Opta Stats: Manchester City v Leicester

Opta Stats: Manchester City v Leicester

There is also the task of trying to overturn a 3-0 deficit at home to Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday, but the Scotland captain insists while there is hope they have a chance. It's worth noting Leicester actually beat City 2-1 on Boxing Day.

If we get to 97 points and don't win the league, then, of course, we'll be gutted but we can't have done much more.

Leicester Cit: The Foxes have been up and down all season, evident by the 15-6-15 record.

"In the league, yes, it is the most hard one for sure". But floating around mid table isn't what this team expects.

After the game, Klopp said: "The way Newcastle played, it was just hard to deal with in general".

Manchester City chief Guardiola is chasing back-to-back Premier League crowns, with their battle with Liverpool going down to the wire.

It is advantage City in arguably the greatest Premier League title race in history, with neither side having dropped points for two months. If you look at it now it's about investment and they're doing very, very well.' Three-and-a-half years after leaving, it would be neat if Rodgers now assists in delivering the title for Liverpool.

The title race is well and truly alive after Liverpool's late victor at Newcastle United on Saturday evening.

The Leicester manager ranks the 24-year-old as "clearly one of the best players in the world" and revealed this had been a stated aim for the forward from a young age. "Maybe they will have a chance to finish seventh and they will try to make a good game".

Pep Guardiola has lost two Premier League games against Leicester as Man City boss - only against Chelsea (3) has the Spaniard lost more in the competition.

"We want the same performance without conceding the goals".

He highlighted the former England striker's raw pace as a danger, saying: "His career speaks for itself, not just the last few games, but (lately) he's scored every single game".

Manchester City will be without Kevin Du Bruyne with Fernandinho doubtful for the match.

"For us it's about super compact pressing at the right moment and when you have the ball, playing quickly at pressure because you'll be pressed in different phases". Their opponents are missing the injured Daniel Amartey.

A Long Wait to End?

Leicester are looking to complete the top-flight double over Manchester City for the first time since the 1986-87 campaign, while they're also looking to do the double against the reigning top-flight champions for the first time since 1985-86 against Everton. Aguero is 8/13 (1.61) at BetVictor to score against Leicester.
