Leicester Team News

Since winning the Premier League in 2014/2015, Leicester has always been a team that everyone ranks in the upper half of the table. In the previous few seasons, Leicester played in European competitions for two consecutive seasons, where they were within reach of the places that lead to the Champions League. The previous season they experienced a slight decline by finishing as the eighth-placed team of the championship.

Certainly, this season Leicester  has the individual quality to be involved in the contest for positions that lead to Europe, but their games at the beginning of the new season are far from the level of football provided by the teams from the upper half of the table.

Presently, Leicester is only the 17th ranked team in the league with only 11 points, and their last line with 24 conceded goals is the worst in the championship along with Bournemouth. Needless to say, the last line happens to be the team’s biggest issue at the onset of the season, while the offensive zone works just fine, as shown by the 21 goals scored in 12 matches.

Additionally, Leicester has huge concerns when it comes to absences in the last line previous to this match. They cannot count on two defenders, Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira, while the performance of Evans is questionable. Apart from them, Wilfred Ndidi, the midfielder, is not going to perform today either.

Manchester City Team News

Manchester City has won the English Premier League four times in the last five seasons, and given that they have been strengthened by Haaland this season, they are the first favorite to win this season as well.

Since the start of the season, Manchester City has been fantastic. They have only one defeat this season against Liverpool in the English Premier League, and their attacking zone is arguably the most effective in the Premier League with 36 goals scored in 11 matches played. They also added 11 goals in five matches of the Champions League, where they have already secured first place in the group.

The whole team of Manchester City looks great, but Erling Haaland is in fantastic form and at this time, undoubtedly, is the best player in the English Premier League. Following 11 Premier League games, he scored 17 goals, therefore, with him in the attack, City’s attacking zone is way of better quality than in previous seasons.

Manchester City is going to be without Kyle Walker and Kalvin Philips, who have been out for some time. In addition to them, the performance of Erling Haaland, who was injured in the Champions League against Dortmund and ended the game at halftime, is uncertain as well.

H2H

  • Manchester City defeated the Leicester team in both matches last season, in which they scored seven goals.
  • In the last four visits to the King Power, Manchester City registered three victories.

Leicester vs. Manchester City Prediction

Leicester plays far below the anticipated level at the onset of this season. Their last line being desperate, is one of the worst in the league, particularly, they have concerns with absences in that part of the field before this match.

It is to be expected that Manchester City win the middle of the field in this match and that they will be the team to have much more possession and control the game. We are of the opinion that City is going to create a far greater number of goal chances today, and even if Haaland does not play today, we anticipate a huge victory for Manchester City.
