Manchester City vs Leicester Match Preview
Four points separate the two sides going into Saturday’s fixture. Both teams have impressed this season but City have lacked their characteristic consistency.
They’ve scored more than Leicester thus far but also conceded eight more goals, thanks to defensive injuries and dis-organised performances.
In midweek, Manchester City beat Oxford United away in the Carabao Cup and they’ve won their last three consecutive games. Before that a galling home loss to cross-town rivals, Manchester United, saw Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial pick apart some of the holes in Pep’s troubled defence.
Leicester have had a fantastic season so far. They overcame Everton in mid-week to progress in the league cup but were frustrated in the previous fixture, a 1-1 home draw to struggling Norwich.
At this stage Manchester City have a lot of ground to make up if they want to retain their title. Liverpool are 14 points ahead of them, which is a huge gap at this stage of the season. It’s not unthinkable that City could close that gap, but they’ll have to start doing so soon.
As a result, this fixture is a very important one. A win for City might keep their hopes alive, where a win for Leicester could see them take on the mantle of being Liverpool’s real challengers.
