Leicester vs Man City prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?

Manchester City will assess David Silva ahead of their trip to Leicester after the midfielder limped off with an injury against West Ham in midweek.

Raheem Sterling is ruled out with a hamstring issue and Leroy Sane is yet to return after tearing his ACL in August, but Oleksandr Zinchenko is back from suspension.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed key-man Wilfred Ndidi will miss out for the Foxes, while Nampalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey remain long-term absentees.

Team news

David Silva is a doubt for the visitors after picking up a knock in midweek but Raheem Sterling will definitely miss out. Oleksandr Zinchenko is back from suspension.

Wilfred Ndidi will not be risked by Leicester, who are also without Nampalys Mendy, Daniel Amartey and the suspended Hamza Choudhury. Ryan Bennett could make his Foxes debut if Brendan Rodgers opts for a back three.

Predicted line-ups

Leicester: Schmeichel, Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Praet, Tielemans, Maddison. Perez, Barnes, Vardy

Man City: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Jesus

Prediction

Neither side will be at their best here. Leicester’s defensive midfielders are all sidelined, meaning Rodgers will have to play a very attacking trio or alternate to a back three and hand loanee Ryan Bennett a baptism of fire. City will have an eye on their tie with Real Madrid in the Champions League and will likely rotate as a result. A draw between a slightly out-of-form Leicester and distracted City seems a likely result.
