Date- Saturday, December 21 | Kick-Off- 11:00 PM (IST) | Venue- Etihad Stadium
Sergio Aguero recently returned to training but might not start ahead of Leicester City. Phil Foden was a regular in the last three games for Manchester City and could continue to occupy the midfield spot. With both Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez struggling in recent days, they might have to settle for the bench. Leroy Sane, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones are still on the sidelines due to injury,
The only player missing for Brendon Rodgers is Matty James who’s out due to injury. The visitors might go with a different shape in contrast to the 1-1 draw to Norwich City last week but could go with the same set of personnel.

LEI (Expected Playing 11)- Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyancu, Chilwell; Perez, Tielemens, Ndidi, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
