Leicester vs Man City Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Goals have not been a problem for Leicester and Man City who are set to serve up a goalfest in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. This clash is set to favour the attackers with Leicester's Jamie Vardy tipped to continue his scoring run against City.

Leicester Form


Leicester were held to a 0-0 draw at Wolves in their previous Premier League fixture where they failed to take their chances in an open encounter.

The Foxes remain third on the table but have looked off colour lately with two wins and as many draws in their last five matches. Brendan Rodgers’ men still have their scoring touch at home having found the net six times in their last two matches at the King Power Stadium.

They recorded a 4-1 victory over West Ham and a 2-2 draw against Chelsea on their home patch with eight of Jamie Vardy’s 17 goals this season coming at the King Power Stadium.
