Manchester City will visit Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this afternoon and the Cityzens have been handed some good news.

Earlier this morning, FIFA have confirmed that City duo Ederson and Gabriel Jesus will be able to play against Leicester today.

The Brazilian pair were set to miss the match at the King Power Stadium after Brazil asked FIFA to invoke a ‘five-day’ rule, meaning players whose clubs didn’t let them play for their country would not bGette allowed to play for clubs this weekend.

In the released statement, FIFA said that Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay have withdrawn their complaints.

Ederson and Jesus were not allowed to go on international duty due to COVID-19 rule which would have seen them get quarantined after ttheir return.
