Manchester City -208
High-flying Manchester City will be looking to give their fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on relegation strugglers Leicester City at King Power Stadium on day 16 of the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign. The newcomers face an uphill task as they welcome title holder Manchester City at their King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Leicester City were producing stellar displays at the start of the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, but the newcomers then suffered a dip in form. The Foxes are on an eight-match winless run in the national championship and, as a result, they literally hit the bottom of the Premier League standings. Summer signing Leonardo Ulloa is the only bright star in the team, but I am not sure if he is capable of helping his teammates avoid defeat in the upcoming clash against the Citizens. The Foxes, though, did well to score five goals against Manchester United earlier this season and I would not be surprised if they found the net against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
Manchester City, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the start of the new Premier League campaign. The Citizens were dropping a lot of points in the opening matches of the season, but the defending champions have been in a brilliant form of late. Thanks to four consecutive wins in the national championship Manuel Pellegrini’s men revived their title hopes and they did well to melt Chelsea’s advantage to just three points in the Premier League standings. Nonetheless, Manchester City do not want to stop now and they will surely go for a win in Saturday’s match against Leicester City. The Citizens did well to defeat Roma on Wednesday night and clinch their spot in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Free Soccer Pick:
I believe that Leicester can score at least once against City, considering that City have conceded 2 goals in 8 matches this season. City will naturally score at least once, so we are looking at a high scoring game.
