      Leicester vs Manchester City Predictions

      Leicester suffered only their second loss of the Premier League season on Boxing Day as Liverpool stopped them from scoring for the first time since May.

      This stopped them from extending their lead at the top of the Premier League as Arsenal also lost, and also let Manchester City close the gap between the two sides to three points.

      This means that a defeat to the visitors on Tuesday would see Manchester City leapfrog them in the table and send the leaders as low as 3rd.

      Leicester are still in very good form despite their defeat though. They have won three, drawn one, and lost one of their last five Premier League games and scored nine goals in total, which takes their goals tally in the Premier League to an impressive 37 for the season.

      Coincidentally, Manchester City have also scored 37 times in the league this season, making them the joint highest scoring sides in the table.

      Four of these 37 came on Boxing Day when they thrashed Sunderland 4-1, with Kevin De Bruyne absolutely running the show by having a hand in all the goals.

      This took Manchester City’s record to three goals and two losses in their last five matches in all competitions.

      This all makes for a cracking looking game on Tuesday as the two highest scoring teams in the Premier League face up.

      Six of Leicester’s last eight matches have ended with three or more goals scored, and they have conceded in all but two of them as well. This isn’t to mention the fact that they have scored in all but one match this season.

      Joe Hart has picked the ball out of his own net at least once in each of Manchester City’s last nine games, and seven of these nine games have ended with more than two goals in total.

      This makes odds of 5/6 for Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score look very good value to me, and I’m also going to back a 2-2 correct score prediction at 12/1 due to Leicester’s home advantage.
