Manchester City vs Leicester City Preview

Manchester City vs Leicester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 6th May 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This is yet another game that Liverpool fans are praying that Manchester City don’t get maximum points so that they can hand the advantage to them.

The Cityzens are two wins away from retaining the Premier League crown they won in record-breaking fashion last season.

They have been very consistent this year and this consistency has placed them one point ahead of an equally impressive Liverpool side that has been relentless in their pursuit of the top spot for most of the season.

If Liverpool had held their nerve and been consistent, the race would be over with the Reds holding a commanding points lead at some point.

Leicester City have a former Liverpool boss as their current manager and Brendan Rodgers was in a similar title race with City in the 2013/2014 season so he will know how to stop a team gunning for the title.

Although Rodgers has said he has no interest in helping Liverpool, we do know that his team is also playing for a Europa League spot so they will be playing for maximum points in this game which could be of help to Liverpool.

Leicester City beat Arsenal 3-0 in their last league game and that was their 5th win from their last 7 games so they come here full of confidence and with a desire to beat the Cityzens.

Unfortunately for Leicester, oddsmakers are giving them zero chance of beating Manchester City on this Monday night fixtures.

Bookies have priced Manchester City up as if defeat is out of the question while Leicester City’s odds reflect those of a 4th tier opponent.

Goal markets point to a high-scoring game as over 3.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Sergio Aguero is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
