10/02/2018 Kick Off:  5:30 pm Etihad Stadium V Predicted Score:2 - 1

Away Leicester City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Jamie Vardy to try an unsettle City’s back line of Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi early. The Leicester hitman is 2/1 to score anytime in the match. Vardy has twelve league goals so far this season and has netted on four occasions against the Blues.

2 We fancy:

City to maintain their almost perfect home form but to win in a tight game by one goal. Man City to win by one goal is 3/1 and the Blues have won 13 games in all competitions by a solitary goal.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 4-2 win for Man City is 33/1. Both the Blues and the Foxes have won with this scoreline inside the last ten meetings between them. Leicester won 4-2 at the King Power Stadium last season while City won an FA Cup tie back in 2011 4-2 at home.

Manchester City vs Leicester City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sergio Aguero’s goals will be needed to keep Manchester City on course for the title as injuries threaten to bite

Pep Guardiola has asked for more protection for his players after a recent spate of over the top tackles, Leicester will be looking to get stuck in early and unsettle the league leaders.

Man City are 1/4 to win, the Blues are unbeaten at home in the league and have been held just once in their first home game of the season against Everton. They also remain unbeaten at home in all competitions so far this season.

Leicester is 12/1 and their away form has been poor, winning just three times on their travels, drawing five times and losing the same amount of games.

The draw is 6/1, the Blues have won the last two premier league meetings between the sides and have won five of the last eleven. Leicester have beaten City four times in the last eleven while there have been just two draws in that time frame.

Sergio Aguero is 5/2 to open the scoring, while Kevin De Bruyne is a decent 13/2 to score the first goal of the game.

Kelechi Inheancho is 14/1 to score the first goal against his old side and is 7/2 to net anytime during the game.

Predicted Score: Manchester City 2 - 1 Leicester City
