The Foxes will be hoping for a repeat result at best, the last time they met Man City at the King Power Stadium, where they saw their side hold the Premier League side to a 2-2 draw.
Leicester City have scored 13 goals in the Capital One Cup so far – more than any other team – and Nigel Pearson will be hoping that they can continue this high-tempo attacking football against a Man City side that have struggled on the road this season.
Manuel Pellegrini is without star man Sergio Aguero tonight, however the attacking oppositions that the Chilean manager has, would be a dream for any manager. Man City come into this fixture on the back of an impressive 6-3 victory hosting Arsenal and Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping that his sides 3 goal turn around at Bayern Munich will be the end to his sides poor away form.
With a tough league fixture away at QPR baring down on Nigel pearson, the Foxes boss will be looking at levelling points at the top of the Championship, and so Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be looking to rest some key players of theirs as well as they attempt to do the same with what should be, an easy fixture against struggling Fulham.
