Today’s Epl match: Leicester city – Manchester. Expect a win or draw for the pep’s men

Both sides were on the losing end in their last respective league game and will look to correct it in East Midlands on Saturday evening.

 

Reigning English Premier League champions Leicester City take on Manchester City at the King Power Stadium in a bid to reverse recent misfortunes.

with main striker sergio aguero suspended for four matches after seeing red against Chelsea, Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho will take his place.

The Foxes are in no way playing like the champions they once were. They are without a win in their last five league matches, drawing two and losing three, the most recent losing 2-1 at Sunderland last weekend. This has left Claudio Ranieri’s side in 16th place, two points from the relegation zone.

 

The Citizens suffered their second league loss and first at home under the management of Pep Guardiola last weekend to log leaders Chelsea. It was a game City dominated but failed to convert their chances. Despite the loss, they still remain four points from the top.

Both sides played out to a goalless draw in the corresponding fixture at this venue last season.

 

Leicester succeeded in beating Man City at the Ethiad Stadium 3-1 last season but before then, the men from the blue half of Manchester had gone eight games unbeaten against the Foxes, wining four.

 

The Foxes haven’t won their last seven home matches against City in all competitions. This will be an opportunity for the men in sky blue to score first.
