Leicester v Man City
Published: Saturday, 3rd April 2021 at 4:00 pm

Manchester City need just 14 points from a maximum 24 available to them to win the Premier League this season – and they could cut into that total on Saturday when they play Leicester at the King Power.


City are on cruise control and look all set to claim the title and focus their attention on the Champions League for the rest of the spring.

They responded to the 2-0 loss to rivals Manchester United back at the start of March by winning their next two Premier League fixtures and are the favourites to claim victory on Saturday too.

Leicester will pose a threat, however, with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho expected to lead the line for the Foxes here.

There is also hope James Maddison will be fit to feature, although boss Brendan Rodgers will certainly be without the influential Harvey Barnes due to injury. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Leicester v Man City on TV and online.

Leicester v Man City team news

Leicester: Barnes is out for Leicester but Maddison may prove fit enough to at least make the bench.

Rodgers could also have Cengiz Under and Ricardo Pereira fit, although James Justin and Wes Morgan are definitely sidelined.

Man City: Guardiola has no injury concerns heading into this encounter but the focus will be on whether or not Sergio Aguero features.

The Argentine will leave City after a decade at the club come June and has scored just one Premier League goal all season. Aguero could start here, although he is more likely to begin on the bench.

Our prediction: Leicester v Man City

Leicester will give this game a good shot and don’t be surprised if Vardy or the in-form Iheanacho get on the scoresheet.

But the way this City machine is running now, it’s hard to see how they will lose. The likes of Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus are playing at the top of their game, while Phil Foden is now a fixed member of that attack.

City will certainly score at the King Power and this game could come down to how Leicester respond. Rodgers will want to keep the tempo high but over 90 minutes the visitors are expected to edge it.

Our prediction: Leicester 1-2 Man City (8/1 at bet365)
