Leicester vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Preview 22 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-1
Leicester vs Manchester City PredictionTomorrow, Leicester City will be light up with one of the most anticipated games of the season as the Foxes take on Manchester City in front of the latter’s home support. 
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 27
Kick-off:
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester)
Manchester City occupy second position on the standings, leaving Leicester City playing second fiddle to Pep Guardiola’s charges in third place.

Also, both teams seem guaranteed of a place in next year’s Champions League finals with the title race a pretty foregone conclusion. This game will be more of an ego boast. With City preparing for a Champions league knockout encounter, top players might be rested for this fixture
Leicester have been fairly moderate in form by reason of their last five Premier league games having won only once, lost twice and drawn twice. 

Leicester seem to hold the advantage here as the Citizens face a Champions League knockout game against Spanish giants Real Madrid on Wednesday and several key players will probably be rested.

Expect an entertaining and enthralling encounter at the King Power Stadium as both sides tussle for bragging rights as well as maximum points.

Leicester City vs Manchester City Team News

At one stage, it did appear that Leicester were in a Premier League title race, but Liverpool's stunning form this season has seen the Reds leave the rest of the competition behind.

The Foxes have enjoyed a very impressive campaign to date, though, and are in a strong position when it comes to securing Champions League football for the 2020-21 campaign. Indeed, they are comfortably third at the moment, nine points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea, who are struggling for form.

Brendan Rodgers's team sit 10 points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in fifth, meanwhile, demonstrating their strength when it comes to the Champions League spots.

It is almost one month since Leicester last won a game, though, which came away to Brentford in the FA Cup. 

Since then, they have lost to Aston Villa in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final, in addition to drawing back-to-back Premier League matches with Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Indeed, Pep Guardiola 's team recorded a 3-1 victory in the reverse game at the Etihad Stadium back in December, but Leicester ran out 2-1 winners when they last locked horns at the King Power Stadium in December 2018.

Pipping Man City to second spot would represent a wonderful campaign for Leicester, and they will certainly be the fresher of the two teams considering that the reigning champions played on Wednesday night.

Indeed, having seen their clash with West Ham earlier this month postponed due to bad weather, the fixture was rescheduled for Wednesday. It was the first time that the Citizens had taken to the field since news of their two-year Champions League suspension had been revealed.

It is only a matter of time before Jurgen Klopp 's team are crowned champions, but the race for second is very much open, and a poor result for the visitors this weekend would open the door for Leicester to pounce.

Injured or Suspended Players

Leicester City: Amartey, Mendy, Choudhury, Ndidi and James.

Manchester City: Sane, Sterling and David Silva.

Leicester vs Man City Predictions

Manchester City's recent record over Leicester will hand them a lot of confidence, but Guardiola might feel that his side have bigger fish to fry as they prepare to head to Spain. Leicester's league form has not exactly been terrific in recent weeks, although we still expect the Foxes to pick up a point on home soil.
