The Premier League champions, Manchester City, play their next game in their title defence season on the road to Leicester and with the current form of the sides it should be an easy win for City – they face-off in the Saturday lunchtime game.

The match betting backs this up with City at 1.25, despite being the away side, with the draw 6.50 and Leicester at 10.00.

Last season City only won this game 0-1 though, but they did take 6 points off Leicester last term in the league and have lost only 2 of their last 16 away games vs the Foxes in all comps.

Having said that, Leicester have a 50% home record of not losing in their last 8 at home vs Man City in all competitions, but you still feel City will have too much firepower and it will be a shock if they are not getting all three points here.

Pep Guardoila has said he’s got a few selection issues with Cancelo and Haaland having a bit of flu in their game last week but battling on. However, Haaland, who has bagged an incredible 17 goals in the league this season.

Haaland is on offer at 3.00 (first) or 1.50 (anytime), while looking at the Leicester players – Vardy has scored 9 goals in the last 14 head-to-heads so might be worth an interest at 11.00 (1st) or 4.00 (anytime).

Other betting options might be the Under 2.5 Goals at 2.75 as this has paid out in 4 of the last 6 head-to-heads, but with both teams NOT scoring in 67% of the last 6 games too, then this is how we are going to play this one at 1.95.
