Our football match prediction:
King Power Stadium will host Tuesday’s football match between Leicester City and Manchester City. The Foxes aim to bounce back from a shocking 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace, but they will have a big fish to fry in the League Cup game against the high-flying Citizens. It is well know that Leicester are tough to beat at home, but that should not help them upset Pep Guardiola’s unstoppable machine. Man City rolled over Tottenham Hotspur in their last league fixture and regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting line-up, we predict the Premier League leaders will advance to the League Cup semis. Kevin de Bruyne is enjoying yet another season to remember and the Belgium international will be the man to watch in the away team. When the two teams met at King Power Stadium earlier this term Man City recorded a 2-0 win over Leicester City and the history is likely to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Wes Morgan):
Wes Morgan is an experienced 32-year-old defender who plays for English Premier League team Leicester City and the Jamaica national team. Morgan spent majority of his career at his boyhood club Nottingham Forest playing more than 400 games for them across 10 seasons. He was their longest-serving player when he transferred to Leicester City in 2012. Morgan soon became the captain of Leicester City and had great success with the Foxes most notably winning the Championship title in 2014 and the Premier League title in 2016. Morgan was born and brought up in England but chose to represent his ancestral nation at international level. He debuted for Jamaica in 2013 and was part of the teams that competed in the 2015 Copa America. He was also a successful member of the Jamaican team that finished second in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Morgan is a tough tackling defender and is a sturdy presence at the back.
Highlighted Team (Manchester City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight. Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), butboth managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097. Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
