Leicester vs Man City: Squawka Says

Scoreline prediction: Leicester 1-3 Man City

Leicester vs Man City: Predictions

Manchester City have cantered to the Premier League summit this season and look destined to reclaim the title from Liverpool, but Pep Guardiola, ever the perfectionist, will not want complacency to creep in now, and he will be determined to avenge the humiliating loss his side suffered to Leicester in the reverse fixture back in September.

Brendan Rodgers’ men ran amok that afternoon, with Jamie Vardy netting a hat-trick and bringing up eight goals in just nine games against Guardiola’s City, a staggering feat considering the utter dominance of the Citizens since the Catalan coach traded Bavaria for the temperamental climes of the North West.

That 5-2 result set in motion Leicester’s impressive rise to the upper slopes of the table, where they have largely stuck around for much of the campaign, and they will unquestionably welcome the Manchester juggernaut to the King Power without an inferiority complex, looking to tighten their grip on third.

The Foxes will be aiming to complete a first league double over City since 1986/87, while also becoming only the fourth club to achieve that feat against a Guardiola side, after Chelsea in 2016/17, and Manchester United as well as Wolves last season.

Leicester vs Man City: Match Stats

City’s barnstorming march to the summit has been a collective endeavour of creative spirit, midfield discipline and defensive resilience, but few players have come to the fore and contributed in the rise more than Ilkay Gundogan, who has now coupled his metronomic brilliance with a refined scoring touch.

The German, in fact, has been such a scoring phenom since the turn of the year, that he is the leading Premier League goalscorer in 2021 (10 goals), transforming from graceful midfield playmaker, to a sort of prolific mezzala who exploits the half space and arrives in the box with relish.

He has simply underpinned the utter superiority of City since going on a near-insurmountable charge from autumn following that debilitating 2-0 loss to Tottenham in late-November, alleviating the noticeable scoring void of Sergio Aguero, while continuing his consummate midfield authority.

Vardy’s hat-trick in that 5-2 win earlier this season was actually his second scoring trifecta against Guardiola, having also notched thrice in a 4-2 win back in December 2016. Such has been Vardy’s prowess since the Catalan relocated to the Premier League, that he is actually netted twice as many top-flight goals as any other player against a Guardiola side.
