Leicester City v Manchester City Match Preview & Trends

Can the In-form Foxes dent City’s title hunt?

Back in September, Leicester shocked everyone, not by beating City but the manner in which they achieved their victory. A 2-5 thrashing proved a spectacular away win and a catalyst for the Foxes’ excellent form and high league positioning.

There has been a penalty awarded in 5 of the last 10 games between Leicester and Man City, with the last 3meetings having seen at least one penalty awarded. Leicester have only won one of their last 5 home games against Man City and have conceded at least one goal to the runaway leaders in the last 10 meetings. 

If Leicester City win, Brendan Rodgers’ side would reduce the gap with Manchester City to a 12-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of an 8-match winning streak away for Manchester City. Leicester have conceded at least one goal to Man City in the last 6 home games. 61% of Leicester City’s points have been earned away. The Foxes have scored 34% of their goals after the 75th minute and there has been a first-half goal scored in each of Leicester’s last 5 games in a row.

Manchester City have scored the opening goal in 83% of their matches and have been victorious in 73% of their games. The Cityzens have scored in 86% of their away matches, winning 71% of fixtures away from the Eithad. A City victory would increase their lead over Leicester City to 18 points in the league table, and it would be Pep Guardiola’s 9th consecutive away win.

Key trends

62% of Manchester City’s conceded goals were conceded at home.

Leicester City have picked up an average of 1.46 Points Per Game in their 13 matches played at home
