Man City hit by flu

Bowyer Lee Bowyer is available again for Leeds


Manchester City may have up to four players out with 'flu when they entertain Leeds at Maine Road in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Defender Richard Edghill, Danny Granville, Tony Grand and Jamie Pollock could all miss the tie because of illness.

Manager Joe Royle has still to decide on his striking partnership - a decision made more difficult by cup-tied forward Robert Taylor.

Leeds are boosted by the return of both captain Lucas Radebe and midfielder Lee Bowyer.

Both are back after one-match suspensions, but Michael Bridges is still banned.

Stephen McPhail should be fit after a hamstring problem.


Arsenal v Leicester

The Gunners have been given a big boost with the news that Nigerian striker Kanu has been given the all-clear to turn out against Leicester.

Martin Keown replaces the injured Tony Adams, while Dennis Bergkamp, Ray Palour and Marc Overmars are out.

Emile Heskey missed training with 'flu and Tony Cottee is due to have a fintess test on a calf injury for the Foxes.

Goalkeeper Tim Flowers, Muzzy Izzet and Andrew Impey are already ruled out.
