Manchester City at Leicester City

Leicester City (DDLWW) and Manchester City (LLWWD) will meet on Saturday, February 22nd for an English Premier League match at the King Power Stadium. The match is scheduled for a 12:30 PM EST start time. 

Leicester City is coming off a draw to Wolverhampton 0-0. Leicester had 59% of the possession in the match but had six fewer shots overall. Both clubs were able to put three shots on net in the shutout draw. Leicester City had 10 fouls in the match including 2 yellow cards and a red card to Hamza Choudhury. Wolves had a goal taken away by VAR in the match, a controversy that is still being talked about. Leicester’s last victory came against Brentford in a 1-0 win on January 25th in the English FA Cup. 

Manchester City lost its last match to Tottenham, 2-0 on the road. That loss makes it back-to-back defeats for City, as they also were losers against United on the 29th of January. In the loss to Tottenham, City had 19 shots (16 more than Tottenham) and 6 shots on target. City had 67% of possession but just were not able to put the ball in the net. In the 60th minute, Oleksandr Zinchenko was given a red card, which Tottenham took advantage of and scored two goals afterward. 

The last match between these two teams came on December 21st of 2019 in which Man City was victorious at home, 3-1. Manchester City has now won the last two meetings between these two clubs, as the last victory for Leicester over City came on December 26th of 2018. 

This should be a great match between two clubs that are 2nd and 3rd in the English Premier League table. I think both teams should find the back of the net in this one, and I think this could be a high scoring affair between two teams that are frustrated on the offensive side. I will take the over 3.0 goals in this match.
