Reason For Manchester City vs Leicester Betting Tips

  • Manchester City are 3rd in the Premier League, 14 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool.
  • Leicester come into this game 2nd, four points clear of their opponents.
  • Manchester City have conceded in six of their last seven Premier League matches.
  • The Foxes have scored in all but one of their Premier League away fixtures this season.

Man City’s title defence hangs by a thread

Manchester City come into this pre-Christmas clash with hopes of successfully defending their Premier League crown hanging by the most fragile of threads. 

They were emphatic in their 3-0 win over Arsenal last weekend, but the fact remains that they are 3rd in the table and some 14 points adrift of Liverpool. It goes without saying that catching them now is going to prove incredibly difficult.

The Citizens main area of concern this season is their defensive record, with Vincent Kompany’s summer departure and an early injury to Aymeric Laporte greatly diminishing their defensive presence. They have conceded over a goal per game on average and have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven Premier League games.

Leicester take advantage of top teams’ underperformance

While Man City are the underperforming champions, Leicester are yet again the plucky underdogs making a shock title challenge. They come into Christmas 2nd in the table, although still looking up at a 10 point gap between themselves and Liverpool.

Even so, the fact that The Foxes have a 13 point cushion inside the top four is testament to just how well Brendan Rodgers has them playing right now.

That being said, Leicester did drop points for the first time since the start of October last weekend as they drew with Norwich, and their defensive rigidity has come undone somewhat over the last few weeks.

Goalscoring stats point towards entertaining clash

They have now conceded in three of their last four Premier League games, although it’s also worth noting that they haven’t failed to score since a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in the middle of September. 

Manchester City, meanwhile, have found the net in all but one of their league outings this term. This, along with Leicester failing to score in just one of their away games this season, makes Both Teams to Score look like an excellent value bet.

Manchester City may have been slightly below par at times this season, but they should still have enough about them to get the three points on Saturday. Leicester have lost four of their last five away games against last season’s Premier League top six, and with two of Man City’s last three home games ending 2-1 we think that’s the best option in the correct score market.
