Match: Manchester City – Leicester Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: February 6, Saturay, 2016
Start time: 12:45 GMT
Manchester City hosts the leader in the standings of the Premier League Leicester in a meeting of the 25th round of the “Premiership”. The match is Saturday, Feb. 6, from 12:45 GMT at ‘Etihad Stadium’.
Manchester City is in perfect shape in 2016. “The Citizens’ lost points against West Ham and Evrtan but beat Watford, Crystal Palace and Sunderland, Arsenal which shifted from the second position in the ranking and are just three behind his upcoming opponent. The good news for the team is that the injured Sergio Aguero in the past and arzhetiskiyat striker who brought success this week against “The black cats” was unstoppable for opposing defenses.
Aleksandar Kolarov has overcome his injury and is likely to start as a starter. Mangala, de Bruyne, Kompany, Delph and nd Nasri remain injured and missed games while Jesus Navas until the last will be doubtful for the clash with “The Foxes”.
Leicester performed admirably in the first half of the 2015/16 season. “The Foxes” were top of the table on Boxing Day, when many people predicted that the team will not withstand the busy schedule in January. Claudio Ranieri’s team has shown perfect shape and in compressed cycle of matches with the recent victories over Stoke City and Liverpool occupy the first place.
At “Etihad” Leicester will try to record their eighth away win this season. Jamie Vardy showed his class in the last two matches, having scored against Stoke and scored twice to Liverpool. England international was able to decide the match against “citizens”, but his teammates have to perform very well in defense
Matthew James missed the game after not in optimum condition and Jeffrey Shlup is injured. Claudio Ranieri has no other worries about the squad before the trip to Manchester.
All eyes will be focused on “Etihad” after two of the contenders for the title are found in the derby of the Premier League. I think Lester is very difficult to win this game because their team is very strong at home. Kun Aguero seems unstoppable at the moment and expect to lead his team to victory that will help them climb to the top position in the standings.
