Yaya Toure Captain - Manchester City Team vs Leicester City Confirmed

Mark Lawrenson

Leicester City will face the might of Manchester City in tonight's Carabao Cup Quarter-Final.

Kelechi Iheanacho is in line to make his second Carabao Cup appearance for Leicester City against his former club, Manchester City at the King Power Stadium on today (Tuesday), Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Foxes have no new injury concerns ahead of their first League Cup quarter-final since they won the tournament in 1999-2000, but they will be without defender Robert Huth and midfielder Matty James, who are still short of match fitness.

The home side will need to play well if they are to beat Man City who are now unbeaten in the Premier League. Eliaquim Mangala and Danilo add defensive experience, while Ilkay Gundogan is also handed a start.

Gundogan came close once again in the 20th minute as his chipped effort brought a save from Hamer, before Adarabioyo headed just wide of the post from the resulting corner.

Guardiola, looking to plot a path past Claude Puel's side, selects Claudio Bravo in goal, with Ederson dropping to the bench.

Leicester City boss is still gutted by Southampton's cup final defeat.

And just as City looked like they had held out, Kyle Walker was penalised for a challenge on Demarai Gray in the penalty area and Vardy tucked home a penalty in the sixth minute of added-on time.

The Foxes won the trophy in 1997 and 2000, while West Ham have never won the competition and Arsenal last won this trophy in 1993.

City scored all four of their spot kicks to put the pressure on the home side, and Vardy and Mahrez failed in back-to-back penalties as the visitors booked their spot in the semi-finals with a 4-3 success.
