Leicester were in excellent form coming into the international break, undefeated in 4 consecutive and after a qualification to the semi-finals of the FA Cup. They will now emerge from the break with a tough match, playing host to league leaders Manchester City on Saturday. Manchester City are having a tremendous season and a win here against 3rd-placed Leicester will put them one step closer to the title.
Leicester (17-7-5) beat Manchester United by 3-1 in the FA Cup quarter-finals and moved to the next round. They blasted Sheffield United by a confident 5-0 at home in their last EPL match and they are now undefeated in their last 4 (3-0-1). The Foxes are sitting at the 3rd spot of the league table with 56 points, 1 behind Manchester United and 15 behind Manchester City. They have a 7-6-1 record at home, scoring 25 and conceding 19 goals so far.
Manchester City (22-3-5) are en route for another title, sitting at the top of the league with 71 points. They’ve scored 64 goals and have conceded 21 in the process, by far the best defense in the league. They beat Everton by 2-0 on the road in the FA Cup quarter-finals and progressed to the semis. They have now won 4 in a row after losing to Manchester United, and 24 of their last 25 matches in all competitions. Stunning. They have a 10-1-3 record on the road so far in the EPL, losing only to Tottenham and winning each of their last 14.
Free Soccer Pick:
Leicester actually destroyed Manchester City by a hefty 5-2 in Manchester in the reverse fixture. Leicester were awarded (and made) 3 penalty kicks in that match. They have not been very good as hosts against City over the years, winning just two of the 14 matches in all competitions (2-7-5). Under 2.5 Goals looks like the way to go here.
