Leicester dropped at the second position after Arsenal beat Bournemouth 2-0 last night, but home side have one match less, so in the case of win they can retake the first position. Leicester City suffer their second defeat this season in Premier League, in the previous round when Liverpool beat them 1-0, so this will be another test for Claudio Ranieri‘s side. “City is another fantastic test. You know my idea about this (winning the title) – we are dreaming.” – said Ranieri. Home side lost only once this season at home (against Arsenal), so they hope that can make positive result against one of the main candidate for the title. Vardy and Mahrez finished earlier the last match against Liverpool to be more prepared for City. Interesting fact about this game is that Leicester City owners Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha offer free beer to mark memorable 2015.

Manchester City smashed Sunderland 4-1 in the previous round and now they have only three points less than Leicester City, so in the case of win they could retake the second position from the host and have only one point less than Arsenal. “We must consider Leicester a team that will have options to be fighting for the title until the end. They are top of the table because they deserve to be. They have important players in a very good moment.” – said Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini. City play amazing at Etihad, but away from home their performance is not impressive. They have managed to win only three times away this season in Premier League, while in the last 5 matches they failed to win.

Leicester vs Manchester City injuries and suspensions

Leicester City are still without Jeffrey Schlupp (14/1 f) and Matthew James (0/0 m), while Danny Drinkwater (16/0 m) is doubtful. On the other side, Man City miss Vincent Kompany (9/2 d) and Samir Nasri (7/1 m), while their top scorer Sergio Aguero (11/7 m) is doubtful, but probably will be in the first eleven. Fernando (9/0 m) and Pablo Zabaleta (2/0 d) have some problems with injuries and probably both will miss this game.

Leicester vs Manchester City possible lineups

Leicester: Schmeichel; Fuchs, Huth, Morgan, Simpson; Albrighton, Kante, King, Mahrez; Vardy, Ulloa.
Manchester City: Hart; Sagna, Otamendi, Mangala, Clichy; Delph, Toure; De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling; Aguero.

Leicester vs Manchester City Prediction

Take it into consideration all above before you choose betting prediction for this game. Can Leicester avoid defeat and stay unbeaten we will see. They are playing amazing this season, but it’s questionable how the defeat in the previous round had an effect on the team. Both teams have amazing attackers, while on the other side their defences are not impressive, so I believe that we will watch an interesting game between Leicester vs Manchester City and many goals in both nets.
