Even though Leicester City have been able to hold Guardiola’s team to successive 1-1 draws at the King Power Stadium, there will be a stratospheric amount of motivation within City coming into this match. The defending champions are four points behind Liverpool in the table and City cannot afford to lose more points. Even though there will be high pressing from Leicester just like in the game against Chelsea, our preview would go with a win for the visitors.

Correct Score odds
Manchester City has struggled in recent games against Leicester and the team will have to pass through a sea of players in order to score goals. However, Leicester’s performance is expected to suffer in the second half after having been through a tough 90 minutes only during the weekend. Our correct score prediction expects City to get a 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Manchester City may have scored multiple goals past many opponents in the Premier League but Leicester City happen to be an opponent who have done well on this front. Leicester have conceded over 2.5 goals only twice against City in the last six meetings across all competitions. Yet, since both teams are expected to score, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero returns to the starting line-up after having missed the last few weeks due to a combination of injuries and tiredness. Gabriel Jesus has been substituting for the Argentine over the last couple of games, but the lack of major impact from the Brazilian should see Aguero back to the starting line-up. After scoring four goals against Leicester just under a year ago, Aguero is our pick in the first goalscorer prediction.
