This one could be a nail in the coffin for Leicester manager Nigel Pearson as his side face the reigning Champions Manchester City. The Champions will be without the briliant Sergio Aguero who limped off injured last weekend but City went to Italy and beat Roma 2-0 in a must win game. Samir Nasri was brilliant for the sky blues in Italy and has been having a terrific season. With Aguero out even more responsability will fall on teh frenchman and he has stepped up to the plate. Jovetich and Dzeko will get the chance to work on a partnership in Aguero's absence but Manchester City have an abundance of talent and will come to the King Power stadium looking for the win.
Leicester City have not won in ten and have fallen deep into the relegation zone and are bottom of the table. There is yet to be a manager sacking in the Premier League but Nigel Pearson has to be feeling the heat at this stage. Simply put the foxes must start to win games, home games are going to be vital for Leicester if they are to survive. This game though is not going to determine whether Leicester survive or not, games against the top side will not be where Leicester are expected to pick up their points but this could very well be looked at as a shot to nothing. Goals have been the problems for Leicester although they have managed to score in their last three but they have still lost all of those games.
Hard to see anythng but a Manchester City win here , Leicester though have made a game of it their last three and were quiet unlucky against Liverpool. But for the sending off the Foxes easily could have gotten something from that game. There will be a passionate crowd present in the King Power stadium the question is can Leicester give the home crowd something to cheer for. Tough on e here but I think City's quality will tell in the end. Taking Manchester City to win and both teams to score is the bet here at 17/10.
