League leaders, Manchester City will host Leicester City as they look to close out the Premier League title. The fans will be storming into the Etihad Stadium as this will be the last time Manchester City will be playing at home this season.

Manchester City have looked very professional over the past few weeks as they have been scoring and closing out games very well. In their last outing, Manchester City played against Burnley whom they beat 1-0 away from home. It was a good performance by the Sky Blues as the team controlled 70% of the ball and has 25 shots. Sergio Aguero scored the goal for Manchester City. The defence was very impressive for Manchester City as they prevented their opponents from taking any shots on target. Manchester City look very strong and the team will be very confident as they enter this match.

On the other side of the coin, Leicester City had a good win in the previous round as they beat Arsenal at home. Jamie Vardy was very good for the Foxes as the English striker scored 2 goals. The Foxes had 68% of the ball and dominated the match as they defeated a very strong Arsenal team. Leicester will be confident as they enter this match as they defeated Manchester City earlier in the season. That being said, playing Manchester City away from home is much tougher than at the King Power Stadium.

As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. The Sky Blues look very determined as they close in on winning the Premier League. Leicester City are safe from relegation and it is tough to see the visitors turning up to the Etihad with the intensity required to defeat the Sky Blues.

Pick:
Manchester City
