Manchester City vs Leicester City - Premier League Preview and Odds

May 06, 2019 20:00pm - Etihad Stadium (Manchester)

Premier League

The Premier League title race enters its final week with two teams still in contention. Reigning champions Manchester City hold the advantage over Liverpool and know that victory in their last two games will seal a second-straight crown. First up is a clash against a Leicester City side rejuvenated under the stewardship of former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

Pep Guardiola`s men have skipped effortlessly through a fixture list littered with potential banana skin so far, seeing off the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Burnley to keep destiny in their own hands.

Of the two games they have left (the other is a trip to Brighton and Hove Albion) this one looks the trickiest as Leicester have lost just one of their last seven matches, winning six and drawing the other. They look a different proposition since Brendan Rodgers arrived and the former Reds manager would love to have a say in the title proceedings as he seeks to revive the fortunes of the 2016 Premier League champions.

Jamie Vardy has scored nine goals since the new gaffer arrived and needs two more to reach 20 for the season. What`s more, Leicester fans will remember fondly their Boxing Day victory over the Sky Blues at the King Power Stadium. Whatever form City are in, this game is the one they will be most worried about.

Having said that, it is hard to make a case for anything other than a home win. This City team seem to have the ability to do exactly what is necessary to get the job done. Their efficiency is frightening and they haven`t missed a beat since the wobble at St. James` Park in January.

Betting odds and tips

You won`t get a decent price on a Home Win but there are some other options worth looking at. As mentioned Jamie Vardy is the league`s in-form striker and will be keen to reach the 20-goal benchmark. The Foxes frontman can be backed at a price of 13/5 to score anytime. The Both Teams to Score bet also looks tempting at a price of 4/5.

You can Vardy to score anytime at 13/5 and Both Teams to Score at 4/5.
