Watch Online: Leicester - Manchester City (Premier League) 29.10.2022 11:30 - Saturday
The 14th round of the Premier League will start with the meeting between Leicester and Manchester City. The two teams will face off at the King Power Stadium on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. "Citizens" have a serious advantage in this rivalry. Last season they won 0-1 here, and in Manchester they beat the Foxes 6-3.
Leicester have finally recovered from their shock start to the Premier League campaign. For a long time, the team was in the relegation zone and did not even have a win on its account. That all changed in his last five games, of which he managed to win three. This is truly impressive as he had taken just one point from the previous seven.
It all started at the beginning of the month, when the Foxes defeated Nottingham Forest 4-0 at their home stadium. A disappointing loss away to Bournemouth followed, as did a goalless draw with Crystal Palace. Leicester are also currently on a three-match run without conceding a goal after recording clean sweeps over Leeds and Wolverhampton.
Manchester City's recent dominance has waned. This applies mostly to the team's performance in the Champions League, where they failed to score in two consecutive matches. However, despite the goalless draws with Copenhagen and Borussia Dortmund, the English team has secured the first place in the group.
In the Premier League, the "citizens" are also not far from the leadership position. After playing 11 games, they are just two points behind leaders Arsenal. The main reason for this is the defeat to Liverpool in the middle of the month. The Merseysiders inflicted their first defeat on Manchester City, extending the Gunners' lead.
Erling Holland and company have been extremely productive this season. Manchester City's matches with Leicester also rarely disappoint, and the hosts are also in their best form. It is for this reason that I expect a goal show that will eventually be won by the "citizens".
