With the league leaders Liverpool galloping towards the Premier League title, this game will play a key role in deciding which of these two teams will finish 2nd come May.
The Foxes have enjoyed a stellar season and currently find themselves only 4 points behind Pep Guardiola’s men, a position not many thought they’d be in with a quarter of the season remaining.
However, with it’s been almost a month since Leicester last tasted victory in any competition, they are clearly the underdogs going into Saturday night’s late kick-off. Since their 1-0 win over Brentford in the FA Cup in January, the King Power Stadium residents have drawn both of their games which they played on either side of February’s winter break.
The poor form of his weekend’s hosts will undoubtedly be music to the ears of Guardiola whose own side has won just two of its last four games in the league. Also, with City traveling to Spain to face Real Madrid in the R16 clash of this season’s Champions League next week, it would be interesting to see which starting line-up the Spaniard might choose on Saturday.
