Leicester City vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

First takes on third in the Premier League standings after a two-week international break. Manchester City builds their title win against third-placed Leicester City. The match schedules for Saturday at King Power Stadium, with kickoff at 7:30 pm.

Manchester City heads into the match after winning four in a row in all competitions and remains on course for a quadruple. On the other hand, Leicester City has won three in a spin but gets battle from multiple fronts.

Pep Guardiola could make history in English football with only 16 games standing between him. The Citizens will attempt to clean sweep both domestic and European honors this season’s campaign.

What makes the race even interesting is that City does not have to win all games to pick up the honors. It is given that they have 1 14 point gap on second-placed Manchester United. Come to the end of the week, Leicester City could be their biggest threat, with the Foxes only one point behind Manchester United.

Winning the title might have slipped Brendan Rodger’s mind after a series of inconsistent results lauded with injury plague. However, securing a top finish remains a significant hassle for him in the top four race.

The Foxes lost out a top-four finish last season as they lost to Manchester United on the final day to get a European spot. However, the side has a semi-finals clash with Southampton in the FA Cup.
