Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers believes Manchester City will use their shock European ban to inspire them to a successful end to the season.

Pep Guardiola's side were hit with a two-year suspension from the Champions League and Europa League and fined 30 million euros by UEFA on Friday for alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations.

Leicester face City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League champions' second game since the ban.

Second placed City, who plan to appeal against the suspension, beat West Ham 2-0 on Wednesday to four points clear of third placed Leicester in the Premier League table.

While Guardiola's men are 22 points behind leaders Liverpool, Rodgers doesn't expect any slip in City's standards following the ban, with this season's Champions League, the FA Cup and League Cup all available as potential trophies to ease their pain.

"It will galvanise them as a squad, these types of situations where there's questions around the club," Rodgers told reporters on Thursday.
