Here we come down the final stretch of what has shaped up to be one of the most exciting Premier League title chases of all time. The second place finisher, whether it’s Manchester City or Liverpool, will end up with an impressive points total, an accumulation so high that it would win the title in pretty much any other season.

The Premier League weekend finishes with a pretty solid fixture- Leicester City at Manchester City. Let’s run down the fitness situation.

For the reigning champions, we won’t be seeing midfielder supreme Kevin De Bruyne (hamstring issue) or back-up goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles injury) the rest of this term. Midfielder Fernandinho (knee issue) is a doubt.

For the visitors, Daniel Amartey is out with an ankle problem. Neither side has anybody suspended for this one.  Leicester have been quite good against the big six this season (or at least better than the mid rest of the mid-table sides), so City won’t take this lightly.
