Football Predictions

Manchester City will be hosting Leicester City at the Etihad hoping to make it ten wins out of ten in all competition on Saturday.

The Citizens are entering the game on the back of a morale boosting 3-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League as they hope to reduce the points between them and leaders Arsenal to two points before the Gunners take on West Ham on Sunday. 

Dean Smith will be leading Leicester City for the first time this Saturday after replacing Brendan Rodgers as their new manager. They are second from bottom and know that anything less than a win will be detrimental for their survival chances.

H2H / Stats 

Leicester City last beat Manchester City in the 2020/21 season when Jamie Vardy bagged a hat-trick but its been the latter who has had the last say in recent meetings.

Manchester City wins: 65, Draws: 29 and Leicester wins: 32

Last Five Meetings:

26 Dec 2021 – Manchester City 6-3 Leicester City – Premier League

11 Sep 2021 – Leicester City 0-1 Manchester City – Premier League

07 Aug 2021 – Leicester City 1-0 Manchester City – Community Shield

03 Apr 2021 – Leicester City 0-2 Manchester City – Premier League

Team news 

With a Champions League tie against Bayern Munich coming next week, Guardiola is expected to rotate his players. The good news is most of his first team players are fit and rearing to go apart from Phil Foden who is still an absentee after going an operation.

For Leicester, Smith is expected to tinker with the team as he finds the perfect combination to withhold City’s pressure at the Etihad.  The visitors will have Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall available from suspension and Youri Tielemans could return in a major boost for Smith..

Probable Line ups

Man City XI: Ederson, Akanji, Dias, Ake, Stones, Rodri, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish, Haaland

Leicester City XI: Ward, Amartey, Castagne,Evans, Vestergaard, Dewsbury-Hall, Madisson, Ndidi, Perez, Iheanacho, Barnes

Verdict 

Manchester City come into this game as clear favourites after Arsenal gave them a chance to believe again last weekend. They know that a win will put pressure on the Mikel Arteta side who play on Sunday and their record against their Saturday opponents is an impressive one

Verdict: Manchester City win

Anytime goal scorers  

Erling Haaland

Haaland, he has bagged 17 goals in 11 Premier League appearances for Man City, which already places him joint-second behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (18 in 1996/97) for most strikes by a Norwegian player in a single campaign.With 30 league goals to his name already, there is no reason why he shouldn’t this tally on Saturday.

Jack Grealish

The Englishman has had a massive improvement this season under Pep Guardiola. He has made the left wing his position and has recently been chipping in with goals. With the supply around him, he would like to increase his tally against the Foxes who are not at their best at the moment.
