Man City face Leicester
Champions-elect Manchester City travel to the King Power Stadium to face Champions League chasing Leicester City.
The Foxes are third in the Premier League on 56 points and have a seven-point cushion over West Ham in fifth. Last season they threw away what seemed like a guaranteed top-four spot but history doesn’t seem like it’s going to repeat itself.
The injuries to key players have occurred again but Brendan Rodgers’ side have recorded back-to-back wins and look more robust.
There was a major test of character when Leicester trailed at half time to Brighton but a change of system at the break sparked a turnaround and they won 2-1.
Iheanacho on a roll
Kelechi Iheanacho is the man in form for Leicester with seven goals in his last four starts in all competitions and a hat-trick in his last league game against Sheffield United.
He will be hoping to continue his rich vein of form against his former club.
Man City form
Manchester City now have two months to make history. They are destined to win the Premier League; holding a 14-point lead with Man United having a game in hand.
The Blues are in the final of the Carabao Cup, semi finals of the FA Cup and the quarter-finals of the Champions League. It is a realistic task to win all four but a monumental one all the same.
Pep Guardiola’s side first have to focus on their trip to Leicester and try to avenge their 5-2 defeat at the beginning of the season. Man City have conceded just eight away goals in the Premier League this season.
Aguero’s last dance
Sergio Aguero, City’s leading scorer in their history, announced he was leaving the club at the end of the season. It didn’t come as a surprise with his contract running down and injury preventing him featuring much this season.
The striker has played an enormous part in the club’s rise and will be remembered for scoring the famous stoppage-time winner against QPR to win the club’s first league title since 1976.
Man City have won two and lost two of their last four league away games against Leicester. The Foxes are looking to complete their first double over City since the 1886/87 season.
