Leicester v Manchester City Premier League, 18th November 3.00pm
The Foxes have been starting to put things together in the Premier League since their chance of manager and they are now five games unbeaten and crawling their way up the table. This would be a huge three points if they could topple the Champions elect. Manchester City have just kept rolling on and on and their powerful attack will be expected to break through Leicester’s defence which has struggled for clean sheets this term. Man City are 3/10 to win at bet365, with the draw at 17/4 and Leicester at 7/2.
Leicester v Manchester City Betting Tips
The Foxes have recovered from their poor start to the season to put a five match unbeaten streak of form together in the top flight (W2 D3). Leicester have lost just one of their last seven games in the Premier League and the change of manager seems to have done them the power of good. They have scored exactly two goals in each of their last three Premier League games and there should be goals in this one. Over 3.5 goals at bet365 isn’t a bad looking option at 11/10. Leicester rolled out a thrilling 4-2 home win over Manchester City last season and they have actually gone W2 D1 L1 in their last four top flight games against the Citizens. They will probably give the visitors a good run for their money. At the King Power this season Leicester are W2 D1 L2 in the league.
Last Six Premier League Head to Head
Man City 2 – 1 Leicester
Leicester 4 – 2 Man City
Man City 1 – 3 Leicester
Leicester 0 – 0 Man City
Man City 2 – 0 Leicester
Leicester 0 – 1 Man City
Both teams to score at bet365 returns a price of 3/4 for the game and that has happened in each of the last three meetings so there’s a little trend going. In the anytime goalscorer market, their shortest priced option is Jamie Vardy at a price of 2/1. He netted a hattrick in this corresponding fixture last season. Leicester have averaged 1.6 goals per game at the King Power this season and are actually own one point better off than they were at this stage last season. Both of their league home wins this term have been by a 2-0 scoreline, but that’s going to be a long shot for this one against the Champions elect. Leicester have not conceded a goal at home in the last fifteen minutes of any match this season but they have only opened the scoring in just two of their five home matches so far. The Foxes are W1 D2 L3 in their previous six home games against the Citizens in the Premiership. Can they pull off a shock result on the weekend?
Current League Form (most recent last)
Man City WWWWWW
Manchester City have continued their stunning form. They have won the last nine Premier League games now and there has been no sign of them slowing up either in front of goal. They have scored at least three goals in each of their last four games played now in the top flight, but they have been signs that they are loosening up at the back just a little bit. They have only taken the one clean sheet in their last four matches. Out on the road, they have been perfect this season with five wins from five and in those games, they have netted fourteen goals at an average of 2.8 per game. That’s 73% of their away games in the Premier League this season having gone over 2.5 goals and 55% have gone over 3.5 goals. Only twice this season have City have failed to produce more than one goal in a league game.
Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, where do your start in the goalscorer markets? All of them have been in tremendous form this season and it is Aguero and Jesus who are the joint 5/2 bet365 first goalscorer favourites for the game. In the anytime goalscorer market there is a price of 11/8 on Sane and Sterling to net. Of the away goals this season that they have conceded on the road (just three of them) two of them were inside the first fifteen minutes of matches and Pep Guardiola’s men have scored first in all but one of their five away games this season and they haven’t been behind at the break in any of them. Three of their five away wins have been by just the one goal this season and a Man City to win by a one goal margin at bet365 is a price of 11/4.
Who will win – Leicester v Manchester City Predictions
Man City to win: There are still cracks there in the Leicester back line and that should be enough for the Citizens to pick up the three points. There’s a strong probability of goals at both ends though so look over 2.5 goals plus an away win.
