Leicester v Man City odds – Pearson looks to put bad week behind him



A horribly out of form Leicester City host the Premier League champions Manchester City with the latest odds suggesting a very easy win for Pellegrini’s side this weekend.

Leicester’s winless run was extended to nine Premier League matches last time out, as they went down away to Aston Villa.

Leonardo Ulloa opened the scoring for Leicester, however Ciaran Clark levelled minutes later for the hosts.

With the match looking set to finish level, Alan Hutton scored his first Villa goal to earn his side all three points.

Yaya Toure scored the only goal as City beat Everton 1-0 in the Premier League, although Sergio Aguero was forced off early through injury.

Needing at least a score draw away to Roma, Manuel Pellegrini’s men put in one of their best performances of the season to win and progress into the last 16.

Samir Nasri opened the scoring with a stunning effort, before Pablo Zabaleta sealed the victory late on.

Leicester have lost just one of the last five league meetings against Manchester City, although they’ve met just six times in 20 years.

Despite that stat, Manchester City have never lost a Premier League match away to Leicester City.

Leicester v Man City Team news

Leicester will be without Kasper Schmeichel who has been ruled out for at least four weeks with a broken metatarsal.

Ben Hamer will deputise for the keeper, meaning Schmeichel won’t get to face his former employers.

Wes Morgan will return from a ban, whilst Paul Konchesky’s dismissal at Villa was rescinded so he is free to play.

Manchester City are confident they will be able to call upon Vincent Kompany once again.

Yaya Toure will return following a Champions League ban, whilst Frank Lampard may also come in for City.

Edin Dzeko will come in for the injured Aguero up front, whilst the likes of Bacary Sagna and Stevan Jovetic will be on the bench.

Leicester: Hamer; Simpson, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky; Mahrez, Cambiasso, James, Drinkwater, Vardy; Ulloa
Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Mangala, Clichy; Fernando, Lampard; Navas, Toure, Nasri; Dzeko
