Leicester City v Manchester City: Injuries
Injuries could play a massive factor in deciding the fate of Brendan Rodgers’ side: both positively and negatively. Regarding the King Power side, almost the entire squad is available, with no notable suspensions.
There are exclusions. Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira are definitely out, with both Wilfred Ndidi and Jonny Evans possible doubts. They are to be assessed, but do not expect both back at the same time. However, this may be the fixture Rodgers decides he needs them both fit for.
