Manchester City – Leicester City (Premier League)

Manchester City and Leicester City face each other on Saturday, at the Etihad Stadium, for the 27th round of the Premier League game. Manchester City come here after seeing their lead at the top of the Premier League being cut to 13 points last weekend, thanks to a 1-1 draw away to Burnley. Leicester City, on their turn, have seen better days and come here at the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Swansea City, and their aim for the rest of the season is now the 7th place in the Premier League table.

Manchester City are in 1st place with 69 points, from 22 victories, 3 draws and 1 defeat, with 74 goals scored and 19 goals conceded. Manchester City was stopped by Burnley in the previous round, and Kevin De Bruyne has revealed the leaders are running on empty at the moment. Still, the Citizens remain remain one of the best football teams in Europe. Proof of that is their insane home record for the Premier League, with 12 victories in 13 matches, tying the other one, with 45 goals scored and only 9 conceded in the process.

City scored in all those 13 home matches and they have only scored less than 2 goals once. Adding to this, Pep Guardiola’s men have kept 5 clean sheets, and won all the last 12 Premier League home matches. Manchester City have the strongest attack in the Premier League, and the second best defense, and are expected to keep benefiting possession in the opposition’s midfield and the organized attacks. De Bruyne is key player in the organization of the offensive process, and the player with more assists (11) in the Premier League. Aguero is their offensive reference and the 3rd top scorer in the league, with 17 goals scored.

In their last 5 official matches, Manchester City has a record of 4 victories and 1 draw. This sequence of results started with a 3-1 victory over Newcastle. This result was followed by a 2-3 victory against Bristol City, for the EFL Cup, a 0-2 victory over Cardiff City, for the FA Cup, a 3-0 victory against West Bromwich, and in their last match, a 1-1 draw against Burnley. Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus, Fabian Delph and Leroy Sané are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Ederson – Walker, Kompany, Otamendi and Zinchenko – Fernandinho, Bruyne and Gundogan – Silva, Aguero and Sterling.

premier-leagueLeicester City, on their turn, are in 8th place with 35 points, from 9 victories, 8 draws and 9 defeats, with 38 goals scored and 35 goals conceded. After the defeat against Everton, in the penultimate round, the Foxes failed to get back to winning ways in the previous round, drawing at home against Swansea City. Leicester will aim to finish seventh this season and they are only one point behind current occupants, Burnley.

The team have only won 2 of their last 9 Premier League matches, and are showing a very poor momentum away from home, having only won 3 of the last 13 Premier League away matches, with 19 goals scored and 20 goals conceded. The Foxes are also winless in their last 4 away matches in the competition, losing 3 of them, with just 3 goals scored and 6 conceded. Against a team with such a dominant football like City, Leicester will adopt a more defensive strategy and will look to hurt their opponents in counter-attacks.

In their last 5 official matches, Leicester City has a record of 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 2-0 victory against Fleetwood Town, for the FA Cup. This result was followed by a 2-0 victory against Watford, a 1-5 victory against Peterborough United, for the FA Cup, a 2-1 defeat against Everton, and in their last match, a 1-1 draw against Swansea City. Wes Morgan is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Schmeichel – Simpson, Dragovic, Maguire and Fuchs – Ndidi, Iborra, Albreighton and Diabaté – Okazaki – Vardy.

Manchester City have won 4 of their last 8 direct clashes, tying 2 and losing the remaining 2.

Manchester City are very well organized and are clear favorites to get the 3 points. Still, Leicester City are strong in counter-attacks and they might a few serious scoring chances. City have won 12 of 13 Premier League home matches this season, averaging 3.5 goals per game at the Etihad. Even though they are not at peak physical condition, they are expected to win here.
