Manchester City Aims to Close Gap on Arsenal as They Face Leicester City

Manchester City will attempt to put some more pressure on Arsenal when they host Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening. The Citizens are expected to be in good spirits as they have not only demolished Bayer Munich 3-0 in their Champions League quarter-final in midweek, but prior to that they have also reduced the gap between them and Arsenal to only six points. That was the consequence of Arsenal drawing 2-2 with Liverpool and City’s 4-1 triumph over Southampton.

Closing the Gap

A win against Leicester in this clash will bring Pep Guardiola’s team just three points behind the Gunners, who won’t be in action until Sunday afternoon. It is difficult to see who can stop Manchester City now, especially as Leicester have been all over the place this season and are now involved in the relegation battle.

Leicester’s Struggles

The Foxes survival concerns have deepened after their 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth. They are heading to the Etihad in 19th place in the Premier League table, with the management having decided to appoint Dean Smith as their manager for the remainder of the season.

This is likely to be a tough start for him with Leicester, who have lost eight of their last nine games and 10 of their last 15. Smith’s previous experience includes being sacked by Aston Villa and taking Norwich City to relegation, so he would have to work hard to prove that he is the man who can get the job done in the Midlands.

Manchester City vs Leicester City Main Betting Tip: Man City To Win & Both Teams To Score

I believe Manchester City have everything they need to dominate this match against a struggling Leicester City side, who would have to look for safety points elsewhere. With the attack in top form, the Citizens are probably going to rip apart Leicester’s leaky defence in what should be a comfortable home win for the defending champions. The Foxes have the fourth-worst defensive record in the division and have shipped goals in their last 15 Premier League games.

Looking at the numbers, they are truly stellar, as Pep Guardiola’s men have won their last five games by at least three goals, netting a total of 24 goals in the period. At the Etihad, they have done even better, with 10 consecutive wins, and are surely well prepared for the challenge that lies ahead.

Potential for Goals from Both Sides

Backing Man City to win, however, will not deliver any value, so we have been looking a bit deeper to find an option that can return a decent amount. Despite their struggles, the Foxes have shown attacking prowess, as they have found the back of the net in four of their last five matches. They are also doing well on that front on the road, where they have scored 1.53 goals per game this season.

Their goals haven’t just been against low-table teams, as they have managed to score at least twice in four of their five visits to the top seven clubs this term.

Man City are likely to control the game, but expect them to take their foot off the gas in the second half if they have achieved a comfortable lead by then, considering they were involved in a difficult midweek affair against Bayern Munich. This could provide an opportunity for Leicester to score, making a win for Man City with both teams scoring a very appealing proposition..

Manchester City vs Leicester City Value Bet: Erling Haaland 3+ Shots On Target

Another intriguing bet is on Erling Haaland to record three or more shots on target. This option has been boosted by Betvictor at the moment of writing from 11/10 to 5/4, and it is something I suggest taking advantage of.

The numbers of the Norwegian striker for this season are unreal: he has scored an incredible 30 goals in 27 Premier League games and 11 goals in 7 Champions League games, where he has an average of 2.7 shots on target per game. Against one of the worst defences in the league, expect him to cause chaos once again and be likely to have at least 3 shots on target in this game.

Manchester City vs Leicester City Correct Score Prediction: Man City 4-1

I expect this to be the most one-sided affair of the Premier League weekend, with the Citizens likely dominating from the outset. Leicester do have a threat upfront and have been scoring consistently, so they might well find a consolation goal to make the passive a bit less humiliating.
