As promised, team news has just landed and there are a few surprises to keep the fans on their toes at a frosty King Power Stadium. 

Gokhan Inler comes in as Danny Drinkwater fails a late fitness test for Leicester City. It isn't all doom and gloom for the Foxes, however, as Jamie Vardy defies the medical experts to start as a lone forward, with Royad Mahrez tucked in just behind.

A far greater blow falls on Manchester City who, as expected are without Vincent Kompany, but Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne start in attacking positions to alleviate the frustration. 

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Morgan (c), Fuchs; Inler, Drinkwater, Kanté; Mahrez, Vardy, Albrighton.

Subs: De Laet, King, Okazaki, Ulloa, Dyer, Wasilewski, Schwarzer.

Manchester City: Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Mangala, Kolarov, Silva, Fernandinho, Toure, Sterling, De Bruyne, Aguero.

Subs: Caballero, Demichelis, Horsfield, Zabaleta, Navas, Bony, Iheanacho.
