Burnley Team News
Leicester will be without Wesley Fofana, James Justin, and Wilfred Ndidi due to injuries, but Jonny Evans’ presence in the middle of the defence might provide the Foxes a major boost.
Evans did not play for Northern Ireland during the international break owing to a combination of injuries and illness, but he might face his former club on Saturday.
Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy, who both scored against Palace before the international break, might play as the front two, while Ricardo Pereira and Boubakary Soumare are battling for a place in the starting XI.
Manchester City Team News
Due to their late returns from international duty, City will be without Brazilian duo Ederson and Gabriel Jesus, with Zack Steffen set to fill in for the former while Ferran Torres is out with a broken foot.
The absence of Jesus frees up a position on the right for Riyad Mahrez, and it’s unclear whether Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko will be allowed to line up here.
Phil Foden’s lacklustre display against Hungary followed a man-of-the-match performance against Andorra, but the prodigy is in no danger of losing his position here after his well-taken Anfield goal.
Manchester City XI: Steffen; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Foden; Mahrez, Silva, Grealish
Burnley XI: Pope; Lowton, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor; Cornet, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Vydr
