With only one point more than Liverpool, Manchester City need to win both of the remaining matches in order to secure the Premier League title.

Two more rounds are left and Man City need to win both of those matches in order to stay at the top. In the final round, they play against Brighton, which means that their toughest challenge is the one taking place at the Etihad on Monday evening. They got a bad history against Leicester in recent times. For instance, in the first part of the season, they lost 2:1. But, that game was played in Leicester. This time, Man City is the host.
Manchester City is the best home team in the Premier League, with 17 wins and only one defeat so far. And in 2019, they’ve won every single match played at their turf. And they did it in style. In the 9 matches played at the Etihad in 2019, Man City have scored a total of 21 goals, which is more than two goals per game on average.
And that’s just one of many reasons why the host is our favorite in our Manchester City vs Leicester prediction. Still, the main reason why Man City seem capable of winning this game without any major problems is that they are simply the better team of the two.
They have 6 points fewer than Wolves who are at the 7th place, but the team from Wolverhampton has played one game more. What this means is that the Foxes still have a chance to finish the season at the 7th place, which could get them a ticket for the Europa League. Still, that chance seems slim, especially because for that to happen, they would need to beat Man City on Monday.
Sure, Leicester aren’t too bad of a team, but they’re nowhere near Man City. They’re also pretty okay when it comes to playing away from home, but Man City are going to be very determined to get all 3 points from this game. And when they’re determined, not many Premier League teams can stop them.
On the bright side for Leicester fans, they’ve won already once against Man City. But, last season, when the match was played in Manchester, the score was 5:1 for the home side. If you scroll down to the Manchester City vs Leicester betting tips, you’ll see that I’m expecting something similar to happen this time as well.
Manchester City absentees:
- Kevin De Bruyne (injury)
- Fernandinho (doubtful)
- Daniel Amartey (doubtful)
Ederson – Kompany, Walker, Laporte, Gundogan, Zinchenko, David Silva, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Sane – Aguero
Schmeichel – Evans, Maguire, Ricardo Pereira, Chilwell – Choudhury, Ndidi, Tielemans, Albrighton, Maddison – Vardy
Manchester City vs Leicester Prediction
Leicester are going into this game after beating Arsenal 3:0, but I really doubt they can do anything here. Man City are super-motivated to win this match, as the Premier League title is at stake. Plus, in this game, they will have the support of their fans. And at home, they’re simply brilliant. We should see an easy home win.
