How Manchester City could line up against Leicester City

Manchester City will have Brazil duo Ederson and Gabriel Jesus available against Leicester City this weekend after a FIFA-imposed suspension was overturned late on Friday night.

Zack Steffen is out following a positive coronavirus test, meaning that there could have been a rare start between the sticks for Scott Carson, who has only ever made one appearance for the Citizens, but Ederson has now been cleared to feature between the sticks.

Aymeric Laporte is available despite suffering an injury scare on international duty, while Man City are hopeful that both Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne will be able to play a part at the King Power Stadium.

It seems unlikely that either Foden or De Bruyne will start, though, meaning that Gabriel Jesus, Jack Grealish and Ferran Torres could feature as the front three on Saturday afternoon.

Bernardo Silva wanted to leave the Etihad Stadium over the summer but has remained at the club, and the Portugal international is in line to start if De Bruyne is not deemed fit enough to make the first XI.

Kyle Walker and John Stones both represented England over the international break and are likely to start despite the latter seemingly picking up a small muscular problem during his nation's clash with Poland.

Elsewhere, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo should feature, while Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan are likely to be handed midfield positions for the reigning English champions.

Manchester City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Bernardo, Rodri, Gundogan; Grealish, F Torres, Gabriel Jesus body check tags ::
