In the English Premier League, Manchester City are set to host Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City enter this match having beaten Arsenal 3-0 away from home in their previous outing. It was a convincing win for Manchester City as the team controlled 58% of the possession and had 14 shots. Kevin De Bruyne was the star performer for Manchester City as the midfielder scored twice. Raheem Sterling also played well as the English player scored the second goal of the game. Despite their position on the ladder, Manchester City have played well this season and have looked extremely dangerous going forward. This is expected to be a challenge for Manchester City but the Sky Blues will be confident in their ability to win at home.
On the other side of the coin, Leicester City will enter this match with lots of pressure since a loss will significantly hamper their Premier League title chances. Leicester City dropped points in their previous outing as they only managed a 1-1 draw against Norwich City. It was a disappointing result for the Foxes as they were the dominant side but failed to win. Leicester City controlled 57% of the possession and the team had 18 shots but it wasn’t enough to allow the team to win. It has been an outstanding season for Leicester City but this is expected to be a challenging outing since the Etihad Stadium is a very tough place to visit.
Leicester City and Manchester City last played each other in May. The match was played at the Etihad Stadium with Manchester City winning 1-0. It was a close match with Vincent Kompany scoring the winning goal for Manchester City.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. The Sky Blues are the stronger side and they have the advantage of playing at home. I am expecting Leicester City to cause some problems but I don’t see them having enough to get a result from this fixture.
