No Haaland in City’s starting XI

This just in: The big Norwegian goal machine does not start for Manchester City and is also absent from the matchday squad. Julian Alvarez starts in his place and is one of four changes to the City side. Jamie Vardy starts for Leicester City.

Early team news

Wilfred Ndidi has been spotted back on the Leicester training pitches after missing almost the entire month with a hamstring injury. The Nigerian defensive midfielder will not feature today but Leicester fans will be heartened by his return to full fitness. Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand remain sidelined for Leicester, but Jonny Evans could feature. The central defender has been struggling with a calf injury but was due to be assessed ahead of the game.

Erling Haaland was also due to be assessed yesterday after being withdrawn at half-time during Manchester City’s midweek scoreless draw with Borussia Dortmund. Haaland appeared to suffer a foot injury when tackled by Emre Can and was also reported to be suffering from a fever.

City goalkeeper Ederson is due to return after missing the Dortmund game but Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker remain out as they recover from surgery but both players remain hopeful of being available for World Cup selection. “They are optimistic,” said Pep Guardiola. “They are in touch with Gareth [Southgate]. Hopefully they can be ready and get selected.”

Leicester City v Manchester City

Premier League: It’s a tale of two Citys at the King Power Stadium this afternoon, with Leicester hosting the reigning champions in the first of the weekend’s 10 top flight matches. After a dreadful start to the season, the hosts are finally showing signs of life and go into this extremely stern test of their mettle on the back of two wins and their third consecutive clean sheet. In a demonstration of remarkable efficiency in front of goal, they have scored an impressive six goals in their past two games from just five shots on target.

By their own extremely high standards, City are in a comparative slump, having won just one of their past four domestically and in Europe, failing to score in three of those games. It’s almost certainly a minor blip and they remain second in the table, two points behind Arsenal and already qualified for the Champions League knockout stages. Kick-off at the King Power is at 12.30pm (BST) but we’ll have team news and build-up in the meantime.
