Leicester hosts Manchester City at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night in a top of the table Premier League clash.
Leicester suffered just their second top-flight defeat of the season at Liverpool on Boxing Day, as the Foxes went down to a 1-0 defeat. The only goal of the game came from Reds substitute Christian Benteke, who had come onto the pitch in the first period when compatriot Divock Origi picked-up an injury.
Due to other results the Foxes remained top of the table and are still two points clear of second place Arsenal, although Manchester City would go above the Foxes with a win in this clash.
Manchester City enjoyed a rather more enjoyable Boxing Day, as the Citizens defeated struggling Sunderland 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Manuel Pellegrini’s side raced into a three goal lead in the first 22 minutes through goals from Raheem Sterling, Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony.
Kevin De Bruyne added a fourth early in the second half. Italian forward Fabio Borini got a goal back for the visitors just before the hour mark, but it was just a consolation goal.
The Citizens are third in the table just three points behind their opponents on Tuesday night.

Leicester v Manchester City Match Prediction

Manchester City has struggled away from home in recent games and they have scored just once in their last three games on their travels. Leicester were in superb form until that trip to Liverpool.
The Foxes have lost some of their momentum with that defeat and I have a feeling that City will pick-up a victory in this game to end their travel sickness of late.
