Manchester City – Leicester City
Manchester City hosts Leicester City in a match from the 27th round of the English Premier League. The game is going to be played at Saturday evening at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
Manchester City are convincing leaders in the Premier League and №1 contenders for the title. They have 13 points advantage in front of Manchester United and just one loss since the start of the season – against Liverpool. It would be a massive surprise, if Manchester City don’t win the title in the end of the season.
Not just because of their advantage in front of United, but also because of their overall quality. Right now City are playing the best football in England and it’s very hard to beat them. Only Liverpool managed to do it so far. If the Citizens continue to perform like this, they won’t have problems to win the gold medals.
Although in their last match City lost two points. They made a 1-1 draw during the draw with Burnley. The leaders made some incredible misses in the match, before conceding a late equalizing goal. Now they will try to fix the mistake and win against Leicester.
Leicester City are 8th in the Premier League standings with 35 points won so far. They have a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 9 defeats. In their last five matches the Foxes won twice, made two draws and lost just once – against Everton. In their last game Claude Puel’s boys shared the points with Swansea for a 1-1 draw.
Although Leicester are not an easy opposition, we shall expect to see Manchester City prevailing in this one. The Citizens have to redeem themselves after the draw against Burnley and this is a perfect opportunity for this. City are favourites for the title, but they still have some work to do.
