Manchester City are just two steps away from defending their PL title. They are looking to jump above the first of two obstacles on Monday evening when Leicester City come to visit Etihad Stadium in the last fixture of 37th round.
The ‘Cityzens’ are obviously massive favorites to confirm the tag and pick up an all-important three-pointer in the last game of the season on the home patch. They won 12 on the trot in the league conceding just three goals in the process. The foxes will thus have an extremely tough task to create in the final third past the team which allowed only 22 goals in 36 league ties so far in the campaign.
Meanwhile, the ‘Foxes’ have won just one of their previous four league matches against City (W1, L3). Furthermore, three of those matches produced over 2.5 match goals. We’ll have to wait and see what Brendan Rogers has in plan for the title chasers.
Manchester City vs Leicester City: Head-to-head
The ‘Foxes’ are one of just four teams which managed to beat Manchester City this season. Leicester City claimed a shocking 2-1 victory over the Cityzens when teams met each other on the Boxing Day at King Power Stadium.
Leicester also held Man City to a 1-1 draw in the League Cup clash in December last year, but the Cityzens advanced on penalties. Additionally, each of past four head to head ties between these two saw goals scored at both ends.
Manchester City vs Leicester City: Prediction 2-0
For the defending champions to give Liverpool a chase for their money and the title, they will have to adequately bag goals and points on this Monday night fixture. Especially with the leaders at Etihad stadium, nothing is going to stop them from scoring on their own turf. Thus, bit.ly/2FZVGyf Home Win.
