David Silva is available v Leicester City
Manchester City confirmed the news on their club website late on Christmas Day.

The 32-year-old suffered a hamstring injury at Stamford Bridge. He’s missed matches against Hoffenheim, Everton and Crystal Palace.
But Silva could return for Pep Guardiola on Wednesday, as the club announced:
Manchester City midfielder David Silva has recovered from the hamstring injury that has kept him out since the defeat to Chelsea a fortnight ago.
Silva, the fulcrum of our attacking play, has been sorely missed and his return provides a timely boost to Pep Guardiola.

Jamie Vardy will lead Leicester’s attack against the Sky Blues.
Vardy scored Leicester’s winner last weekend against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
