Leicester vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: 29 October 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Leicester and Manchester City will raise the curtain on Matchday No 14 in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon with the fixture at King Power Stadium.
This will be a serious test for the defending champions although the bookies consider them heavy favorites on the occasion.
The Citizens have actually won only two of five league games on the road this term. They did not shine in the mid-week’s UEFA Champions League affair either, playing only a goalless draw against Borussia Dortmund away on German soil.
Erling Haaland and Joao Cancelo had problems with flu this week, while the Norwegian superstar forward also got a knock on Tuesday against his former team Borussia Dortmund which is why he was subbed off at the half time by Pep Guardiola.
When you combined this with Leicester’s flying form in the recent weeks, you get a very exciting matchup for the start of the Gameweek.
The Foxes got off to a horrendous start to the season but they managed two wins and a draw in the previous three league affairs to move away from the red zone in the standings.
Brendan Rodgers’ troops were particularly impressive last Sunday when they demolished Wolves 0-4 away at Molineux Stadium.
It was also the third consecutive clean sheet for Danny Ward as Leicester’s back line looks much more solid with Wout Faes at the center-back.
Leicester vs Manchester City Head-to-head
- Manchester City have a negative record at King Power Stadium where they won 17, drew 10, and lost 19 of the previous 46 meetings with Leicester.
- The Citizens, however, picked up two wins in two clashes against Leicester in the previous term of Premier League.
- Interestingly, only one of the previous four head to head outings between these rivals provided three or more goals.
