Man City continue their march for a treble with a 4-1 hammering of Southampton last weekend and a 3-0 success over Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek. Leicester meanwhile are desperate for points at the bottom as they sit second bottom.

At the Etihad, City have played ten in all competitions in 2023 and they have managed victory in all ten of these encounters. Their opponents have failed to win any of their last four on the road and suffered defeats at Southampton and Crystal Palace.

The reverse came at the end of October (29th) and was a competitive game that City won on that occasion 1-0 thanks to a Kevin De Bruyne strike. Brendan Rodgers has a decent record against City and Pep but it is now Dean Smith in the Foxes dugout and his Norwich side lost 4-0 at Carrow Road last time he was up against them.

Manchester City vs Leicester City match stats

With second from top playing second from bottom a home win looks obvious here so the best angle of attack is trying to find a way to get with the hosts. A Bet365 bet builder appeals here as you can get the game to have three or more goals (City look capable of this by themselves), Jack Grealish to score anytime (he has two in his last two league games) and Ndidi (carded in two of his last four in all competitions) to be booked pays 12/1.

Sticking with Leicester and Danish left-back Victor Kristiansen looks set for a busy afternoon in this one dealing with the pace of City. The Dane committed three tackles and four clearances against Bournemouth last time out and looks set for a difficult time here. He looks value at 2/1 with Sky Bet to commit two or more fouls.

Kevin De Bruyne has a good record against the Foxes having netted once in each of his last two starts against them including in the reverse fixture. Jamie Vardy might be in line for recall given the problems Leicester are having and he has four in his last eight against City.
