The Week 14 match between Leicester and Manchester City will take place on October 29 at the King Power Stadium.
Brendan Rodgers’ side, after dropping to last place in the standings, transformed themselves dramatically and had a three-match unbeaten streak in the league in which they did not allow a single goal. After a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace, the team beat Leeds (2-0) and Wolverhampton (4-0). In 3 or more consecutive games in the APL, Leicestershire has not conceded since November 2019. It is also worth noting Leicester’s home games, the team at King Power in the championship does not lose and does not miss also in 3 consecutive games (2 wins and 1 draw).
After their first loss of the season to Liverpool, the team managed to beat Brighton 3-1 at home. That allowed them to cut their lead over top seed Arsenal to two points. Besides the fact that Manchester City scores the most in the league with an average of 3.3 goals per game, the team’s matches in the championship are the most entertaining in the APL with 4.3 goals. The away league game between Leicester and Manchester City will take place on October 29th at the King Power Stadium.
The upcoming match is of certain interest, despite the fact that the opponents are at different poles of the standings. Some of the best attacking lines in the league are facing each other, with the Mancunians ranked first in offense and the Leicestershires ranked sixth. At the same time, it is noteworthy that Leicester’s defensive play is abysmal; only Bournemouth concede less than Brendan Rodgers’ charges in the league.
In their confrontations in the APL, the teams occasionally fire off superproductive encounters. “Manchester City” in the last draw won with a score of 6:3, another victory for the “citizens” came in February 2018 – 5-1, but in the season 2020/21 Leicestershire won with a score of 5:2 (all games were held at the Etihad). Despite the fact that the rivals have not scored more than 3 goals in 5 games in a row at the King Power, we assume that this time the teams will once again give a spectacular duel.
