Manchester City will entertain Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium this Saturday evening as they try to secure a good result at home in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola‘s men managed to earn a convincing 3-0 win over Bayern Munich in midweek which will give them a lot of confidence for this clash.

Pep Guardiola will set his side up in a 3-2-2-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of tweaks to his starting XI for this game. Both Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez will play from the start while Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva drop to the bench.

Ederson will function in between the sticks for Man City after securing a clean sheet versus the Bavarian giants in midweek. Guardiola will opt for a back three of Manuel Akanji, Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.

Aymeric Laporte will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.

Rodri and John Stones will hope to anchor the midfield with conviction for Man City. The dynamic duo of Ilkay Gundogan and Julian Alvarez will operate just ahead of them as the free-flowing, attacking midfielders. Both of them will be given the license to get forward and cause problems inside the Leicester penalty box.

Kevin de Bruyne and Kalvin Phillips will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the second half if Guardiola decides to call upon their services.


Jack Grealish is enjoying his best form for Man City right now. He will once again hope to be a potent threat on the left wing while Riyad Mahrez looks to weave his magic from the right.

Erling Haaland will spearhead Man City’s attack on his own up top. He managed to get his name on the scoresheet versus Bayern which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this game.

Bernardo Silva will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages of the game if needed.
