MANCHESTER CITY VS LEICESTER CITY: PREDICTIONS

Manchester City made the perfect start to the new Premier League season with a resounding 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, and they face an equally difficult challenge at home to Leicester City this weekend.

Pep Guardiola’s side banished the ghosts from last campaign in their curtain raiser, beating bogey team Wolves, who completed an unexpected double over them in 2019/20, at the Molineux.

The Citizens will now want to push on and make it back-to-back wins as they mount a Premier League title assault, looking to usurp current holders Liverpool. However, their visitors on Sunday, Leicester, are in red-hot form and enter this contest with two wins on the board. Brendan Rodgers will be relishing the trip to the Etihad.

MANCHESTER CITY VS LEICESTER CITY: TEAM STATS

Few players boast prolific goalscoring records against Man City, but Jamie Vardy has proven a thorn in the club’s side for a number of years now. The Foxes forward has scored five goals in his last eight appearances against Man City and is the only player to score a top-flight hat-trick against a side managed by Pep Guardiola. He also opened the scoring at the Etihad last season between these two teams, and don’t think he is not capable of doing so again.

In that same game Man City came from behind to win 3-1, such is the goalscoring prowess of Guardiola’s side, and they will fancy their chances again this time round. Man City have clinched victory in six of their last seven league games against Leicester and have never lost an opening home match in the Premier League. The Foxes may get on the scoresheet, but Man City should have enough to overwhelm their opponents and clinch maximum points.
