Leicester’s recent revival has eased the pressure on Brendan Rodgers but they face a daunting task trying to extend their unbeaten run this weekend.
Seven points from the last three games has lifted the Foxes out of the bottom three so the visit of the champions is the last thing they would want after finally building some much-needed momentum.
One of the division’s worst defences could struggle against a rampant City team so an away win and over 3.5 goals at 13/10 is our top Leicester vs Man City prediction.
Leicester City Odds
Clinical Leicester ran riot to climb out of the drop zone last weekend thanks to a 4-0 win against Wolves at Molineux.
Youri Tielemans’ brilliant opener set the Foxes on the way to their first away victory of the season.
Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy also struck as the Foxes scored with their first four shots.
Rodgers said: “Collectively, we were excellent. We have played well in a lot of games and we should have more points.
“Danny (Ward) made a couple of great saves but you have to stay strong. When we played the ball forward we looked good and could have scored more goals.
“We have to be better with the ball and retain it better, make better decisions. We broke forward really well. Our objective was to get over the line.”
As impressive as that result was, it is important to note their three wins this season have been against the three teams currently in the relegation zone.
They have lost all five matches against opponents now in the top half by an aggregate score of 18-7, having been hit for six by Tottenham and four at Arsenal.
The Foxes have only failed to find the net in two games this season though so Leicester vs Man City odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Ward, Justin, Faes, Amartey, Castagne, Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Soumare, Daka.
Jonny Evans could be available and will be assessed after battling a calf injury. Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring) has also returned to training, but Ricardo Pereira (Achilles) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) are out.
Manchester City Odds
City were held to a second successive 0-0 draw in the Champions League in midweek but that will not be a concern to Pep Guardiola after his side clinched top spot in the group with a game to spare.
There was no urgency to chase a winner at Borussia Dortmund, although they could have secured victory if Riyad Mahrez had not missed a penalty.
Converting spot-kicks is one of the few issues for City, who are clear favourites to retain their Premier League title after cutting Arsenal’s lead to two points last weekend.
Erling Haaland’s first-half brace proved decisive in a 3-1 win against Brighton and that was the fourth time in the last five league games that City have been at least two goals up by the break.
Let’s take 9/4 for that trend to continue as the last of our Leicester vs Man City betting tips.
Last Man City line-up: Ortega, Dias, Stones, Ake, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, Foden, Haaland, Alvarez, Mahrez.
City have fitness doubts over Haaland, who was taken off at half-time against Dortmund having suffered with an illness and taken a knock to his ankle. Joao Cancelo is said to be fit after also being taken off, but Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker remain out.
