Leicester vs Manchester City Betting PreviewLeicester City have enjoyed another solid campaign under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers. They are third in the table, five points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea - a good position to clinch a top four finish and Champions League participation next year. The Foxes will be bidding for a fourth victory in a row as they followed up Premier League wins over Brighton and Sheffield Utd by beating Manchester United 3-1 in the FA Cup quarter-finals. The reverse fixture, played at the Etihad back in September, saw Leicester City come from behind to beat Manchester City 5-2
Manchester City are 14 points clear of second placed Manchester United and are few wins away to win the Premier League title. Thier record-breaking winning streak may have been ended in a 2-0 loss to Manchester UTD last month, but they responded to that with victories over Southampton and Fulham in the top flight. The Citizens won 2-0 at Everton in the FA Cup quarter finals last time out, recording a 17th straight away game, breaking a club record. They still boast the best defensive record of the league, having conceded just 15 goals in the last 28 Premier League outings.
Despite playing on the travel, Manchester City are favorite here, with STS offering 3/5 for the away win. A victory for Leicester is backable at 11/2 with William Hill while the best price for the draw is 16/5 offered by Betfair.

Probable Line-UpsLeicester (3-5-2): Schmeichel; Soyuncu, Evans, Fofana; Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Praet, Castagne; Vardy, Iheanacho
James Justin and Harvey Barnes are definitely out, while James Maddison, Wes Morgan, Ricardo Pereira and Cengiz Under are not fully fit. Should Brendan Rodgers go for a more defensive approach, Ayoze Perez is likely to make way, with one of Hamza Choudhury, Dennis Praet or Nampalys Mendy taking his place. The in-form Kelechi Iheancho - who has nine goals in as many games - will partner Jamie Vardy up front.
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodrigo, B.Silva; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
Pep Guardiola has no injury or suspension issues - and that could see yet another rotated side ahead of next week’s tie with Dortmund. Ilkay Gundogan managed to cram in 270 minutes of game-time for Germany and could be rested with Bernardo Silva or Fernandinho favorite to replace him. Rodri, Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne were less busy over the last fortnight and should feature from the off, while Gabriel Jesus should get the nod over Sergio Aguero for the central striker berth.
Our Leicester vs Manchester City Predictions
Manchester City have won 6 of their last 7 matches against Leicester in all competitions. The Reds have won the last two meetings by a 7-0 aggregate scoreline, including a 3-0 triumph in the reverse. Anyway, this time it could be different. We expect Leicester to frustrate the Merseysiders and a Home/Draw double chance should not let us down.
