Sports Mole looks at how Leicester City could line up against Manchester City in Saturday's Premier League clash.

Leicester City are still unsure of the fitness of a number of key players ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

The Foxes have had a two-week break since beating Manchester United 3-1 to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

However, not all of Leicester's players have been able to rest up, with a number of first-teamers instead cramming in three more fixtures with their national sides.

That is not necessarily all bad news, though, as midfielder Dennis Praet was given some much-needed minutes for Belgium and impressed with a goal and an assist against Belarus.

Praet, who has started just one game for Leicester in 2021, could now be in Brendan Rodgers's thoughts for the visit of table-topping Man City.

James Justin and Harvey Barnes remain on the sidelines, however, while James Maddison, Wes Morgan, Ricardo Pereira and Cengiz Under are all fitness doubts.

Kelechi Iheanacho started twice for Nigeria during their March fixtures and, assuming that he has returned fit, he will lead the line for the Foxes against his former side.

The 24-year-old has scored seven goals in his last four appearances for Leicester, which he will be looking to build on here.

Leicester City possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Soyuncu, Evans, Fofana; Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Praet, Castagne; Vardy, Iheanacho
