Football Prediction – Leicester City vs Manchester City

Manchester City will want to win three straight Premier League victories when they return to action against Leicester City. For this match on Saturday afternoon, here is our football prediction – Leicester City vs Manchester City.

The Citizens have six points from their first three games. They lost their opening football match to Tottenham and then won over Norwich City and Arsenal (football prediction).

As a result, they are seventh in the table, while Leicester have six points and are in ninth place. They too, have played three rounds of fixtures in England’s top flight.

Team News

Leicester City

  • Ryan Bertand, who missed the start of the season with COVID-19, should be back in contention.
  • On the other hand, youngster Luke Thomas continues to impress for the Foxes and should keep his spot.
  • Ricardo Pereira was unable to join the Portugal squad due to a thigh injury. So, he will most likely miss the game due to a hamstring injury.
  • Jonny Evans and Jannik Vestergaard, on the other hand, have accelerated their recoveries during the international break. Thus, they may be part of the squad.

Leicester City possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Tielemans, Ndidi; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Manchester City

  • Kevin De Bruyne used the international break to recover from an injury-plagued start to the season. But, though he avoided travel with Belgium’s national team, he remains a doubt here.
  • During the break, Manchester City prevented Gabriel Jesus and Ederson from traveling to Brazil. The pair are now barred from playing in this game because of the Brazilian FA invoking a FIFA ruling.
  • Further, with Zack Steffen in quarantine due to a positive COVID test, Scott Carson is expected to start in goal. This means that Sterling and Mahrez vying for the role of Jesus.
  • Aymeric Laporte has been fatigued during the break, so John Stones could make his first appearance for City this season.

Manchester City possible starting lineup: Carson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Bernardo, Rodri, Gundogan; Grealish, F Torres, Sterling

Football Prediction – Leicester City vs Manchester City

  • Leicester has two wins from their first three games, but losing 4-1 to West Ham gave them cause for concern.
  • Meanwhile, Manchester City has won back-to-back 5-0 games against Norwich and Arsenal after losing to Tottenham on the opening weekend.
  • In recent meetings, Leicester has had some success against City. They won the Community Shield last month and defeated City 5-2 at the Etihad earlier in the season.
  • While not impossible, it’s still difficult to look past Leicester’s defensive injury woes and so, we predict a City victory.

This is a difficult match to call. It is difficult to predict what will happen after an international break, especially one so early in the season.

Manchester City will try for three wins in a row, while Leicester will be missing some key players this weekend.

Eventually, we’ll have to settle for a low-scoring draw or City triumph.

Our Prediction: Leicester City 1-2 Manchester City
