Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 7.45pm GMT. Live coverage of the match is available on BT Sport 1.

Overview

Leicester come into this fixture after a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield. Christian Benteke came on as a substitute for his compatriot Divock Origi and the former Aston Villa man's goal was the difference in the end.

The Foxes lost their top spot to Arsenal after the Gunners sealed a 2-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth. Claudio Ranieri's side, who have a game in hand, can regain the top spot if they manage to beat the Citizens on Tuesday.

Manchester City, on the other hand, bounced back from their defeat to Arsenal with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Sunderland. Manuel Pellegrini is aware that Leicester cannot be taken lightly as they have moved up the table after managing to get results against the top teams.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are the two key players for the hosts and they will be looking to trouble City's defence at the King Power Stadium. City, on the other hand, also boast a very good attack and that is led by Sergio Aguero.
