Soccer Prediction Manchester City – Leicester 10.02.2018

Manchester City: All this suggests that team led by manager Guardiola should routinely dispatch the guests from Leicester, especially as it has fantastic 15-game winning streak at its stadium. However, in previous round the City won just one point from away match with very tough Burnley, while it suffered its first defeat this season at the Anfield by Liverpool, which defeated them by 4-3 after a great match.

However, occasional mishaps haven’t had much impact on the Citizens situation in the table as they still have big 13 points more than 2nd-placed Manchester United, while it is soon face Arsenal in the final of League Cup. Besides, next week Manchester City plays the 1st round of 16 leg of the Champions League with Basel, and Guardiola must take care to adequately distribute his forces, especially as on the list of injured players are still defenders Stones and Mendy, midfielders D. Silva and Delph, and forwards Sane and Jesus.

Probable lineups Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Danilo – Fernandinho – B. Silva, de Bruyne, Gundogan, Sterling – Aguero

Leicester: The guests from Leicester too played draw in their last league match when they faced 17th-placed Swansea at home, while before that they lost away to Everton 2-1. Since they won two and drew one match before that the Foxes still occupy place in the upper part of table, or more precisely the eight one and have even four points more than 9th-placed Bournemouth.

Right because of that they can face currently leading team of the Premier League without any pressure, as they simply have nothing to lose at the Eithad, while they secretly hope to create problems to the favoured Citizens from fast counter-attacks. Manager Puel still cannot count on his best player Mahrez, who still boycotts trainings as his transfer to no other team than Manchester City has failed, while due to injuries are out of action only stoppers Morgan and Huth.

Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – Simpson, Dragovic, Maguire, Chillwell – Albrighton, Ndidi, Iborra, Gray – Okazaki – Vardy

Manchester City – Leicester Soccer Prediction of Today

Of course the leading Citizens are regarded as absolute favourites to win this home match with 8th-placed Leicester, but at the same time we believe that the guests led by fleet-footed Vardy can definitely create problems for goalkeeper Ederson, and consequently we have decided to play here on goals on both sides.

Prediction Today: both teams to score
Odds: 1.87
