Man City vs Leicester
SAT 27th SEP 2020 – KO 16:30pm
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Sunday afternoon, Manchester City host Leicester at the Etihad Stadium, in what could potentially be a fascinating Premier League clash.
The Citizens opened their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 win at Wolves on Monday, with Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus getting on the scoresheet. The win means that
Pep Guardiola’s team has now won their last six top-flight matches while scoring at least two goals in each of the victories. At the other end of the pitch, the home team have also kept clean sheets in four of their last six top-flight games.
City have returned to their formidable home form of late, as the Citizens have won ten of their last 11 league games at the Etihad Stadium. They have been outstanding in defence and attack on home soil, scoring at least two goals in their 11 unbeaten matches, having kept clean sheets six of their last seven home games in the top-flight.
The Foxes have started the campaign finely, beating West Brom 3-0 on the opening weekend before recording a 4-2 home win over Burnley in their last league outing. The results were enough to ensure that Brendan Rodgers team heads into this weekend as Premier League leaders. The early season results were needed, as the Foxes lost their last two of last season to fall out of the Champions League spots.
The visitors have won just one of their previous nine away games in the top-flight. The win at West Brom ended an eight-game winless league run on the road for the visitors.
Manchester City are without Sergio Aguero, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva are all expected to be ruled out through injury. Ilkay Gundogan will miss out through illness. Aymeric Laporte and Eric Garcia are also both injury doubts.
Leicester are without full-back Ricardo Pereira and centre-back Filip Benkovic due to injury.
