A BLUNDERBUSS

Manchester City have won to nil in each of their last three games, scoring an average of 4 goals per game and have become firm favorites for the Premier League title after taking advantage of their rivals' slips in recent weeks.

Manchester City have 44 points and are 3 points ahead of Liverpool who are on 41 points. And Leicester City in 9th with 22 points and is 6 points behind first with European aspirations.

Manchester City scored 44 goals so far and is the second highest scoring team. Liverpool scored 50 goals. And something that is striking is the defense that has conceded only 9 goals and is the team that conceded the fewest goals.

9:38 AM24 days ago

LEICESTER CITY TEAM SUMMARY

Leicester gave a good match with Liverpool in the English League Cup, but failed to advance to the semifinals (3-4 after penalty shootout). Yes, as usual, vardy gave some great soccer, but it was not enough for a positive result. In the Championship, Rogers Halls are still not in the best shape. After 16 rounds, the Club has only the ninth line and 22 points in the piggy bank. Note that the boys have gaps in the defensive plan.
9:37 AM24 days ago

MANCHESTER CITY TEAM SUMMARY

The "Citizens" show a powerful offensive soccer, thanks to which they scored 11 goals in two previous matches: 7-0 with Leeds and 4-0 with Newcastle. To date, Guardiola's protégés lead the standings with 44 points by 18 points. It is worth noting that the Club has the best goal difference scored and lost +35.

Watch out for this Leicester City player:

City's standard bearer and the team's star scorer, Jamie Vardy will be the one the Azzuri defense will have to watch out for. The 34-year-old center forward has already come a long way in the best league in the world, he has won almost everything with Leicester and has managed to establish himself as one of the idols of the fans, since his debut he has played 393 games as a starter, has broken the net 181 times and has assisted on 78 occasions. With more than 30,000 minutes played, the Sheffield born will be one of the players who could tip the balance in favor of the Foxes at any minute.

8:37 AM24 days ago

Watch out for this Manchester City player:

Joao Cancelo has become one of the fundamental pieces that Pep Guardiola owns, the right-back has gone from strength to strength since his arrival in the Premier League being an undisputed starter and increasing much more and much more his value in the transfer market. Last season he was selected in the best eleven of the English league where he stood out for playing 28 games as a starter, scoring 2 goals and contributing with 3 assists, he is also one of the most experienced figures of the Portuguese national team, so for this match, Cancelo will be the player to follow for the possible problems he could cause Tottenham when attacking.

About The Stadium

The City of Manchester Stadium (City of Manchester Stadium in English), known since 2011 as Etihad Stadium for sponsorship reasons, also known as COMS or Eastlands, is a stadium located in the city of Manchester, which is the official stadium of Manchester City. It was originally designed for Manchester's failed bid to host the 2000 Summer Olympics. The stadium was eventually built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games at a construction cost of £110 million. After the completion of the games, the stadium was converted into a soccer ground and became the regular home of Manchester City Football Club, which plays in the FA Premier League. Manchester City left its former Maine Road ground in 2003, signing a lease whereby it could play its home games at the City of Manchester Stadium for 250 years.

8:07 AM24 days ago

The Foxes are wounded

Leicester City is wounded for this match, the Foxes faced Liverpool at Anfield in the quest to advance to the semifinals of the Carabao Cup, however, after having gone ahead very early on the scoreboard and seeming to have everything under control, the Red's returned to the duel and tied everything in the match's delirium. With the score even, the tie had to be decided in a penalty shootout and with a spectacular save by the Red's goalkeeper, the Foxes were eliminated from the competition. With no Cup or Europa League, Leicester will be looking to stay alive in the Premier League, climb up the table and get into the European places in order to return to international competitions.
8:02 AM24 days ago

Looking to get back to winning ways

The team led by Pep Guardiola will seek to continue as the current monarch of the Premier League after having regained the leadership and so far remain as leaders after what they have done, however, they are forbidden to stumble because a simple defeat could complicate things since Liverpool is only 3 points away and could overtake the Citizens by goal difference, it is worth remembering that in the 2018-2019 season, the situation was almost similar and only one point ended up decreeing the Citizens champions over the Red's. Likewise, at the moment they have the second best offense of the championship so it will not be expected that for this duel they will bring out all the arsenal they have to secure the three points at home and with their people

7:57 AM24 days ago

A great match for the halfway point of the season

The mid-season is here and will have one of the best matches so far this season with Manchester City hosting the Foxes of Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola's team has been working like a real sweeper as it has broken the record of most goals scored in the first half of the campaign, also, they managed to snatch the lead from Chelsea and stay above Liverpool, the team that is their closest pursuer. Likewise, the Citizens qualified as first to the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, their only failure so far being their elimination against the Hammers in the Carabao Cup on penalties. On the other side, the Foxes are hurting as they were eliminated in midweek by Liverpool at Anfield, after taking an early lead in the match, the Red's came back from behind to equalize at the last minute through Minamino and seal their defeat in the penalty shootout, now, out of the Carabao Cup and Europa League, their only goal will be to concentrate on the Premier League and try to get a place in the European competition if they do not want to disappoint their fans.
