Manchester City and Leicester City face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at the City of Manchester Stadium. This is a very big game for both teams as both teams expect to be near the top of the standings when the season is over.
Anything less than winning the Premier League this season will be disappointing. Manchester City’s first game of the season was against the Wolves and they didn’t have any issues against a defense that at times can be pesky. Kevin De Bruyne opened up the scoring in the 20th minute and they added two goals. Manchester City did give up a goal in the 78th minute. Manchester City had 66 percent of the possession in that game and they will look to dominate the time of possession again in this game. Manchester City did have a midweek game in the EPL Tournament against Bournemouth, a game they were able to win 2-1. That game was played with a skeleton crew.
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who have won each of their first two games inside the Premier League and anything less than finishing in the top eight would be a big disappointment. Leicester opened up the season against West Brom, a game they won 3-0. In the second game it was much of the same against Burnley, a game they won 4-2. In that game, Leicester actually gave up the first goal, but once they started scoring, the floodgates opened. Leicester had 68 percent of the possession with six shots on goal. Leicester did play a midweek game against Arsenal in the EFL Cup, a game they lost but the starters didn’t play in that game.
