Leicester vs Manchester City prediction: Leicester 0-1 Manchester City

With Manchester City’s title hopes long since gone, there’s now a real possibility that City might not even finish in the top two.

Although City have lost two of their last four away matches in the league, Leicester’s form has taken a relative dip in recent weeks.

This is a massive six-pointer. The gap between the two sides could be 1 or 7 points by the end of the match.

Leicester vs Manchester City: Who will win?

Manchester City are 8/11 favourites. Leicester are priced at 10/3 to win the game while the draw can be backed at 16/5.

None of Man City’s last five matches have seen both teams find the net. Bet against both teams to score at 11/8.

Sergio Aguero has scored seven goals in 2020. Aguero is 7/2 to open the scoring and 5/6 to score anytime.

Leicester vs Manchester City Premier League match preview

It’s third vs second on Saturday as Leicester host Manchester City at the King Power Stadium.

Following two consecutive defeats without scoring a goal, Manchester City returned to winning ways on Wednesday night in their rescheduled home clash with West Ham.

Rodri and Kevin de Bruyne scored either side of half-time to secure a 2-0 win.

Leicester followed up their 2-2 draw at home to Chelsea by picking up a decent away point at Wolves last Friday. Consecutive draws leaves Leicester without a win in their last three. Leicester have only managed to win two of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Despite their mediocre form, the Foxes look nailed on to secure a Champions League place. They’re currently 10 points above fifth.

Leicester have the third-best home record this season, behind Liverpool and Manchester City. The Foxes have only lost two out of 13 games at the King Power this season.

Man City have the second-best away record in the league, winning eight and drawing one of their 13 matches on the road. Not even Liverpool have managed to outscore City’s 34 goals away from home.

Jamie Vardy scored 11 goals in an eight-game spell toward the end of 2019. The striker has now gone eight without scoring and is yet to get off the mark in 2020.

These two sides have met 17 times in the Premier League. Man City have come out on top on nine occasions to Leicester’s six. City were 3-1 winners in the reverse fixture at the Etihad in December. Jamie Vardy put Leicester in front before goals from Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus.

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Wilfried Ndidi has recovered from the knee injury which kept him out of the last two games.

Manchester City team news vs Leicester

David Silva is a doubt after picking up a knock against West Ham.

Aymeric Laporte is nearing full match sharpness and should keep his place in defence.

Fernandinho was given the night off on Wednesday and should partner Larpote at the back. Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones are alternate options for Guardiola.

Leroy Sane is nearing a return to first-team action but Saturday’s game will come too soon for him. Likewise, Raheem Sterling remains sidelined, so Riyad Mahrez should start against his former club.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is available again after completing his ban.
