Leicester City play Manchester City at King Power Stadium on Saturday as the Premier League returns. Here is the Citizens injury news and their expected line-up.

Pep Guardiola is spoiled for choice when his team take on the Foxes this weekend. Evening Standard reports that Man City have zero injury concerns to first team players at present. In addition to having absolutely no personnel unavailable due to suspension.

The publication further suggests that the Spaniard could make wholesale changes to his starting line-up, with an important Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund upcoming.

Yet Foxes of Leicester envisions a very strong team beginning for the Sky Blues; especially when you consider the fact that Brendan Rodgers‘ men defeated MCFC 5-2 at Etihad Stadium earlier in the season. Therefore, this is FoL’s expected Man City XI:

Ederson; Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo; Rodrigo; Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan; Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez; Sergio Aguero.

Leicester City player’s honesty

Ever wondered why Leicester winger Marc Albrighton was never called-up to the senior England squad? Me too. And thankfully the Birmingham-born Fox has explained to talkSPORT, as per Leicestershire Live, exactly why he believes his chance never came for his country. That is apart from a 2009-2011 stint with the Three Lions’ Under-20 and U21 sides.

As Albrighton realistically tells it, he missed the opportunity to get the full international nod as a youngster, when most stars are picked out as special. Adding that he possibly “had a shout” when LCFC won the EPL title in 2016. However, he thinks he actually played better football during the 2016/17 campaign the following year. Finally, the wingman admits his lack of goalscoring statistics probably also had an impact because of an abundance of great wingers in his era.
