The race for the Top 4 is in Manchester City's hands thanks to last weekend's results and the next three matches coming against mid-table opponents who don't have too much to play for this season. City need nine points from those three matches to guarantee third place and group stage qualification, and it's safe to say the Sky Blues are favorites to get Top 4.

Against Leicester City, Pep Guardiola will face last season's champions, who went deep into the Champions League and will finish the campaign in strong fashion thanks to the managerial change. Craig Shakespeare has done a solid job in getting the team back to basics and using the defensive solidity and counter-attacking prowess of the Foxes who became champions of England to avoid relegation and finish in a comfortable position.

Leicester don't play for Europe, they just play for pride and dignity, as well as giving Shakespeare the job next season. Unfortunately for him, he might miss some key players: captain West Morgan is out with a hamstring injury, while his partner Robert Huth may miss out with a foot injury. Midfielder Danny Drinkwater is also out.

Guardiola may still miss his top scorer Sergio Agüero, but John Stones has taken part in training this week and is likely to be available at least for the bench.

Below is the full list of injury team news. No players are suspended for this one:
