Predicted Manchester City and Leicester City line-ups

Manchester City face off against Leicester City later this week.

To be played on Wednesday 4th March 2015 at 19:45. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Odds: Man City 1/5, Draw 5/1, Leicester 10/1

Manchester City welcome Leicester City to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening, with the reigning Premier League champions still likely to be smarting from their 2-1 defeat at Anfield last time out.

That result dented City’s hopes of retaining the title, and league leaders Chelsea will be happy their participation in the League Cup final did not see the gap closed to just two points.

That said there is still a lot of football to be played and City will want to get back to winning ways against the Foxes.

Leicester are currently bottom of the table having picked up just 18 points all season.

They do have a game-in-hand over the two sides directly above them but it is going to take an almighty effort to prevent relegation after just a single season back in the top tier.

That said, Leicester caused City plenty of problems in the reverse fixture, when a Frank Lampard strike was all that separated the two sides after 90 minutes.

In early team news, City have a completely clean bill of health while Leicester are without goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel due to a foot injury.
