Manchester City stand at the second position and they are one of the main candidates for the title. The match against current leader Leicester City could be crucial and one of the most important matches for home side this season. City have three points less than their opponent, so in the case of win they could be take/share the first position. Spurs and Arsenal are only two points behind, so that is another reason for home side to do their best in order to take all three points. In the first half of the season, the match between Leicester City vs Manchester City was finished with goalless draw, despite the fact that team from Manchester dominated on that game. After Segio Aguero got back in the squad, Man City have started to play better. The Argentinian striker scored 5 goals in the last three Premier league matches and he will be the most dangerous player for Leicester defence.

Leicester still live their dreams and stand at the first position. Everyone predicted that they will not have enough strengths to even finish in the Top 4, but they continue to play good in the second half of the season and without any doubt they are one of the main favorites to win the title this season. Visitors lost only two times this season in Premier league and they hope that can make another positive result at Etihad. In the previous round Leicester beat Liverpool 2-0 and it was their second win upfront their supporters this year. Their coach Claudio Ranieri even gave us betting prediction for this game. “It’s an open game as they want to win. We want to win too, so it’s open. Both teams want to win, so maybe it’ll be a draw.” – said Ranieri.
