Leicester picked up all three points away at Wolverhampton as the Foxes secured back-to-back wins to move out of the relegation zone. With that victory, Leicester moved to 11 points, two above Wolves, who have now lost five of their last six games.
There is so much quality in this Leicester side that it has been so surprising to see them so down in the league. They have the second-worst defense in the league with 24 goals allowed in 12 games, but they kept two clean sheets in a row. Leicester can carve opponents apart and now they have the confidence back and they’re winning games that will push them up the table very quickly.
Leicester’s resurgence has largely been driven by a series of improved defensive performances. But Man City is coming to town and things might get wild. With the Word Cup approaching, and Erling Haaland’s Norway not participating, you can expect him to extend his incredible run of form. If you’re betting online, you should fade Leicester on Saturday. They will be without Ryan Bertrand, Jonny Evans, Wilfred Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira, who are all injured.
Man City: Goal Machine
Erling Haaland is the first Manchester City player to score in seven consecutive home games in all competitions since Sergio Aguero in February 2018. Kevin De Bruyne played an influential role throughout the season, but Pep Guardiola feels the Belgian playmaker has not been at his best lately.
Since his Premier League debut for Man City in September 2015, De Bruyne has scored more goals from outside the box than any other player in the competition in this period. His numbers are incredible and he will be eager to improve them.
The Citizens have five fixtures in all competitions before the World Cup, including four at Etihad Stadium, where they have won each of their last 13 games and scored a remarkable 54 goals. They had some issues on the road, but let’s not forget that Leicester are struggling badly at the back. The Citizens should have enough to cover the spread on Saturday and we will include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
They rested some of their key players against Dortmund in the Champions League midweek action. De Bruyne and Ederson were left on the bench while Haaland and Joao Cancelo played just 45 minutes.

Leicester vs Man City Prediction
The Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -340 on the three-way Moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 3½.
The Citizens will not have the title handed to them on a platter this season. They will have to sweat for it and count on them to deliver. Basically, this is a must-win because Arsenal will host bottom-placed Nottingham on Sunday and they will probably win that clash. Haaland is on a roll with his scoring prowess and is an early candidate to win the European Golden Boot. There’s no way Leicester will be able to keep City at bay, but we expect them to score here. Over 3½ is one of the ways to go but for our official pick, but we’re going with City to cover the spread.
