Leicester City vs Manchester City – Premier League : Leicester had their moment of glory 2 seasons ago when they were able to clinch the Premier League title…
Last year they already had a “normal” campaign, considering what their objectives are and this season they are on a mid-table position, but not very far from the relegation spots.
The team started off their campaign poorly, but on the last rounds they managed to get back on track and get 7 out of the 9 possible points in play on their last 3 encounters.
Those were very important points that allowed Leicester to leave the relegation zone. At home, they won their last match, 2-0 against Everton, but against the more powerful teams they weren’t able to resist.
Chelsea and Liverpool defeated this team at home. Still, they are always a dangerous team with players like Mahrez, Vardy or Okazaki, who has been scoring well this season.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City is playing very well and they are without a doubt the team that plays better at the moment. They are a strong team, very customized, always having a lot of ball possession and quality on their matches.
Their players up front have great chemistry and this is really a team in a true Pep Guardiola’s style, who deserves a lot of credit for the way he build this team.
City leads the Premier League with an 8-point advantage over Manchester United and Tottenham, and that gives the more some Comfort,
even because they are also in 1st place on their Champions’ League group, which allows the manager to rotate the team at his pleasure.
Leicester City vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Manchester City is favoured to win here in Leicester and I believe they’ll be able to get another win. Guardiola lost here last season and he will surely be reminded of the difficulties that Leicester caused them last season.
This is an important match, the first one after the international break, and Guardiola knows that the team can’t ease up or decrease their usual intensity and dynamic, because they are at risk of seeing United and Spurs getting closer.
Even on this match and playing away from home, I think that City will take over the game, having more ball possession, more control and creating more goal chances.
The way they’re playing, it won’t be Leicester stealing points from them surely.
