Manchester City v Leicester City Betting Preview – 06/05/19

Manchester City v Leicester City

With only two remaining fixtures for the Premier League title favourites, Manchester City face another gigantic challenge in hosting Leicester City at the Etihad. The Foxes defeated the Citizens in the last meeting between the two sides on Boxing Day, but while Leicester City are stronger through the arrival of Brendan Rodgers, Manchester City are even more difficult to play, on course for a second successive league title, and able to learn from past errors in the current campaign.

If Manchester City are able to win as expected, they will move further into their Premier League winning streak, winning a thirteenth league fixture in succession. There’s no doubting their ability to do exactly that on Monday evening, but there’s plenty of drama in facing Brendan Rodgers, who could be a spanner in the works, as he previously managed challengers Liverpool.

The Reds hoped for an upset against City in the form of defensively solid Crystal Palace, Champions League semi-finalists Tottenham Hotspur, local rivals Manchester United, and resurgent Burnley. As Pep Guardiola’s side went on to win every single one of these games, they’ll now be waiting on their old coach to finish what he couldn’t back in 2014 and get Liverpool their first top tier trophy since 1989.

Brendan Rodgers is Liverpool’s best hope of halting Manchester City to an almost confirmed title.

Predictions for Manchester City v Leicester City

We doubt that anyone will be backing against Manchester City in this game, especially after they’ve shown indisputable resolve in how they’ve bounced back and surpassed Liverpool in the hunt for the Premier League title. They’re priced at a shockingly short 1/6 to win the game, leaving Leicester City at a surprisingly large 18/1 to beat Manchester City for a second time this season. The option of a draw is left at 17/2, with it almost being as hard to imagine as the concept of The Foxes coming out on top.

Goalscorers come in many forms for Manchester City, Sergio Aguero fighting to be crowned Premier League Top Goalscorer, Raheem Sterling scoring seventeen league goals this season, and all of Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan chipping in with an additional thirty-one league goals. Bernardo Silva is having the season of his life and he looks likely to cause further damage after recently scoring a crucial goal in the derby, making him a worthwhile person to get behind at odds of 12/5 to score at any time against Leicester.

More often than not, Manchester City will manage to keep a clean sheet at home. This hasn’t been the case during home fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur, Watford, Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, Hoffenheim, Bournemouth, Manchester United, Southampton, Lyon, Newcastle United, Huddersfield Town and all other teams capable of netting away from home though, so it makes sense to back Manchester City to win & BTTS at 6/4 on Betway. Leicester have scored in their last ten away games in a row, netting an accumulative seventeen goals in the process, adding fuel to the fire that this is a strong price in what’s expected to be a lively Monday night football.
