Yaya Toure Captain - Manchester City Team vs Leicester City Confirmed

Leicester boss Claude Puel admits he has unfinished business in the Carabao Cup ahead of tonight's quarter-final clash with Manchester City.

The Etihad Stadium outfit has been dominating the Premier League this season and is clear favourites to win the title, but Puel will be hoping they will be far from their best for his side to have a chance to progress to the next round.

City are leading the rest of the Premier League pack by over 10 points and have been described as one of the best teams the United Kingdom has ever seen.

Carabao Cup semi-final draw: When is it?

Leicester improved as the half developed, and it was Iheanacho causing problems against his former club.

City took the lead on 26 minutes when Ilkay Gundogan embarked on a mazy run and fed in Bernardo Silva, who applied a smart low finish past Ben Hamer.

Guardiola, looking to plot a path past Claude Puel's side, selects Claudio Bravo in goal, with Ederson dropping to the bench.

Vardy headed a Mahrez cross wide of the post in the 80th minute before Bravo just about managed to hang onto a Mahrez delivery moments later as Leicester pushed for the goal that would have forced extra-time.

And just as City looked like they had held out, Kyle Walker was penalised for a challenge on Demarai Gray in the penalty area and Vardy tucked home a penalty in the sixth minute of added-on time.

"I think with the support of our fans we can make a fortress of the King Power Stadium".

The Foxes won the trophy in 1997 and 2000, while West Ham have never won the competition and Arsenal last won this trophy in 1993.

Neither side could find a victor in extra-time and City ran out winners on penalties (4-3) after Vardy's effort struck a post.
