Match Preview of Man City vs Leicester

A true test of Leicester City's purple patch awaits them at the King Power Stadium this Saturday lunchtime, as Premier League champions Manchester City pay a visit.

Brendan Rodgers's side convincingly beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-0 last weekend, while City were held to a goalless draw in the Champions League by Borussia Dortmund.

Whatever Leicester have been feeding their stars since the start of October has gone down a treat, as the Foxes are finally rediscovering their best form to enter Saturday's game having recorded back-to-back wins over Leeds United and Wolves.

The profligacy of the latter has been evident all season long, but there was no such lack of ruthlessness from Leicester when they visited Molineux last weekend, as Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy came up with the goods in a 4-0 romping.

Having taken 10 points from a possible 15 during a period of marked improvement, Leicester have both eased the pressure on themselves and their manager to climb out of the relegation zone into 17th place - two points clear of all three sides below the dotted line.

Our Predicted Lineups

Man City possible starting lineup:Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Akanji, Laporte; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Alvarez, Grealish

Leicester possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Ward; Castagne, Faes, Amartey, Justin; Soumare; Maddison, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes; Vardy

Who will win the match?

We say: Man City 1-0 Leicester. Leicester's upturn in form, Man City's spate of goalless games away from home and concerns over Haaland's fitness makes this a far trickier game for the champions than some may have anticipated, especially with a rejuvenated Vardy seeking to continue his prolific streak against the big boys.
