Reason for Manchester City vs Leicester Predictions
City is really starting to go through the gears and have won their previous eight league matches, keeping clean sheets in five of them. They are top of the table, three points ahead of Liverpool and six clear of Chelsea. Both those rivals dropped points at the weekend, and Liverpool’s Boxing Day match has been postponed. Manchester City’s eight-match winning run in the Premier League has proved once more that they are one of the most forward-thinking sides English football has seen. Guardiola is well into his sixth season in charge, but the same attack-minded philosophy remains at the Etihad. Despite not having a recognized No 9, in the past eight games, City has scored 24 goals, with 11 of those coming in the two matches against Leeds and Newcastle. One of the most impressive things about Manchester City is how ruthless they can be even when the game is won. Phil Foden shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Leicester could be forgiven for being fearful of heading to the Etihad, but their recent record against the champions gives them some hope. They beat Guardiola’s side in the Community Shield in August and have recorded famous 5-2 and 3-1 victories at the Etihad in recent seasons. They will have also noted how a Leicester side hit by illness and injuries fell away in the second half of their EFL Cup quarter-final defeat by Liverpool. Leicester was 3-1 ahead at halftime, but Liverpool dominated the second half, and City are likely to do the same with the amount of ball they have. Vardy has historically been a tormentor of big clubs and relishes playing against the best sides. He scored twice in the first 13 minutes at Anfield to give the Foxes a great start. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Patson Daka enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
Manchester City is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 3.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
