MCI Vs LEI Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Manchester city’s gruelling period continues when they face off against a tricky Leicester City side today.
As we edge loser to the halfway mark in the Premier League, one thing which no one would have fathomed at the onset of the season was the fact that Manchester City would find themselves behind Leicester City after 17 gameweeks. However, the Premier League has seldom gone according to script and the ongoing edition has been no different to see Leicester City sit four points clear of Manchester City in second place.
With the 39 points amassed from 12 encounters, Leicester City currently find themselves as closest challengers to Liverpool, something which Manchester City will be looking to change in the upcoming gameweeks. The champions of the last edition have endured an appalling campaign, one which has been riddled by lacklustre displays to see the side finding itself trailing league leaders Liverpool by an enormous 14 points.
With Liverpool not playing in this gameweek given their commitments in the Club World Cup, City will be looking to use their clash today to try and bridge the gap between the two sides. However, the side know things are going to be far from easy for them with the club squaring off against a rampant attacking unit in the form of Leicester City, a side which has thrived this season owing to its unnerving commitment to scouring their way through to the goal.
They only managed to draw 1-1 with Norwich City the last time around but as Leicester city embark on their most pivotal period in the season, one which could end up defining their mettle as a side, the team will be looking to come hot out of the blocks today. This is a City side which has crumbled under relentless attacks, something which will buoy Leicester City as they look to pull off another unprecedented result this season.

MCI Vs LEI Dream11 Goal-Keeper
The custodian of his side’s goal, this season has been a truly testing one for Ederson Moraes. Unlike the previous campaign, his side’s defence has wavered and waned, requiring the shot stopper to be heavily involved for his side, a gripping narrative set to repeat itself today to see us bring him in owing to the saves he’s set to pull off today.
MCI Vs LEI Dream11 Defenders
Just the one pick for us from Manchester City for this one with us deciding to venture in with Nicholas Otamendi, someone who loves getting himself on the corners and freekicks to bury a header inside the goal. Elsewhere, Leicester City find representation in the form of Ben Chilwell, a player who has embodied the side’s rousing showings with his penchant for the goal seeing him pull off engrossing attacking layups.
CB Caglar Soyuncu is also being brought in from the setup to wrap up our three man backline for this encounter.
MCI Vs LEI Dream11 Midfielders
With the two goals against Arsenal in the first half of his side’s bygone contest, Kevin de Bruyne was quick to remind everyone why he’s the focal point of this Manchester City side. The player was in vibrant touch in that tie, killing off Arsenal from the contest with a goal inside the first two minutes, a performance which makes him the first player to find his spot here.
CDM Rodrigo Hernandez will also be making a way into our find from City whilst from the opposition we have entire trio of players representing us. James Maddison has been critical to his side not only owing to his ability on the ball during corners and freekicks but his capability to pull off passes and crosses resulting in goals as well.
Harvey Barnes has thrived and flourished in attack this season alongside Dennis Praet, both names who envision making things jittery for Manchester City’s defence on the day to see them both come in as well from Leicester City.
MCI Vs LEI Dream11 Strikers
He ended up missing up on action for more than a month owing to his injury plight but Sergio Aguero continues to remain his side’s leading goal scorer with the 9 goals to his name. The striker is back fit for this one, a name who was an instant selection for us along with Raheem Sterling after he scored in the side’s Carabao Cup quarter-final recently.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin de Bruyne comes out to be our team’s captain for the day whilst Sterling is our vice-captain.
