Manchester City will get one step closer towards the Premier League title when they take on Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night. City are two wins away from securing the league title irrespective of Liverpool’s results as they hold a two-point advantage over the Reds. City do not have the Champions League distraction, unlike the Reds. Meanwhile, Leicester City are hoping to finish seventh in the league table and potentially qualify for the Europa League next season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Manchester City were able to come away with a hardfought 1-0 victory over Burnley last weekend. Sergio Aguero’s 20th goal of the campaign came with very fine margins as it was decided by goal-line technology.
Leicester City came up with an impressive performance to beat Arsenal 3-0 at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes capitalised on Arsenal being down to 10 men following Maitland-Niles’ red card.
The reverse fixture between the two clubs produced a 2-1 victory for Leicester City in surprising fashion. This defeat on Boxing Day is only the fourth league loss for Manchester City this season. City finished the game with 10 men after Fabian Delph’s red card. Manchester City overpowered Leicester with a 5-1 victory in the recent meeting at the Etihad Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Manchester City.

Guardiola’s team will know that they will lift the Premier League title at the end of the season by just winning the last two league matches. It will not be easy with Foxes doing very well on the counter-attack under Brendan Rodgers. City’s possession style of football will play into the hands of Leicester when it comes to counter attacks, but City’s superior quality will have its say in the end. Our preview would go with a win for City, who are aiming for a 13th successive victory.

Manchester City vs Leicester City draw odds: 8.50
Leicester City win odds: 17.00
Correct Score odds
City will be playing two days after Liverpool’s game and this will potentially increase the pressure on the team if Liverpool get a victory. Leicester are capable of scoring with James Maddison and Jamie Vardy in excellent form. However, City have been quite spectacular at home with almost 3 goals scored per game on average in recent matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a Manchester City 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Manchester City could still end the campaign with a remarkable 100 league goals as the team are on 94 goals for the campaign. City have scored almost twice the number of goals managed by Leicester (51), but both teams carry a lot of attacking threat coming into the game. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero has been able to come up with 20 league goals for five consecutive seasons. The Argentine’s statistics are spectacular and he has five goals in as many games against Leicester. However, four of those goals have come in one match. Aguero or Raheem Sterling have opened the scoring in five out of the last eight home games. The latter has experienced a slender dip in form. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Sergio Aguero.
