Title challenging Manchester City will be the last to play this weekend as they host Leicester on Bank Holiday Monday.

It’s another must-win game for the Citizens if they want to keep their title challenge on track, but the match odds suggest they’ve not got a lot to worry about. City are on offer at 1.12, with the draw 8.50 and Leicester a massive 17.00 for the upset.

However, if you are planning on wading in on the short odds – be warned – as this season’s other clash between the sides ended Leicester 2-1 Man City.

They also met in the League Cup this season and that finished Leicester 1-1 Man City.

Okay, this repeat fixture last term resulted in an easy 5-1 home win for City – with Aguero netting four – but with nerves jangling the would-be champions might be in for a tricky game.

City have scored in all of their last 8 vs Leicester, while – as mentioned – Sergio Aguero – has done well when facing Leicester in recent seasons. The Man City hitman can be backed at 3.60 (1st) or 1.44 (anytime), while Sterling 5.00 (1st) or 1.80 (anytime) is sure to be another popular option.

Over 2.5 goals has paid out in 5 of the last 8 clashes and can be backed at just 1.30 though, so the better option might be to side with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at 1.80. This bet has paid out in 7 of the last 8 clashes in all comps and with Leicester heading into the game off a 3-0 win over Arsenal then confidence will be sky-high.

Jamie Vardy is, of course, the Foxes main man up top and if you fancy him to score then you’ll be rewarded at 13.00 (1st) or 4.00 (anytime).
