Manchester City v Leicester Premier League Preview, 10th February 5.30pm
The Citizens can’t seem to get themselves going away from home at the moment after a draw with Burnley at Turf Moor on the weekend. Still, they are running in pretty hot form at the Etihad though. Leicester have enjoyed a pretty successful 2018 in the Premier League, but can they go and get something out of this tough away game?
Manchester City v Leicester Betting Odds*
Man City 1/5, Draw 11/2, Leicester 12/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:52 a.m.)
Manchester City News and Form
Manchester City failed to win for the third time in a row away from home in the Premier League as they could only manage a draw at Turf Moor against Burnley. However, their home form is fantastic as they have posted a W12 D1 L0 at the Etihad this season and they are on a twelve-match winning streak there. The Citizens have scored at least three goals in each of their last five home games now and you are looking at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:52 a.m.) at bet365 for this fixture to get up over 3.5 goals. Sergio Aguero heads up the first goalscorer market for the fixture and is bang in form at the moment, with seven goals in his last four home Premier League games. City have averaged 3.5 goals per game at home this season in the top flight. Even though the Citizens have only shipped the nine goals at the Etihad, they have conceded in six of their last eight home games, so that suggests that the Foxes could get something on the board and both teams to score in the game probably isn’t a bad shout. Going back to the scoring power of City, they have scored at least two goals in their last twelve Premier League home games.
Leicester News and Form
Leicester are winless in their last four away games in the top flight with a poor D1 L3 record, which isn’t the kind of thing you want behind you going to the Etihad. The point in that sequence was in a 0-0 draw out at Stamford Bridge back in the middle of January which really they should have won. Their last three defeats away from the King Power in the league have all been by a 2-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market a Man City 2-1 option is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:52 a.m.). Leicester have averaged 1.5 goals per game away from home this season so they have done well in front of goal and could make an impression. The half time draw is worth a shout as they have been drawing at the break in nine of their thirteen away games. 62% of Leicester’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so this should turn out to be a high scoring affair and the Foxes have collected a clean sheet in only 15% of their away games. Leicester do look vulnerable at the back, but they pose a good threat through quick counter attacks. The Foxes have scored in 77% of their road games this season.
Manchester City v Leicester Head to Head
Mani City were 2-0 winners out at the King Power earlier in the season and then the two played out a thrilling 1-1 draw in an EFL Cup meeting there as well which City won on penalties. So City are unbeaten in three against the Foxes now but in the last five Premier League meetings, City are only W2 D1 L2 against Leicester. On home soil, though they have won three of their last four against the Foxes (L1). Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings in all competitions.
Who will win – Manchester City v Leicester Predictions
The Foxes haven’t exactly been a watertight side so they will likely be exposed at the Etihad. The home form of Manchester City has been sublime so it is just worth backing the home side to get the win, but well worth covering with both teams to score in the fixture.
