Manchester City v Leicester City: Latest team news

Have your say

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri will assess the fitness of recent signing Daniel Amartey before deciding if he will be involved for the first time in a top-of-the-table clash at Manchester City.

Amartey joined the Barclays Premier League leaders on January 23 but has yet to make the squad, having last played a competitive game for former club FC Copenhagen at the start of December because of the winter break.

The Ghana international’s versatility - he was signed mainly as a central midfielder but can also play at centre-back and right-back - is the reason Ranieri has allowed Ritchie De Laet and Yohan Benalouane to go out on loan. Only Matty James (knee) and Jeff Schlupp (hamstring) will definitely be absent for Leicester.

Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Schwarzer, Simpson, Chilwell, Fuchs, Wasilewski, Huth, Morgan, King, Drinkwater, Kante, Amartey, Albrighton, Inler, Gray, Mahrez, Dyer, Vardy, Ulloa, Okazaki.
