Man City vs Leicester Match Preview Saturday 15th April 2023

Dean Smith Leicester

🕗 Saturday 15th April, 12:30 GMT

This Saturday in the Premier League’s late kickoff, we see 2nd-placed Manchester City take on 19th-placed Leicester in a match where both teams need the three points for very different reasons.

Manchester City’s form

Lately, Manchester City have picked up form recently as they look to crank up the pressure on Arsenal’s title charge. In the Premier League, Manchester City are in the midst of a brilliant unbeaten run. They have won seven and drawn one of their last eight Premier League games. In their previous Premier League game against Southampton, Manchester City won 4-1, where we saw Erling Haaland officially reach the 30-goal mark for the season after scoring a brace in that game. Manchester City also beat Bayern Munich earlier this week in the Champions League at the Etihad 3-0, thanks to goals from Erling Haaland and Rodri. Manchester City have a huge Premier League game coming up on the 26th of April against Arsenal and that game could well determine where the Premier League title ends up this season.

Leicester's Relegation battle

Leicester City are currently sitting 19th in the Premier League which saw Brendan Rodgers relieved of his managerial duties due to their poor form this season. Some fans are putting their form this season down to the club’s owners, as they didn’t invest in the squad in January. Leicester City are currently without a win in their last eight games and will need to sort out their form and start picking up points if they want to beat the drop into the Championship next season.

Head to head

In the previous five Premier League meetings between the two teams, Manchester City have won three, with Leicester winning two. Previously this season, the two teams faced each other at the King Power. On this occasion, Manchester City came out on top.

Crucial players

Manchester City’s £100m man, Jack Grealish, has recently picked up form since the World Cup. This season Grealish has eleven goal contributions, scoring five and assisting six. Compare that to his first season in Manchester City colours, Grealish was struggling for consistent form and was playing with a lot of pressure on his shoulders that the £100M price tag brought. The Englishman is starting to prove the football fans wrong and is showing them why he can be a crucial player for City.

Leicester City have a brilliant attacking midfielder in James Maddison. The Englishman has fifteen goal contributions this season, scoring nine and assisting six. Maddison has been Leicester’s best player this season and will attract interest from multiple big clubs this summer.

Newcastle's form under Eddie Howe

Since Eddie Howe arrived at the club in November 2021, Premier League fans have seen a drastic change in how Newcastle play. Eddie Howe took over when Newcastle were rock bottom of the Premier League, and he guided them to safety, finishing 11th in the league, 14 points above the relegation zone. Newcastle this season have impressed many people as no one would have expected them to be sitting in third and pushing for the Champions League places. Newcastle have won their last five Premier League games.
