Premier League leaders Manchester City will be looking to consolidate their position today as they travel to face 12th-placed Leicester.
Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:
A revived Leicester face the runaway league leaders from Manchester in this game. The home side have found their stride and are unbeaten in their last 5 Premier League (PL) games, after suffering 4 defeats in their first 6 matches.
Manchester City are breaking records left, right and centre at the moment. Since the 5th of April, the Citizens have played 27 games, winning 20 and drawing 7! Virtually unstoppable so far in the PL, they have won 10 of 11 so far, scoring a staggering 38 goals (3.45 goals per match on average).
Although City are superior in the scored goals department, the teams share a penchant for goals in their matches – only 2 of 22 matches involving these teams have ended with under 1.5 goals.
Sergio Aguero, who recently became Manchester City’s all time top scorer, continued his fine form with another goal against Arsenal before the international break… where he scored goal no. 35 for Argentina, putting him above Diego Maradona in the national scoring charts! Naturally, he is the PL top scorer at the moment, with 8 goals.Top 5 Premier League players in September’s last weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – A fresh Premier League fixture just ended, which means we can talk about the Top 5 best players of September’s last weekend.After a fresh…
Just a word of warning! Aguero was hospitalised after a half-time incident during Tuesday night’s friendly with Nigeria. He has undergone medical tests and has been cleared for this game. “Sergio never lost consciousness, and was taken to hospital for precautionary medical checks,” according to a club spokesperson.
Despite all the plaudits coming their way, City have one of the worst disciplinary records in the league so far, accruing 2 red and 20 yellow cards, a contrast to the squeaky clean Foxes, who’ve only seen 12 yellow cards all season.
Leicester: R. Huth (ankle injury), M. James (Achilles tendon injury), Ad. Silva (unregistered)
Manchester City: B. Mendy (knee injury), N. Otamendi (suspension), V. Kompany (doubtful).
