Leicester also have been showing positive results in their last five matches in all competition. Brendan Rodgers arrival has given a pretty positive vibes so far for the foxes.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho’s conditions remain doubtful for the game. Nevertheless, Man City can still count on Aguero, Sterling, Bernardo Silva and David Silva.
Leicester doesn’t have much issues with absentee for Monday as only Amartey who won’t be available. Rodgers is set to rely on Jamie Vardy in leading his squad’s front line.
In midfield, Tielemans along with Ndidi’s collaboration on that central area will face a sternt test. Just as Leicester’s defense, lead by their goalie, Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester won’t go down easily as Rodgers’ side will give their best in stopping City. Guardiola’s men are favorite to win, but they must not underestimate their opponent.
