Live Streaming: Leicester City vs Manchester City (Premier League)
Leicester City and Manchester City are two teams in the English Premier League who had high expectations at the start of the season, but are performing way below their potential. Among the two, Manchester City still hold a respectable position in the league table and were successful in edging out wins even though they are far from convincing. Claudio Ranieri’s men on the other hand are having a miserable run and are under immense pressure after finding themselves 2 points above the relegation zone.
The Foxes are without a win in 5 Premier League matches with 2 draws and 3 losses. Their latest fixture was a trip to Sunderland which they lost 2-1, with all goals falling in the second half.
Manchester City had a tough fixture against Chelsea last weekend and they lost 3-1 squandering a lead. The match also saw City’s key players Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho receiving red cards. This was their first defeat in 7 matches. But they managed only 3 wins and 3 draws during the period which is a big blow to their title winning chances.

Leicester City vs Manchester City: Prediction
Despite both teams being way short of their usual best, City will still go in as slight favourites on the back of their strong head-to-head record. However, Pep Guardiola’s men must improve in taking their scoring chances. Leicester’s main problem this season is defending set-pieces. But their attack is also blunt with both Vardy and Mahrez struggling to replicate their form from last season.
