The Premier League will return this weekend following the hiatus occasioned by the international break. And one of the stand out fixtures sees Manchester City make a trip to Leicester in a battle of the in-form teams.
This week Manchester City announced that striker, Sergio Aguero, will be leaving the Etihad at the end of the season, but that would be the last thing on their minds as they seek to consolidate their position on the Premier League log. This fixture has the trappings of a classic and we have done our research. Thus we present our betting tip for what promises to be an explosive encounter.
Leicester City had heads turning with a string of impressive results before the international break. The foxes recorded three wins on the bounce, with Kelechi Iheanacho, the chief protagonist having rediscovered the form he showed as a precocious young talent at Manchester City.
Leicester Unlike City, are not in the running for the title but they can play a big role in where the title goes at the end of the season. They defeated Sheffield United and Brighton in the league before eliminating Manchester United from the FA Cup with a 3-1 mauling to get to the last four.
They are not short on confidence and their dominant display against the visitors when both sides met earlier in the season will serve as a motivation to complete a league double over their opponents.
Manchester are still firmly in the running for an unprecedented quadruple in the history of the club. They are top of the Premier League table having established a 14 point gap to keep daylight between them and the chasing pack. On the continent, they remain one of the favourites to lift the Champions League trophy along with current champions Bayern Munich. The Citizens have booked their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and they have a date with Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup final later in the year.
Pep Guardiola and his men are chasing a clean sweep of domestic and continental titles and they are only a few games away. The trip to Leicester will provide the Citizens with another opportunity to add to their points tally in the league, but it will not be a walk in the park for the former Champions.
Although the visitors won four games in a row before the break for international football, Leicester are dangerous opponents who can latch on to mistakes of the opponents to create a chance for themselves.
Pep Guardiola will have a full complement of players to choose from for this game. And whichever side he selects they will be wary of the threat the Foxes pose on the counter especially with Iheanacho and Vardy up front.
Ilkay Gundogan continued his goalscoring form with Germany and he is expected to start along with Kevin Debruyne in City’s midfield to orchestrate play from there.
The home side will be buzzing going into the game given their recent run of results and the form of Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho. While it may be difficult to call an outright winner in this game, the goals market seems to be promising because both sides have goals in them.
