Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League meeting with Leicester City.

Manchester City take on Leicester City on Monday night knowing that victory could leave them on the brink of winning the Premier League title.

A defeat for Liverpool at Newcastle United on Saturday evening will give City the opportunity to retain the top-flight crown at the Etihad Stadium, but the title race will go to the final weekend if the Merseyside giants avoid defeat at St James' Park.

Pep Guardiola witnessed his side remain ahead of Liverpool with a hard-fought 1-0 triumph over Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for City ahead of welcoming Brendan Rodgers's side.
