manchester City line-ups

Leicester City

Here is how Leicester City and Manchester City will line up for their Premier League match this weekend:

Leicester starting XI: Hamer, Simpson, Wasilewski, Morgan, Konchesky, Cambiasso, King, Drinkwater, Mahrez, Schlupp, Vardy

Leicester subs: Smith, Hammond, James, Powell, Moore, Ulloa, Knockaert

Manchester City starting XI: Hart, Sagna, Mangala, Kompany, Clichy, Toure, Fernando, Nasri, Lampard, Silva, Dzeko

Manchester City subs: Caballero, Demichelis, Kolarov, Milner, Fernandinho, Navas, Pozo

Leicester City host Manchester City this afternoon with memories of the last time a Manchester club came to town still in every Foxes’ fan’s mind.

Leicester crushed United 5-3 earlier this season but since then Nigel Pearson’s side has struggled and they are currently bottom of the table with just 10 points from 15 games.

In contrast, reigning champions City are now just three points behind league leaders Chelsea and will have one eye on overtaking them this side of Christmas.

City will be on a high after their Champions League exploits and it could be a tough day for Leicester if Manuel Pellegrini’s side play to their full potential.
