Soccer predictions for Leicester City vs Manchester City
Leicester City hosts Manchester City in a 19th round of the Premier League. The duel will be played on Boxing Day, December 26, starting at 3:00 pm at King Power Stadium.
Manchester City has suffered a second defeat since the start of the season after he lost 2:3 on Crystal Palace on his own weekend. Londoners gave the big surprise in the 18th round of the English Championship and brought a second loss to the Pep Guardiola team’s campaign. Now Manchester City has a hard time on Leicester City and will have to win the game if he does not want to lose more than four points from Liverpool leader.
The Leicester City team is ranked ninth in the standings with 25 points. The hosts have won 39% of their matches this season with 22 goals and 21 hits. In contrast to his rival, Leicester City performed very well on Saturday after defeating Chelsea 1-0 as a guest. Jamie Vardy brought the “foxes” success, marking his sixth goal since the start of the season. The English striker is the top scorer of the team, with Leicester’s second most successful player being James Maddison with 5 goals.
Leicester City has won only three of its eight households this season. In their last home game, they played against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup tournament where they dropped out after penalty shootouts. Before that, Leicester City defeated Tottenham Hotspur with 0:2 and will now try to return to the winning streets of King Power Stadium.
The Manchester City team won only two of their last five away games in all of the tournaments. “Citizens” seem to be hesitant, but they are still favorites for the three points in this game. Top scorers of the team, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero, respectively, with 9 and 8 goals should improve their shape. Manchester City has a lot better players and should recover after losing to Crystal Palace, so I expect to win this match.
