Manchester City handles the pressure well, given that it must win every match. They had succumbed to the pressure in the Champions League and have suffered a painful elimination in the quarter-finals by Tottenham, which managed to win them and that was Manchester City's only defeat lately. They lost the last time in the Premier League near the end of January and since then they played 12 matches and won each and every of them. Very few remember when the reigning champion drew the last time, and in total the City drew just two times so far this season.
The won last three matches with a clean sheet, and they won two derbies. They partially revenged to Tottenham for elimination from the Champions League, so then they defeated their city rival Manchester United at Old Trafford by 2-0. In the previous round they had plenty of unexpected problems in away match with Burnley. The home team fought back for more than an hour and then Aguero scored the only goal. The only out of action is de Bruyne, while stopper Stones could return to the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko – Gundogan, D. Silva, B. Silva – Sterling, Aguero, L. Sane
Leicester still hopes to end up at the seventh place and reach the Europa League. It is possible that the place will not mean reaching the European scene but Leicester won’t give up now, despite difficult opponent. They play quite well lately and out of previous seven matches they lost just one. It was a costly defeat, since they lost to Newcastle at home. The match marked the end of four-game winning streak, but after that Leicester again played two matches without losing a single one.
They were trailing behind against West Ham two times but they pulled-off 2-2 in the end, while in the previous round they outclassed Arsenal 3-0 in front of their fans. Leicester scored all goals in the last half hour of match, although they were left with a player more on the pitch near the end of first half, which certainly helped. After draw with West Ham manager Rodgers made only one change in the team and D. Gray moved on the bench. Given how they played against Arsenal, it is quite logical that no changes take place now and the same players go on the pitch.
Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – R. Pereira, J. Evans, Maguire, Chilwell – Ndidi, Albrighton, Tielemans, Choudhury, Maddison – Vardy
Manchester City vs Leicester PICK
Manchester City is an absolute favourite to win and anything but victory of the home team would be a great surprise but it doesn’t mean that Leicester will surrender in advance. The guests have their plans and will give their best to surprise and given their shape it won’t be surprising if they score a goal or two.
