-----------------------------------

Manchester City: The pressure is on ( Recent Form: W L W W W )

For Manchester City, the duel with Leicester City is extremely important. The Citizens are already four points behind Leicester City, which is in second place, and league-leader Liverpool is already fourteen points ahead of the Pep Guardiola team. Liverpool is not taking action this weekend and so Manchester City can narrow the gap. Then there has to be won from Leicester City and that is difficult for The Citizens. Although Manchester City won five of the last six home games against Leicester City, this Leicester cannot be compared with the Leicester of recent years. In the last six league games, Manchester City lost no fewer than three points. Liverpool (3-1) and Manchester United (1-2) managed to beat Manchester City in recent weeks, while The Citizens did not go further than a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United three weeks ago. Last weekend, Manchester City won convincingly in the Premier League of Arsenal: 0-3. On Wednesday evening there was a 1-3 win over Oxford United in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup. Sergio Agüero has been training with the group at Manchester City since this week, but it is still doubtful whether the Argentinian will be fit for the duel with Leicester. Mikel Arteta was appointed as the new Arsenal trainer on Friday afternoon and therefore quits his position as Guardiola assistant.

 

Leicester City: Nothing to lose ( Recent Form: W W W D D )

Leicester City has nothing to lose against Manchester City on Saturday night. The team of Brendan Rodgers is already four points ahead of Manchester City and the pressure is clearly not with Leicester. The good performance of The Foxes focuses on Champions League qualification and does not necessarily have to beat Manchester City to narrow the gap with Liverpool. Rodgers is so realistic that he realizes that with this team he can never compete for 38 games for the championship and if Rodgers qualifies for the Champions League with Leicester, he has already done great. At Leicester City they have been unbeaten for eleven games in a row and The Foxes would like to continue that series against Manchester City. In that series of eleven games, Leicester City took points against Arsenal (2-0 win) and Everton (2-1 win). So it shows that this Leicester City has a lot of quality. Leicester City again played a match against Everton this week, this time in the Carabao Cup at Goodison Park, and after penalties, qualified for the semi-finals of the cup tournament. Aston Villa will be the opponent in this next month. For the cracker against Manchester City, Rodgers has to do without Matthew James, who midfielder already trains with Leicester but is not yet fit enough to play.

 

THE BETTING VERDICT:

After all, Manchester City is ranked lower than Leicester City and yet The Citizens are the top favorite for this game. Leicester City only lost against Manchester United (1-0) and Liverpool (2-1) this season and showed in both games that it is hard to beat. I think Manchester City will also have a hard time with the Rodgers formation and therefore go for the Leicester City +1.5.

 

Manchester City - Leicester City

Pick: Leicester City +1.5
