Leicester City Vs Manchester City

  • The stakes are high \u2013 City lost the corresponding fixture last December in our wobble which stopped us running away with the League title. There can be no room for any error \u2013 if City are to have any chance of being the first side to retain the Premier League Trophy for a decade they can not afford to drop any points. This is a must win game.\nCity were in a similar position in the last few games of the 2013\/14 when they were also having to win every game to win the title. In that battle they were facing Liverpool who at the time were managed by Brendan Rodgers. Can the ex Liverpool Manager inflict harm upon Manchester City\u2019s title bid and do what he could not manage whilst at Anfield and help them win the title?\nWe caught up with Harneet, the expert at Foxes of Leicester fan site and talked with him about the upcoming match.\nMan City Square : Who do you want to win the Premier League?\nFoxes of Leicester: Manchester City. To play the best football in Europe is one thing, to conflate that style and swagger with mental resilience is another \u2013 the latter is what has impressed me the most about the Citizens. I really appreciate how Liverpool have given City a run for their money, but the reigning Champions have simply been on a different level in terms of the way they\u2019ve handled the pressure of such a nerve-shredding title race. A Premier League title is no less than what they deserve. You can also insert Raheem Sterling\u2019s famous words from the BT Sport Industry Awards here, by the way.\n\n\tMore from Game preview\n\t\n\t\t\tManchester City vs. Liverpool: predicted line-up for the return to the Etihad\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\tManchester City vs. Burnley: FA Cup clash at the Etihad\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\tToday Only: Bet $5, Win $150 if Manchester City Beats Bristol City\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\tNottingham Forest vs. Manchester City: predicted line up\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\tTottenham vs Manchester City \u2013 A chance to close the gap.\n\t\t\t\t\n\nMan City Square : What are your feelings going into the City game? How do you think Leicester will line up and what do you think the score will be?\nFoxes of Leicester: I\u2019m not expecting any shocks on Monday but I\u2019m not expecting Leicester to be swept away either, especially if Brendan Rodgers sets up the same way as he did in the 3-1 win over Arsenal. He\u2019ll most certainly deploy the same 4-2-3-1 with Hamza Choudhury and Wilfred Ndidi sitting right in front of the usual back four in Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell. Further up the pitch, Youri Tielemans, James Maddison and Marc Albrighton should be supporting Jamie Vardy. I do not, however, think that any player or ploy is going to stop City from securing a 2-0 win \u2013 that\u2019s what I feel the final scoreline will be anyway.\n\n \n Next:\u00a0What Do We Think of Brendan Rodgers?\n \n"},"title":"We Preview The Manchester City v Leicester Match with Foxes of Leicester","permalink":"https:\/\/\/2019\/05\/01\/we-preview-the-manchester-city-v-leicester-match-with-foxes-of-leicester\/2\/","shortCodeTitle":null,"content":"What Do We Think of Brendan so Far?\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tLONDON, ENGLAND \u2013 APRIL 20: Brendan Rodgers, Manager of Leicester City acknowledges the fans following the Premier League match between West Ham United and Leicester City at London Stadium on April 20, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

All of the fans are. Since taking over, he has ameliorated a stagnating team and, more importantly, he has restored the fans\u2019 faith. Now everyone believes that Leicester can challenge for the top six next season with a Hakim Ziyech and David Neres-type addition and a couple more players elsewhere. That was not the case while Claude Puel was here.\nMan City Square:\u00a0Do you think he is happy to be there or waiting for a better offer?\nFoxes of Leicester: Is he happy? I bet he is. Will it stay that way? No. I firmly believe that he sees Leicester as some kind of an auditioning stage. Once he has restored his reputation in England with Leicester, he\u2019ll leave the moment an Ed Woodward or Daniel Levy knocks on his door.\nMan City Square: I went to both games last December and thought City were just unlucky, what do you think on reflection? Will there be a backlash?\nFoxes of Leicester: I won\u2019t say City were unlucky. They were just, to my surprise, outsmarted. They were flying high after Bernardo Silva\u2019s opener, when Puel switched to 4-1-4-1 from a 4-5-1. Albrighton and Choudhury swapped flanks and began to push City\u2019s full-backs in their own half, Maddison went central, Leicester\u2019s full-backs pushed higher up the pitch and all of a sudden, the Foxes were on top. For whatever reason, Guardiola didn\u2019t have an answer that night. To answer the second part of your question, City do not have a choice. There has to be a backlash.\n\nMan City Square: There has been some out of context nonsense in the media today suggesting Guardiola was rubbishing Leicester in his press conference. Having watched it, that was not the case \u2013 it was a terse Guardiola getting annoyed and sarcastic with idiot journalists. How do you think that will impact upon your preparation for the game?\nFoxes of Leicester: It won\u2019t. Rodgers is a clever man and he would not let an external factor impact his team. Besides, he will know that the media has made a mountain out of a molehill.\n\n \n Next:\u00a0Which Players Will Settle This Game?\n \n","title":"We Preview The Manchester City v Leicester Match with Foxes of Leicester","permalink":"https:\/\/\/2019\/05\/01\/we-preview-the-manchester-city-v-leicester-match-with-foxes-of-leicester\/3\/","shortCodeTitle":null,"content":"Which Players Will Have an Impact?\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tMANCHESTER, ENGLAND \u2013 APRIL 20: Raheem Sterling of Manchester City controls the ball during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at Etihad Stadium on April 20, 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom. (Photo by Shaun Botterill\/Getty Images)\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\nMan City Square: Which City player are you most fearful of going into this match?\nFoxes of Leicester: Raheem Sterling. Creative, clinical and utterly industrious, he is the best player in the Premier League and one of the very best in the world. If Leicester are to have any chances of getting something, they have to keep him quiet. Easier said than done, mind.\nMan City Square: Which Leicester player should we look out for? Who could most impact the game?\nFoxes of Leicester: Youri Tielemans. Leicester had been struggling to break down teams before his arrival because of a lack of someone who can both dictate the game and create something from a deeper role. Since his arrival, though, the Foxes have turned into a different beast. He has five assists and three goals in just 11 appearances, which explains the kind of impact he has already had. Be careful with him.\nMan City Square: What have you done to Kelechi?\nFoxes of Leicester: We have not played him at all.\nMan City Square: Where do you believe Brendan can get you next season?\nFoxes of Leicester: Tough one to answer but making it into the top six, as many of the Leicester faithful are hoping for, is far-fetched. I think seventh position is what the club should be looking to establish a grip on, or put another way, to first be the best of the rest has to be the motive. And this is something that I\u2019m sure Rodgers will be able to achieve.\n\n \n \n Next:\u00a0Three Things We Learnt As City Beat Burnley\n \n \n\n\nWe hope to catch up with Foxes of Leicester again after the match.
