Brendan Rodgers’ side will face Chelsea on May 15 at Wembley after deservedly beating below-par Southampton in Sunday’s semi-final.
Man City have won four in a row in all competitions and remain on course for a quadruple, while Leicester have won three on the spin and are also battling on multiple fronts.
Rodgers selected Iheanacho for a fourth straight Premier League game, the striker’s longest run in the team since 2018, and he took his tally to five goals in three games with a brilliant treble against bottom side Sheffield United.
Iheanacho equalised in the 1-1 draw at Turf Moor with a wonderful volleyed effort just after the half-hour mark.
Leicester have lost to Slavia Prague in the Europa League and Arsenal in the top flight in the last week, and they may have feared the worst when they fell behind as Matej Vydra ended a league goal drought lasting 1,212 minutes.

Both players are set to be out for around another two weeks, during which time the Foxes will play four Premier League matches, including hosting Liverpool at the King Power Stadium, and their FA Cup fifth-round tie against Brighton.
The midfielder only featured for 42 minutes before he was replaced by Papy Mendy in their Premier League draw against Everton on Wednesday.
The England striker has scored 13 goals in all competitions this season and Rodgers described the operation as a “small corrective procedure.”
