Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini said he will bring in some of his second choice players for Tuesday’s FA Cup third round replay with Leicester City.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini said he will bring in some of his second choice players for Tuesday’s FA Cup third round replay with Leicester City.

Following the 2-2 draw with the Foxes at Walkers Stadium last weekend, City will now host the Championship outfit at Eastlands and Mancini feels his less played players can do the job.

“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.”
