It was a rare low point in an otherwise spectacular season for Pep Guardiola and Co, who will be in for a battle this afternoon.

Fernandinho celebrates after scoring a cracker from range, striking first-time from outside the box. However, the flag goes up. 

Schmeichel came charging out towards the referee instantly, complaining that Aguero was in an off-side position and blocking his view. 

The goal is chalked-off and its a let-off for Leicester. 

We’re underway after a minute’s applause for the late Frank Worthington, the legendary Leicester forward who died aged 72 during the international break. 

Leicester get us going in their all blue kit, with City lining-up in their white third kit. 

With kick-off fast approaching, here’s a reminder of the line-ups:

LEI: Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Amartey; Albrighton, Ndidi, Tielemans, Castagne; Perez, Iheanacho, Vardy. 

MCI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Mendy, Fernandinho (C), Rodrigo, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Jesus, Aguero





Player of the month, five goals in three Premier League games and now a new three-year deal at the King Power.

Iheanacho faces his old club today and will be hungry to continue his searing form. 




There’s five changes from Pep Guardiola after City’s FA Cup clash with Everton before the international break, with Aguero the headline starter after announcing he will leave the club at the end of the season this week. 

It’s only the 32-year-old’s fifth start of the campaign, searching for his second goal. Mahrez, Rodri, Kevin de Bruyne and Mendy also come into the side. 

Meanwhile, Amartey replacing Soyuncu is Rodgers’ only change, but James Maddison could appear for a run out as he returns to the bench following an injury. 

Good evening and welcome to Sportsmail’s coverage of Manchester City’s trip to face Leicester City in the Premier League. 

We’re back in domestic action after the international break and immediately we have a crucial top-four clash, with first facing third.
