Erling Haaland missing & Foden benched: Manchester City’s squad to face Leicester revealed

Pep Guardiola has made a number of changes for Manchester City’s clash with Leicester.


Manchester City face a trip to the King Power in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off.

The Sky Blues head into the game sat second in the Premier League table.

However, a win will, temporarily at least, take them above Arsenal, who are at home to Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

As for Leicester, they are 17th in the league and will fall into the relegation zone if Leeds win their game in hand on the Foxes.

However, Brendan Rodgers’ side have improved in recent weeks and have lost just one of their last five.

Manchester City are also set to face Leicester without their star player, Erling Haaland.

Haaland picked up a knock in midweek vs Borussia Dortmund and was pictured limping earlier in the week.

It has now been revealed that the Norwegian is not in Saturday’s squad, with Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez on the bench.

This suggests a front three of Jack Grealish, Julian Alvarez and Bernardo Silva.
