Kick-off: 1500, 11/09/2021
Stadium: King Power Stadium
Leicester adopt a more positive approach than most teams when taking on Manchester City and have had some success in head-to-head meetings.
The Foxes romped to an incredible 5-2 win at Etihad Stadium last season to make it three victories from 10 top-flight encounters.
Both teams have scored in six of those contests and 3/4 for that to happen again here is our first Leicester vs Man City prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester also prevailed when these teams clashed in the Community Shield, thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s late penalty.
The Foxes followed up by beating Wolves 1-0 in their Premier League opener but then went down 4-1 at West Ham, where Ayoze Perez saw red.
Brendan Rodgers will have been relieved to come through a hard-fought match at Norwich with a 2-1 victory.
Jamie Vardy’s early effort was cancelled out by a Teemu Pukki penalty but Marc Albrighton restored Leicester’s lead on 76 minutes.
Leicester then completed the signing of Ademola Lookman on a season-long loan from RB Leipzig, with the winger impressing during a stint at Fulham last term.
Lookman told LCFC TV: “I’m delighted to be here. It’s a great honour to be at such a big and amazing club with such a huge history and a quality group of players.”
The Foxes are hoping to challenge for a top-four finish again this term but haven’t quite hit top gear yet, though.
Jonny Evans (foot) and Jannik Vestergaard (knee) could be back from injury but we still like 2/1 for an away win and both teams to score from the Leicester vs Man City odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Soyuncu, Amartey, Pereira, Thomas, Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Ndidi, Vardy.
Leicester will have Ricardo Pereira (hamstring) and Ryan Bertrand (Covid) available. Jonny Evans (foot) and Jannik Vestergaard (knock) are progressing but this game may come too soon while Perez is still suspended after his red card against West Ham.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Manchester City made a stuttering start to the defence of their title when beaten 1-0 at Tottenham but have rallied in emphatic fashion.
Norwich and Arsenal were both hammered 5-0 at Etihad Stadium, with eight different players getting on the scoresheet.
The Blues missed out on transfer moves for Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo but Jack Grealish has settled in well and they are still firm favourites to top the table for the fourth time in five seasons.
Ederson recently followed Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones and Ruben Dias in extending his contract at the club and everything is in place for continued success.
“This was an easy decision for me,” declared the Brazil keeper. “There is nowhere else I’d want to be.
“To be part of one of the best squads in world football and to compete for trophies year in year out is what every footballer wants and that is the opportunity you’re given at City.
“We have an outstanding manager. Working with him has been one of the great experiences of my career and I am a better player for it.
“We have achieved so much in the last four years and I am confident we can continue to bring more success to the club in the coming seasons.”
This promises to be a good contest but 7/1 for the visitors to prevail 2-1 is added to our Leicester vs Man City betting tips.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, Silva, Jesus, Grealish, Torres.
Ederson and striker Gabriel Jesus are caught up in the row involving the Brazilian football federation, FIFA and the Premier League and could be banned.
Fellow stopper Zack Steffen is unavailable after testing positive for coronavirus, while Kevin De Bruyne (ankle) and Phil Foden (foot) are both back in training.
