Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says Patrick Vieira will start their FA Cup replay against Leicester City.

Vieira has struggled for minutes this season.

"Patrick Vieira is an important member of our squad," said Mancini.

"He is a good player, who has lots of experience.

"He will probably play, along with Jerome Boateng, James Milner, David Silva, Jo and Joleon Lescott. We have other players that we can win this game."
