Leicester v Man City

It’s third against second in the early evening Premier League kick-off on Saturday, with Leicester hosting Man City.

888sport pre-match odds: Leicester 17/5, Draw 3/1, Man City 3/4

This tale of two cities promises to be an entertaining, exciting match with the two teams boasting some of the league’s most prolific goalscorers, with Jamie Vardy up to 16 and Sergio Aguero on 16.

With both sides over 20 points behind champions elect Liverpool but 10 points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham, there’s not a great deal of jeopardy in this fixture with Champions League qualification likely secured for both teams.

Leicester will likely look to turn their indifferent form around and take a big scalp here as they look to consolidate their place in the top three, so expect the best available XI, while Pep Guardiola will have one eye on next week’s season-defining - arguably tenure-defining - Champions League clash with Real Madrid, so key men such as Aymeric Laporte and Sergio Aguero could find themselves sidelined.

Leicester played out a fairly forgettable goalless draw with Wolves last Friday but had a marginal VAR call to thank for their point, while Man City professionally swept aside West Ham in midweek with a second-gear 2-0 win. 

Both sides kept clean sheets on those occasions but have otherwise looked vulnerable defensively, as evidenced by Leicester keeping just two clean sheets from their last 11 Premier League games, and Man City recently drawing 2-2 with Crystal Palace, losing 0-1 to Manchester United and 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur.

Man City have won four of the last six meetings with Leicester, but only kept a clean sheet in one of those victories. We recommend backing City to get another win here, but struggle to keep the Foxes out.

Ndidi injury blow for Leicester ahead of Manchester City clash

Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will not be ready for their home game against Manchester City on Saturday.

Ndidi is struggling with a knee problem – the same one which required surgery in early January – while fellow midfielder Hamza Choudhury is suspended.

Recent loan signing Ryan Bennett and Matty James will both come into the reckoning, but Nampalys Mendy (knee) is still out.

Raheem Sterling will play no part for Manchester City.

The England winger is making good progress following a hamstring strain and could return to contention for next week’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

David Silva is also out after being forced out of the midweek win against West Ham with a slight knee problem but Oleksandr Zinchenko is available after suspension.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Evans, Chilwell, Pereira, Soyuncu, Barnes, Tielemans, Perez, Maddison, Vardy, Morgan, Praet, Albrighton, Gray, Ward, Iheanacho, James, Bennett.

Provisional squad: Ederson, Laporte, Stones, Otamendi, Walker, Zinchenko, Mendy, De Bruyne, Foden, Rodri, B Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Aguero, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Joao Cancelo, Mahrez, Bravo.

    Leicester City 0-1 Manchester City - Match Highlights

    Date published: 2/22/2020 10:38:40 PM

    Manchester City missed a second-half penalty but still did enough to claim a 1-0 victory at Leicester City thanks to substitute Gabriel Jesus.

    The Foxes made three changes to the side which started the goalless draw with Wolves, with Christian Fuchs, Dennis Praet and former Citizens striker Kelechi Iheanacho replacing Ayoze Perez, Harvey Barnes and the suspended Hamza Choudhury.

    The visitors also made three changes, with Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan and ex-Foxes forward Riyad Mahrez preferred to Nicolas Otamendi, David Silva and Gabriel Jesus.

    It was the men from Manchester who enjoyed the majority of the early possession, but it was the hosts who nearly broke the deadlock as Jamie Vardy sprinted clear, only to see his effort beat Ederson and cannon away to safety off the foot of a post.

    The Citizens responded with Kevin de Bruyne forcing a save from Kasper Schmeichel with a drive from distance, before the keeper denied Gundogan and then saw a deflected Benjamin Mendy shot drop narrowly wide.

    Nine minutes before half-time, Ederson was forced to get away smartly to his right to push away a curling free-kick from James Maddison.

    In time added-on at the end of the first half Sergio Aguero had the ball in the net, but he was rightly flagged offside as he collected a De Bruyne pass.

    Barnes replaced Iheanacho at the interval and soon afterwards found space down the right flank, but his attempted ball across the face of goal was blocked at his near post by Ederson.

    At the other end Schmeichel made a fine low save to keep out a skimming right-foot drive from De Bruyne and shortly afterwards Laporte was replaced by Otamendi.

    The visitors were then awarded a penalty after a VAR check decided that Praet had handled a Gundogan drive, but Aguero failed to beat Schmeichel with the resulting spot-kick.

    The Leicester keeper denied Aguero again soon after, before Vardy screwed a left-foot volley wide at the other end.

    Aguero was replaced by Gabriel Jesus 13 minutes from time and the Brazilian made the all-important breakthrough soon after entering the fray, slotting home right-footed after being played in by Mahrez.
