On December 10 2016 at 17:30 in the regular game of the 15th matchday of the English Premier League at the King Power Stadium the local Leicester play against Manchester City.
The results of the Leicester in the current season are very surprising for most of the experts and the fans. The current champions of the EPL are now in the second half of the table and it looks like some kind of surrealism. The loss to Sunderland 2:1 in the latest game prolonged their winless series to make it 4 games in a raw already. Before that the Foxes drew Middlesbrough 2:2, lost to Watford 2:1 and West Bromwich 1:2, drew Tottenham 1:1. As a result, Leicester have 13 points after 14 games played and take the 16th place in the table with 17:24 goal difference. In fact, they are just two points above the relegation zone.
Manchester City should have become one of the strongest clubs of the world when Guardiola and a few top quality players came. Yet, it’s not actually so. The loss to Chelsea 1:3 in the latest match broke their 6 games long lossless series. Before that Manchester city outplayed Burnley 1:2, Crystal Palace 1:2 and West Bromwich 0:4, drew Middlesbrough 1:1. As a result, with 30 points gained in the 14 games of the national championship Manchester City take the 4th place in the standings with 30:15 goal difference.
Manchester City have a huge advantage in victories in the history of head-to-heads of the teams. Yet, in the previous season at the King Power Stadium the teams drew and in the second round Leicester won 1:3. Yet, in the current season the champions show very poor performance in the national league and seem to be concentrating on the Champions League. We have no doubt that Manchester City will manage to outplay this Leicester.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to win.
