City's flawless run of 16 wins suffered a minor blip when they were beaten 0-2 by Manchester United in early March. But other than that, they seem to be on course for a quadruple and go into the King Power clash on the back of four consecutive wins across all competitions.

Brendan Rodgers' Foxes are just out of a significant 3-1 FA quarter-final win over Manchester United and that should give them confidence as they approach the April 3rd home game.

Manchester City team news

Veteran striker Sergio Aguero, who will bid adieu to the club at the end of the season, may not make it to the starting XI on Saturday and instead Gabriel Jesus could get the nod. While Jesus plays the role of the lone striker, he will probably have Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling flanking him on the right and left. For a change, Guardiola has a fully fit squad to choose from, although a number of players are yet to return from international duties.

Leicester City team news

For the Foxes, midfielder Dennis Praet is all set to return after featuring for his country Belgium in the WC 2022 qualifiers. The injury-prone Praet who has appeared in just one game for his club in 2021 could be well in line for a start on Saturday. Harvey Barnes and James Justin are ruled out while fitness of players like James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira, Cengiz Under and Wes Morgan remain under doubt. The onus of getting goals will thus be on Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho who is in the form of his life, getting seven goals from his last four outings for Leicester.

Leicester City probable XI in a 3-5-2 formation: Kasper Schmeichel (goal); Caglar Soyuncu, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana; Marc Albrighton, Youri Tielemans, Wilfried Ndidi, Dennis Praet, Timothy Castagne; Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy

Manchester City probable XI in a 4-3-3 formation: Ederson (goal); Joao Cancelo, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Kevin de Bruyne, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan; Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling

There will not be much pressure on City going into Saturday's clash as they do not need to win all their remaining eight Premier League to clinch the title what with a 14-point gap over their nearest rivals, Manchester United. Leicester, just a solitary point behind United, have plenty to play for over the remaining seven weeks and will aim to finish as high as they can on the table and secure a top-four spot and a Champions League berth in the process. The Foxes will be handicapped by the absence of many of their key players, especially in the attack, and against a City side in such sublime form, a seventh home loss for the season looks a probability.
