The machine of Manchester City keeps rolling as Pep Guardiola’s men enter league action to further their quest for a quadruple this season. In the league, they have a massive 13 point lead at the top of the table and are looking increasingly set on bringing home the league trophy come May. After a heavy spending summer, that saw the Arab owners lavishly dish around their cash, City was boasting of a squad full of world-class talent. Pep not only had eleven quality players but also a bench that would be in the starting line-up for most teams around Europe. With such heavy artillery at his disposal, it is no surprise to find City where they are now.
The Citizens have just lost once in the league and one inconsequential Champions League match after locking down on their qualification to the next stage of Europe. Their incredible form has set a record in England for the highest consecutive league wins and City are looking increasingly dominant with each passing day.
They are coming up against a rejuvenated Leicester City side who are performing extremely well under Claude Puel. However, Leicester will be lining up without their controversial star Riyad Mahrez who was on the brink of a deadline day move to Manchester City.
With the busy winter fixture proving to be a tricky business, Guardiola will hope to not lose any more players this week. Having already lost the likes of Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy to long-term injuries, Guardiola will want to see his players protected.
Here is how the Spanish tactician will look to line-up his unstoppable team this weekend.
Ederson who has been in fine form this season can be expected in goal one more time for the Citizens. The heart of the defence will be managed by Nicolas Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte with John Stones out on the bench once again.
The right wing back can be expected to be Kyle Walker with Danilo expected to play on the left.
A midfield trio of Fernandinho at the base with David Silva as one of the attacking centre midfielders and Kevin De Bruyne expected to be the other man in the midfield.
Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva can be expected to flank Sergio Aguero for City with Gabriel Jesus out of action.
