Predicted Leicester City XI to face Manchester City in the Premier League

Leicester City upset the odds and put up a wonderful performance last week to claim all three points with a 1-0 victory over Chelsea and the Foxes will be up against it once again when they play host to Manchester City on Wednesday.

Claude Puel’s men climbed up to 9th in the Premier League standings with that surprise win and the Foxes will need to pull the rabbit out of the hat once again to keep the Citizens at bay.

Manchester City suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at the hands of  Crystal Palace last week and Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking to get back to winning ways.

Team News

Claude Puel doesn’t have too many injuries to contend with for the mid-week game. Daniel Amartey continues to remain on the treatment table to nurse his injured ankle while Matthew James is a long-term absentee for the Foxes.

Solid at the back and lively on the attack, the youngster has been a standout performer for the Foxes this season.
