Jesus and Aguero to Start? Man City’s Predicted Line-up v Leicester City

By Joel Turner IN General,League Cup,Lineup - 12:10 Dec 19th 2017
 

Man City are aiming for a third EFL Cup in five seasons when they visit Leicester this evening aiming for a spot in the EFL Cup semi-finals.

Former manager Manuel Pellegrini won the competition twice but Pep Guardiola's first campaign last season was stopped by Jose Mourinho's Man United side.

City have lost just once in all competitions this season against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola is expected to field a side that mixes youth and experienced players, as he did for wins against West Brom and Wolves in the tournament.

Players like Tosin Adarabioyo and Oleksandr Zinchenko should feature, along with Phil Foden - who is fresh from winning BBC Young sportsperson of the year and his first Premier League start last weekend.

Some changes for City are enforced, however, with defenders Vincent Kompany and John Stones sidelined with injuries and full-back Benjamin Mendy still recovering from a serious knee injury.

City are expected to start some of their most potent attacking talents, with Raheem Sterling likely to be rested but Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane all expected to feature.

Veteran midfielder Yaya Toure is also expected to start as Brazillian midfielder Fernadinho enjoys a well-earned rest from first-team duties.
