What Trueform says for Man City vs Leicester

Manchester City have had a couple of blips in recent weeks on our Trueform ratings and the vibes are that there could now be value in taking them on with Leicester.

The Foxes will be fired up for this clash following a failed attempt by the Premier League leaders to lure Riyad Mahrez away from them on transfer deadline day.

Punters can get 13/10 for the visitors with two goals start on the handicap list and that is tempting enough to feature in our Man City vs Leicester betting predictions.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

Manchester City had 71 per cent of the possession at Burnley on Saturday and created 20 attempts on goal, with Raheem Sterling missing one absolute sitter, so it would be foolish to be too critical of that 1-1 draw.

However, there are signs of cracks beginning to appear, with Pep Guardiola choosing not to fill his substitutes’ bench and Kevin De Bruyne conceding he was tired at Turf Moor.

“I was feeling it from the first minute,” said the midfielder. “We’ve only got 15 or 16 players available at the moment, so we need to get through it.”

The Blues do go into this game on the back of a rare midweek break, but next Tuesday’s trip to Basel in the Champions League could prove a distraction.

Looking at the Man City vs Leicester odds, we feel 8/1 for a slender 2-1 win in favour of the hosts is still worth a saver though.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester have clearly been hampered by the transfer speculation surrounding Mahrez, suffering two disappointing results during his absence.

A 2-1 loss at Everton ended their run of six games without defeat, while the Foxes were held to a 1-1 draw by Swansea at King Power Stadium on Saturday.

On the plus side, Jamie Vardy did score in both fixtures and Claude Puel was content with the Foxes’ overall play against the Swans.

“We created lots of chances with quality and good combinations, a good understanding,” said the manager. “It was amazing but without the final clinical edge.”

We feel the visitors can be competitive here and 4/5 for both teams to score at Etihad Stadium is added to our Man City vs Leicester betting tips.
