Live BT Sport 1 / BT Sport 1 HD / BT Sport Ultra HD
Premier League title favourites Manchester City face one of their nearest rivals in Leicester City on Saturday, with the visiting Foxes three points above the Citizens.
City made hard work of a 1-0 win at struggling Sunderland in midweek and the team from the Midlands could provide an even tougher test in this clash. The home side have a good home record, having won 16 of their last 19 games at the Etihad Stadium and can be backed at odds of 8/13 at Totesport
City may not have been at their best, but star striker Sergio Aguero has hit form in recent weeks, hitting five goals in his last five games. He is odds of 3/1 with Ladbrokes to be first goalscorer, which is not great odds, but a decent bet considering his form.
Leicester’s surprise title challenge seems to keep rolling on and a 2-0 home win over Liverpool last time out kept them top of the table. England striker Jamie Vardy scored a brace against Liverpool, one of which was a contender for goal of the season.
The striker has rediscovering his goal scoring touch in recent games, having scored three goals in his last two league appearances. The former Halifax Town star can be backed at odds of 7/1 at Ladbrokes to open the scoring.
The Foxes have become a difficult team to beat this season and have kept five clean sheets in their last six Premier League outings. Claudio Ranieri’s men can be backed at odds of 5/1 at William Hill to leave Manchester with maximum points.
My big tips for this game are to back the draw at odds of 17/5 with BetVictor.
Vardy also looks good value to open the scoring at odds of 7/1 with Ladbrokes.
