Manchester City can, temporarily at least, move 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League if they beat Leicester on Saturday.

The Citizens have an almost unblemished record on home soil this season, as Everton are the only side to take points off the league leaders at the Etihad Stadium, with City winning all 12 of their top-flight matches since that 1-1 draw.

Pep Guardiola's side have already beaten Leicester twice this season, once in the league and once in the Carabao Cup, although they needed penalties to secure their cup triumph over the Foxes.

David Silva missed City's last match against Burnley with an abdominal injury and he remains a doubt heading into the weekend, as does John Stones, who continues to struggle with a knee problem.

Leicester's build-up to the match has been dominated by the speculation surrounding Riyad Mahrez, who has missed the Foxes last two matches after failing to secure a deadline day move to Man City.

The Algeria international has also missed a large amount of training due to his disappointment at not securing a move, but reports on Friday have suggested that he has now re-joined the rest of the squad, although he is unlikely to be considered for Saturday's contest.

Leicester have failed to win either of their matches during Mahrez' self-imposed exile, while Shinji Okazaki will definitely miss the trip to the Etihad due to a knee injury.
