Manchester City vs Leicester City Football Predictions and Betting Odds: Team News

Pep Guardiola will seemingly be left with lesser choices as most of his first-choice players recently returned from their respective international duties. From Raheem Sterling to Kevin De Bruyne, most of the players who featured in either EURO or Copa America are expected to skip the Community Shield. Pep Guardiola is still in search of his perfect replacement for Sergio Aguero. Manchester City are closely linked with top strikers like Harry Kane and Erling Haaland.

Manchester City vs Leicester City Football Predictions and Betting Odds: Man City’s probable playing

Goalkeeper:

26-year-old Zack Steffen can start for Man City in the Community Shield in the absence of Ederson. It will be Steffen’s 11th start for Man City and 3rd in the Wembley Stadium.

Defenders:

Natan Ake showed a lot of promise during his AFC Bournemouth days. The same reason why he was roped in by the Blues. However, he was left out of favours by Guardiola in the 20-21 season. Nevertheless, he is expected to be used more in the upcoming season and an appearance in the Community Shield might boost his confidence.

Ruben Dias is expected to appear in the game, as Portugal were only eliminated in the quarter-finals stage. João Cancelo and Benjamin Mendy might be seen in the full-back roles.

Midfield

Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan can be named in the starting 11 after failing to find minutes in the Spain and Germany EURO camp, respectively. Fernandinho will be the third mid-fielder who can feature for Pep Guardiola in the Community Shield.

Forwards

Riyad Mahrez has had the most relaxed summer out of all the City players. He will surely start for City against Leicester. Phil Foden lost his place in England’s 11 as Gareth Southgate wanted to try other options. Foden can make it to City’s lineup for their first match of the season.

Ferran Torres will want to impress the City fans after a decent cameo in his debut season. He will be eager to play in the Community Shield even after having a busy summer.

Players like Cole Palmer, Liam Delap and Luke Mbete are also in line to play for City in the pre-season games. Guardiola will look to promote more players which can come handy for the next season every now and then. The afoirementioned players can make an appearance from the bench against Leicester at Wembley.

Brendan Rodgers, on the other hand, will have majority of his first-team players available for Man City clash at Wembley. Leicester City are a strong side to even give a first-string Man City a run for their money, let alone the second-choice Blues. Leicester City are expected to win the game with likes of Jaime Vardy and James Maddison urging to kick-start their season on a positive note.
