Leicester vs Man City Prediction: Premier League Match on 03.04.2021
The top club football competitions from around Europe make a welcome return this weekend following a break for the first three rounds of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. It was an exciting week for followers of the home nations, but most will be delighted to get back to cheering on their favourite Premier League sites. In this article, we preview Leicester City vs Man City from the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The home team are pushing for a top-four finish this season and return to the Champions League. Their efforts so far merit a spot in UEFA’s elite, but nothing is decided yet. Man City are pulling clear of the chasing pack and are Premier League champions in waiting. With every win, they edge a step closer to regaining the trophy from Liverpool.
Foxes within touching distance
Leicester starts the weekend third in the Premier League behind Man City and Man Utd. They can’t win the title at this stage, meaning their priority between now and the finish line will be holding their ground. Securing a share of the Champions League riches is massive for a club like Leicester, but that have invested heavily in their squad, and the board must see a return on that cash spent.
The Foxes have won 17 games so far, drawing five and losing their other seven. They have found the net 53 times and conceded 32. Having claimed victory in each of their last two starts, Leicester is just one point behind Man Utd and seven better than West Ham United in fifth place. They are almost over the line, but there is still a little work to do before the squad can celebrate.
Man City home and hosed
Pep Guardiola was tasked with getting his team back to the top of English football this season after losing their title to Liverpool in the summer. The Cityzens failed to offer much of a challenge last term but have been almost faultless in their comeback campaign, enjoying an extended winning run. Man City sit in pole position and are practically uncatchable at this late stage of proceedings.
The visitors arrive at the King Power Stadium, having won each of their last two games, and the 71 points on the board mean they are 14 better than nearest rivals Manchester United in second place. City was beaten by United recently but had enough of a cushion to take the impact of that. Fans are now counting down the days and predicting when the league will be won, and they can celebrate the achievement.
Leicester vs Man City prediction
Both teams have impressed this season and enter this match high on confidence. The pressure is on Leicester to make their home advantage count and grab another vital three points. The visitors can afford to take their foot off the gas a little, but Pep has built a winning team, and they’ll want to sprint to the finish and show precisely why they are champions.
