Premier League powerplay: Manchester City - Leicester City


It would seem that Liverpool is headed straight for the Premier League title, but the race is not won yet with the season only about halfway! This Saturday, two challengers meet head-on in Manchester City – Leicester City. The title defender or the underdog: who will rise up to the challenge? Let’s figure out if the info at hand tells us anything we can use to our advantage when placing a bet this weekend!

Manchester City – Leicester City (Saturday December 21, 6.30 p.m.)

Home team Manchester City is defending last year’s Premier League title, but currently it lies in third place, 4 points behind second-placed Leicester City. The Foxes seem on their way to repeat their remarkable stunt season 2015/2016, when they won the championship in what’s probably the greatest upset in modern Premier League history. Leicester City can still count on Jamie Vardy for the goals and can find inspiration from in-form Youri Tielemans.

Whatever happens, the Foxes will surely need to bring everything to the table if they want to edge out a victory against an equally stellar Manchester City outfit. The Citizens will look to Sergio Agüero for the goals, who will in turn look to Kevin De Bruyne for the amazing assists he’s been handing out casually this season. Though there are points to be made towards Liverpool, the top three will remain as it is regardless of the outcome of this Premier League powerplay...
