Manchester City vs Leicester – Premier League : Even when Manchester City slips up, their advantage is still huge on the Premier League
On this round, the team hosts Leicester. The first aspect to consider here is that on the last round, we have seen City’s second slip-up on this competition, the first one against a small club.
The team wasn’t able to overcome Burnley away from home and the match finished on a draw. United has won and has chopped up the disadvantage a little, but still, it is no reason for alarm.
City is still isolated in the lead of the competition with 69 points conquered, having a 13-points advantage over Manchester United that is in 2nd place.
At home, Guardiola’s team has a nearly perfect record with 12 wins and 1 draw, having scored 45 goals and conceded 9 so far.

Leicester comes into this match with City involved on the Mahrez controversy. The player that has been one of the key figures of the team in the last couple of seasons is on strike and depressed precisely because he didn’t manage to seal his move to Manchester City.
On the Premier League they are already winless for 2 matches, with the loss against Everton and the draw at home against Swansea on the last round.
Manchester City vs Leicester – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This isn’t about betting against Manchester City. But more about believing that this pre-Champions League stage might offer more opportunities for the underdogs.
Of course that Leicester feels the impact of Mahrez’s absence, but still, they have an attack capable of taking advantage and scoring goals.
Naturally, I believe that they will also be able to score here, and I think this bet has a lot of value.
