Manchester City Vs Leicester City Live Online Commentary
Pep Guardiola’s side was looking like a team with a guaranteed place in the Premier League top 4 but now they have only a 3 points cushion ahead of Arsenal. There is no more room for mistakes until the end of the season and the pressure on Manchester City is huge. They failed in all of the cup tournaments they played and losing the top 4 place would be a huge disaster. At the moment, the Citizens looks in decent form and are unbeaten in 5 matches. Still the draw against Middlesbrough raised some eyebrows. At Etihad Manchester City have lost just a single match for the whole season and the defeat came against leaders and most probable new champions Chelsea. In the most recent Premier League fixture City got an all-important victory over Crystal Palace by hammering them with a 5–0 scoreline. As regards team news: Sergio Aguero and John Stones are both major doubts for Manchester City, whilst Claudio Bravo and Ikay Gundogan won’t be seen until next season.
On the flip side, Leicester City despite winning the league were headed to relegation at some point of this season. The swap of their manager Claudio Ranieri with Shakespeare proved to be a great decision. Shakespeare lifted the team making 5 wins on the bounce and reaching the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Sevilla. The Foxes come into this match with 2 consecutive victories. Leicester toiled hard to take away a minimal away victory against West Brom followed by an impressive 3–0 home win versus Watford. Ndidi, Mahrez and Albrighton ensured the comfortable margin after huge mistakes from Watford defense. As for Leicester’s team news: team captain Wes Morgan is doubtful for this game, whilst Nampalys Mendy and Molla Wague remain sidelined.
