LEI vs MCI PL Dream11 Prediction | Leicester City FC vs Manchester City FC
Leicester City FC welcome Manchester City FC at the King Power Stadium in a matchup between second and third. Pep Guardiola and his men sit second on the table with 54 points, while Brendon Rodger’s Foxes sit a spot below on the Premier League table with 50 points.
With one eye on the CL clash against Real Madrid, Pep hinted there might be a few changes in the lineup on Saturday. However, it is highly unlikely that Leicester would do the same, especially knowing that a victory will give them some breathing space as well as the distance from fourth placed Chelsea, who will play earlier on Saturday.
Let us have a look at both the teams.
Leicester City FC
Leicester failed to live up to the promising football they showed in the opening month. With a pinch of experience mixed with young blood, Brendon Rodgers has done well to manage them. However, Liverpool have played on a different level altogether, leaving the Foxes to battle it out for the second place with their rivals for the night.
Leicester have had a few dismissive outings in recent times, with just 2 of the possible 9 points in their last 3 games. Further, their recent head-to-head stat with City is not very encouraging. But the Saturday nights fixture gives them an opportunity to put it all behind them as they get a chance to provide another blow to a distracted Manchester City.
Manchester City FC
It won’t be false to say the PL title is out of Manchester City’s hands. An 18-point gap means it won’t be long before Liverpool will officially be named champions. As if that wasn’t enough, the club got another blow earlier this week with the UEFA banning them from the CL for two years. And in a week, Aguero has been rumoured to leave to Barcelona, Kevin De Bruyne and Rahim Sterling to Real Madrid.
While City claims no wrongdoings and the management is fighting it; the players know they could not feature in the next year’s top club competition. And with no major domestic commitments, they can focus on just that. But before facing Madrid, they will face a young and tough Leicester team.
Manchester City have dominated the last five head-to-heads against Leicester- winning 3 times, drawing and losing once. The most recent meeting was on 21st December, with City taking all three points. Jamie Vardy, Jesus, Gubdigan and Mahrez were on the score sheets.
The last 5 matches have seen 16 goals, 11 for City and 5 for Leicester. Both teams have scored in four out of five matches and there gave been three games with over 2 goals. So, expect a fixture with goals.
