Leicester are wobbling at the moment and appear to be slowly losing their momentum. Manchester City, meanwhile, are reeling from the shocking Champions League ban, in addition to preparing for their encounter with Real Madrid on Wednesday. Head to head speaking, City are superior to the Foxes and we expect the things to remain the same in this fixture too. However, they are playing as visitors and that may make things a bit more difficult for them.

Match Facts

  • Manchester City have won 4 of their last 6 meetings against Leicester City in all competitions.
  • The Citizens have seen under 2.5 goals in their last three meetings.
  • Leicester City have won just 1 match in their last 5 fixtures in the Premier League.
  • The same trend continues at home for the Foxes, with just 1 win at the King Power Stadium in their last five appearances.
  • The last meeting between the two giants ended in a 3-1 defeat for Leicester.

Leicester City League Form: W-L-L-W-D-D

Leicester City are sitting at the 3rd place with a 9-point cushion over Chelsea. They are also four points behind Manchester City and a win here would bring them closer to the second place. However, by the looks of things in the last few weeks, the team’s form is slowly going downhill. The last week’s goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers didn’t help the side much. Prior to that, they were held to a 2-2 draw by Chelsea in a match that should ended in a victory for Leicester.
These draws followed the disappointing exit of the hosts from League Cup in the form of a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa. They lost with a similar score to Burnley and Southampton in the Premier League as well, thus casting doubts over Brendan Rodgers’ men. With just two wins in their last eight matches in all competitions, it is hard to imagine the players finding their stride against a side as determined as Manchester City.
That said, Leicester are playing at home and in their last six meetings against City, they have suffered just one defeat. Rodgers can also seek some confidence from the fact that his side managed to restrict City to score no more than 1 goals in four of those fixtures. The Foxes will need to dig in deeper to find their rhythm. In the past, they have delivered some promising results like 4-1 win over West Ham and 3-0 win over Newcastle United.

Key Players

Leicester are likely to play with three defenders at the back with Christian Fuchs expected to form a key component of the defense. Jamie Vardy will lead the charge up front in the attack, along with Ayoze Perez. Wilfred Ndidi’s fitness will be assessed ahead of this crucial fixture.

Manchester City League Form: W-W-D-W-L-W

Manchester City are heading into this match with an opportunity to build a 7-point lead over Leicester. Despite being 22 points behind the league leaders Liverpool, the Citizens will be keen on retaining that 2nd place spot and end the season as runners-up. The visitors have lost just 1 match in their last 7 Premier League games – a 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in London. Apart from that, things have been pretty much in line for City – a 2-0 win over Sheffield United, 6-1 rout against Aston Villa, and a 2-2 draw to Crystal Palace.
Pep Guardiola’s side secured a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Ham United in the midweek. However, that win marks the start of a tumultuous week where City will face some big guns like Real Madrid in the Champions League. But given the form of the team and the star-studded line-up, City is well placed to put up an equal fight and hold their guns. They also need not worry about other commitments like winning the League Cup, following their defeated to Manchester United.

Key Players

David Silva may be a doubt for the weekend’s fixture but there is no dearth of talent in Manchester City. Kevin de Bryune, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez – these blistering, in-form players can wreak some heavy damage to Leicester’s defense.

Where to Bet on Leicester City vs. Manchester City

This is going to be a tight encounter. City will start as the favourites here but Leicester, given their record at home, will put up a promising fight. Expect some goals here but the end outcome is most likely a draw or a win for the visitors.
