Manchester City vs Leicester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester City dropped points for a second time in four games after a 1-1 draw with Burnley at Turf Moor. Danilo provided Pep Guardiola’s team with an expected lead early in the first half. However, Burnley put more pressure on the away team as the game wore on and secured a deserved equaliser in the 82nd minute through Johann Guðmundsson. Leicester City are winless in two after a 1-1 draw at Swansea City. Jamie Vardy continued his recent form with the opening goal after 17 minutes. However, Federico Fernandez was able to level the scores in the second half.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

City may have failed to score more than one goal against Burnley, but it was not down to a lack of chances. Manchester City created a large number of opportunities, while the team has scored more than 2.5 goals in five out of the last six matches at the Etihad stadium. At the same time, City have kept only two clean sheets in the last nine home matches. I would back both teams to score.

Manchester City have been winning at half-time and full-time in the five of the last six matches at Etihad stadium. While Leicester City have not had such patterns, Guardiola’s team are overwhelmingly strong and I would back the hosts to win at half-time and full-time.

Manchester City Preview

Any other team would be alarmed at managing only two wins in the last four league matches, but Manchester City have been so good this season that Pep Guardiola may get his team back on a strong winning sequence sooner rather than later. Manchester City hold a 13-point advantage in the table and Jose Mourinho has already conceded the title. However, City players will be wary about falling into a trap, as the club are still has several big matches coming up. Since City are still involved in all of the competitions, it could potentially invoke tiredness into the team. Sergio Aguero is the leading scorer at City with 17 goals.

Manchester City Team News

Leroy Sane (ankle), Fabian Delph (knee), Gabriel Jesus (ligament), and Benjamin Mendy (cruciate ligament) are certainly ruled out of the game, while David Silva is rated as doubtful with a hip injury.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City can still hope to make a push for the European qualification places, but the club’s recent run of just two wins in five games does not bode well for the same. However, Claude Puel will have reasons to be happy, as the likes of Burnley and Bournemouth have also been dropping points in recent times. Even though Leicester have spent majority of the last few weeks in the top 10 places, there is a significant danger of clubs like Everton and Bournemouth pushing Leicester back. The club’s away form has been providing the hiccups, as the 13 away matches have returned only three victories. Jamie Vardy is the top scorer with 12 league goals.

Leicester City Team News

Shinji Okazaki is the only player unavailable for Leicester City manager Claude Puel with a knee injury.
