Manchester City have lost two times in the previous four games, and now the team is four points behind the first position in the standings. For the Citizens lie ahead new hard challenge – this time against the tough side of Leicester. Both teams have played against each other less than ten days ago in a 1/4 Final match for Carabao Cup. The teams split one half-time, and after 1-1 in the regular time, Manchester City won the penalty shootout.
Leicester are placed in the middle of the table, and the team has ambitions for Top 8. The Foxes didn’t have a win in three consecutive games in the league and in the match on Stamford Bridge they were far from favourites. This inspired Vardy and his teammates to achieve a sensational victory with 1-0.
The Citizens don’t have the right for a new mistake, and the win in this game is mandatory. Recently, there have been talks about financial problems and a bad atmosphere in the dressing room. These rumours influence the team and especially the defence. Leicester have a high number of quality players and certainly will take advantage of the free spaces in the guests’ defence. I will back Both Teams to Score, with Manchester City 2-1 Correct Score.
