Confirmed: Leicester v Manchester City line-ups: Strong teams selected

Leicester City

Leicester City host Manchester City this evening.

Leicester City host Manchester City in a huge Premier League game.

The Foxes are the division's surprise package, coming into this round of fixtures at the top of the table.

Arsenal's win over Bournemouth has seen them climb above them, but Leicester can reclaim top spot with a victory here.

Doing so will be easier said than done against a Manchester City side capable of blowing teams away.

Leicester lost their last game 1-0 to Liverpool, and will be keen to avoid a second straight loss.

This is their first home game since their win over Chelsea, and they can take heart from City's struggles on their travels, looking poor in the loss to Arsenal last week.

A win for City would mean Arsenal finish the year top of the table, and a draw would see the Foxes level with the Gunners on points, but second on goal difference.
