Manchester City - Leicester City

PICK: Manchester City 1st half AH -0,75 @1,89 PINNACLE 3/10

Match between 4th placed Manchester City and 9th placed Leicester City will be played on Etihad Stadium in Manchester, where Citizens lost too many important points this season, and even if they've created dozens of chances in each game, they were too poor in both boxes.

Pep Guardiola is welcoming back Aguero and Stones and even if I am not sure if they will start or not, Manchester City will be able to send strong lineup on the pitch. WIth Sane, Silva and De Bruyne in good form and with prolific Jesus in attack, this team looks electric again. Except Bravo and Gundogan, everyone is ready for revanche.

Leicester changed coach and with Shakespeare on the bench they saved themselves from relegation positions in the league, they knockout Sevilla in Champions league, and their season won't be as bad as it looked. They will miss Drinkwater and Wes Morgan, while also Huth is questionable, so their defensive part of the team will be weaker.

With Vardy's pace, they will be dangerous for City for sure, but I believe that they have learned things in first match, and that they will be much more careful today. Leicester is actually not playing for anything serious and especially because of result in Leicester I expect eager and more motivated Manchester City, who will press them high from the first minute. They will have at least 3-4 really good chances in first half and with Kompany back their defence is much much stronger and trustworthy, so I expect them to make the difference with Foxes already in first half.

HT: 2-1half win
