Tipster’s Angle

Manchester City has dominated this fixture against Leicester City over the years as they have won 14 of the last 20 head-to-head matches. Apart from that, this match expected not to see goals at both ends of the field.

Tip: Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.44

Leicester City is averaging 3.5 goals per match in the Premier League this season, while Manchester City is averaging 2.94 goals per match. Leicester City has scored an average of 1.75 goals per game, while Manchester City has scored an average of 2.44 goals per game. Aside from that, four of the last ten head-to-head meetings have resulted in over 2.5 goals, for a total of 28 goals and an average of 2.8 goals per match. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Leicester’s last ten games in all competitions, while over 2.5 goals have been scored in eight of Manchester City’s last ten games. In light of this, the Betway sportsbook has 1.44 odds on this match having above 2.5 goals.

Tip: Both Teams To Score – No @ 1.77

In five of the last eight head-to-head matches, either team kept a clean sheet. Also, two of the three head-to-head matches played last season had both teams not scoring in them. Apart from that, Manchester City kept a clean sheet in the reverse fixture played earlier this season. Manchester City has managed to keep a clean sheet in five of the last ten matches that they have played across competitions. Leicester City’s last Premier League match had both teams not scoring. So, it is very likely that either team will keep a clean sheet at 1.77 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


Manchester City will be looking to take complete advantage of the injury-prone Leicester City to keep their lead at the top of the table. Leicester City on the other hand will be looking for at least a draw or a reasonable defeat in order not to dent their goal difference.
