MCI vs LEI- PREMIER LEAGUE GAMEWEEK 27|MATCH PREVIEW


MCI vs LEI- OVERVIEW: Manchester City are running riot this year and are clearly on course to their 3rd Premier League title. The Pep Guardiola managed side has played some of the best football the league has ever seen and the gap between the top two sides on the league table speaks volumes about how good City have been.

Leicester City have not had a docile season and neither can’t their season be termed abominable. The Foxes are currently 8th on the table and will have to play exceptionally well to qualify for a Europa League qualification.

RECENT FORM IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE(MCI VS LEI):

  • Manchester City: A 1-1 draw against Burnley.
  • A 3-0 win against WestBromwich Albion.
  • A 3-1 win against Newcastle United.
  • A 4-3 defeat to Liverpool.
  • A 3-1 win against Watford.

 

  • Leicester City: A 1-1 draw against Swansea City. 
  • A 2-1 defeat to Everton.
  • A 2-0 win against Watford.
  • A 0-0 draw against Chelsea.
  • A 3-0 win against Huddersfield Town.

NEW SIGNINGS: Aymeric Laporte was acquired from Athletico Bilbao and was immediately put into action against the Baggies. The 23-year-old displayed nifty footwork and also delivered quality long balls to shift plays. If Laporte can form a sturdy partnership with Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones, City can target the coveted champions league trophy as well.

Adrien Silva was gained for £22 million but the midfielder has played only 72 minuted after his arrival at the King Power Stadium. Also, with the Riyad Mahrez transfer fiasco, Silva probably will get more match time. Fousseni Diabete also featured in the 1-1 draw against Swansea and seems to have formed a fine partnership with Wilfred Ngidi.

STATS FOR MCI VS LEI: 

  • Manchester City have lost 67% of their home Premier League matches against Leicester (4 out of 6). Their highest percentage of home defeats against any club in the Premier League.
  • Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 25 Premier League home games (W20 D5). It’s the 14th such run of 25+ games in Premier League history and the longest since Chelsea’s run of 26 that ended in April 2014.
  • Vardy has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances. The last time he scored in more consecutive games was his record run of 11 between August and November 2015.
  • Sergio Aguero has scored in each of his last six games at the Etihad in all competitions, netting 10 goals. He’s never scored in seven consecutive home games for Manchester City.

FAVOURITES FOR MCI VS LEI:  It’s hard to stop Manchester City at the moment. With Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Fabian Delph injured, the team still has the depth to play the same sublime quality of football. Kevin De Bruyne has elevated his game to an unmatchable level and to keep the Belgian quite, timely tackles and tight defence will be the need of the hour. Leicester’s numbers aren’t bad at the Etihad but without Riyad Mahrez, the team is assuredly missing the vision to create goal-scoring chances. Without their talisman playmaker, Leicester will have to bring their A-game to Etihad, if not they’ll be chasing shadows for an entire 90 minutes.
