After Chelsea’s win over West Brom on Friday, Leicester City are no longer the reigning champions of England. The good news is, as fantastic as that chapter of our history was, there is still more football to watch. In fact, our first game as not-champions promises to be a very fun to watch, with both teams coming into the games after big wins.
Our opponents, Manchester City, are one of the most entertaining teams in the league and as they fight for the Champions League, they still have everything to play for. As daunting a challenge as that sounds, the Foxes actually have a great recent history in these games, with comfortable 4-2 and 3-1 wins in the teams’ last two games.
Check out below for all the information on how to watch, along with team news and lineups when they come.

Leicester City Team News:
Morgan and Drinkwater are out, while Robert Huth is a doubt. That could create some holes at the back that Shakespeare will have to fill creatively.
By our reckoning the last time #LCFC did not have either @Wes5L1nk or @robert_huth in their defence in PL was 2-1 defeat at Villa, Dec 2014.— Rob Tanner (@RobTannerMerc) May 13, 2017
