Manchester City reduced the point gap at the top of the English Premier League table and now host Leicester City on Saturday evening.

Manchester City reduced the point gap at the top of the English Premier League table and now host Leicester City on Saturday evening.

Man City eased past Bayern Munich in a 3-0 midweek Champions League win to add onto their 4-1 demolition of Southampton last weekend.

They are in second place with 67 points, six behind leaders Arsenal but with a game in hand.

A win here for Pep Guardiola’s side will be their 10th consecutive in all competitions, scoring 34 goals in that run.

Meanwhile, Leicester are in a different battle at the other end of the EPL log, languishing in 19th place with 25 points.

The Foxes have not won in 9 games, with their last triumph coming in a shock 4-1 win against Tottenham on February 11.

They look destined for relegation this season and this will be an almost impossible task for them to muster a win away at the Champions.

Manchester City have won their last four games and 10 of their last 12 games against Leicester City in the Premier League.

A miserable run of seven defeats and one draw in their last eight matches for Leicester makes this almost a guaranteed victory for the hosts.

Man City look all set to get a 10th straight win here to keep the pressure on title hopefuls Arsenal. Do you agree?
