Leicester vs Man City Tips


Champions Manchester City will look to continue their rise up the English Premier League table when they face Leicester City after the international break. This fourth-round match will be played at the King Power Stadium in the early hours of Sunday Australian time.

Manchester City have bounced back from the opening day defeat to improve before the international break. Although there are doubts about the availability of South American players, this match should see some goal action. I am backing this match to produce over 2.5 goals while Ferran Torres is likely to continue his scoring form.

Ayoze Perez is suspended for this match, while Leicester will be missing Wesley Fofana, James Justin and Nampalys Mendy due to injuries. Both Jonny Evans and Jannik Vestergaard are improving and may be involved here.

Verdict

Manchester City have enjoyed recent success against Leicester at this venue. With Leicester missing some key personnel, this could end up in a win for the visitors.

I am backing the match to produce over 2.5 goals with Ferran Torres backed to continue his goal-scoring run.
