Who's in contention to play?
Portugal international Ricardo Pereira will be phased back into action, says Brendan Rodgers.
Brendan Rodgers told the media on Monday: "Obviously, Dennis [Praet] is out for a period of time (with a hamstring complaint). Everyone else should be fine. Papy Mendy just has a slight strain in his neck, so we'll see how he is, but apart from that, everyone else will be fine. We've got a fully fit squad, virtually, which puts us in a good place."
On Ricardo Pereira's condition, as he recovers from a groin issue, the Northern Irishman added: It’s a long season. It’s great to have him back and available after 10 months or so. It’s just about timing, really. He’s going to be an important player for us in the second part of the season, but he’s available and it’s just step by step for him."
What happened last time?
Academy graduate Harvey Barnes found the net against the Blues last time out in the Premier League.
City initially came from behind to lead at King Power Stadium, following the first of two Antonio Rüdiger headers, with Harvey Barnes and Ben Chilwell finding the net for the home side.
When can I catch match highlights?
James Maddison's perfectly executed opener put City on course for victory against Southampton.

To ensure matches can still go ahead and to help control the spread of COVID-19, the Football Club kindly asks its supporters to continue to follow their team from home and not to gather at any stadia.
