    Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will play no part against Manchester City, with Brendan Rodgers refusing to rush the Nigerian back after missing the last two games with a knee injury.

    The Foxes will also be without fellow midfielders Hamza Choudhury (suspended) and Nampalys Mendy (knee), but defender Ryan Bennett is hoping to feature for Leicester for the first time since arriving on loan from Wolves while Matty James is also in contention following a long-term Achilles injury.

    David Silva will be assessed ahead of Manchester City's trip to the King Power Stadium after he was forced off in the win against West Ham.

    Charlie's prediction

    What a magical game. Leicester have gone from having a sensational season to a 'very good' season as it stands. They are in third and have enough of a gap to make the top four. They could slide, but this is where Brendan Rodgers will pit his ethos and tactics against Pep Guardiola.

    More on this story

    On the other side, Aymeric Laporte is back to stop that vulnerability in the heart of the City defence. Things have calmed down and not massively different, but there is an authority there. They look as if they have their comfort back, and that makes such a big difference. The UEFA ban is hanging over them, so it is hard for the club to put it to the side. They have been and will be talking about it for weeks. All they can do is put in the performances ahead of the Real Madrid game.
