link Premier League PREVIEW: LEI v MCY

Saturday – Leicester City v Manchester City BT Sport 17:30

Both sides will be relieved their midweek results did not matter in their quest for Champions League qualification. Leicester’s poor form continued away to Porto, losing 5-0, whereas Man City looked unconvincing, drawing 1-1 at home to Celtic.

Leicester’s league form has left much to be desired. Read about TSS’ analysis as to why they are struggling HERE. Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are yet to officially sign up for this season, but there is no more perfect a game to do that than against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Iheanacho celebrates equalising against Celtic

After Sergio Aguero’s unbelievable outburst last week, the pressure of goalscoring will fall on the shoulders of 20-year-old Kelechi Iheanacho. The Nigerian has three goals to his name so far this season but more importantly has earnt the trust of Guardiola after playing the full 90 minutes and scoring against Celtic midweek. Yaya Toure looking fitter than any of the previous three seasons is a bonus as his quality is undoubted, and Kevin de Bruyne has the ability to unlock any defence, especially one looking as shaky as Leicester’s. City will be aiming to write their defeat to Chelsea off as a blip and get back on track for the title.

Leicester should be worried about relegation. City too strong. Man City to win 4-1.
