The second in the current standings Manchester City welcomes the last team in the table Leicester. The hosts in today’s match pursue Chelsea and right now the difference is 5 points. The citizens are not in their best form, as of their last eight games they have only two victories over Stoke City and Newcastle, three draws against Hull, Chelsea and Everton and 3 losses from Arsenal, Barcelona in the Champions League and Liverpool. Manuel Pellegrini’s players seem divided and slipped Chelsea in the title race.
Leicester is also in very bad shape. The foxes have not won in their last five matches in the Premier League, as they recorded four losses in those five matches against Stoke, United, Crystal Palace and Arsenal and recorded one draw in their visit to Goodison Park against Everton.
The guests in today’s match are fighting for their survival and will try to take the most of the game, but it will be very difficult. They are seven points from the 17th Aston Villa. The champions are enraged by the losses from Barcelona and Liverpool and will give everything to win this game. Pellegrini is expected to rely on the blades in the attack Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, and at the bench will be their new addition Wilfried Bony. In the first half of the season, City scored a victory with a zero to one. Then the victory brought Frank Lampard.
The citizens have only one clean sheet in their last ten matches, which can seriously bother the coach Manuel Pellegrini. However, I expect an easy win for City, which should bring peace in the team and my prediction is a victory for the home team with handicap (-1). Betting houses like Sportingbet and Bet365 offer odds for that bet from 1.66 to win for City with two or more goals and 1.33 for pure victory for the Citizens. The draw is with odds of 3.40 and the victory of the visitors is offered with odds of 5. For over 2.5 goals the odds are 1.30 and for under 2.5 goals the odds are 1.80.
