Leicester City vs Manchester City 04/03/2021
Playing consistent soccer in the month of March, Leicester City (17-5-7, 56 points) have zoomed to third place and are a point behind Manchester United in the battle for the second spot in the English Premier League. The Foxes collected three straight wins in all tournaments during the month, including a 5-0 whitewash over Sheffield United and a 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final victory over Manchester United. In those wins, Kelechi Iheanacho stood out as its biggest star as he scored six goals. The sudden rise of Iheanacho gives the Foxes an extra offensive threat aside from Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes, and James Maddison. The quartet’s scoring wizardry will be very much needed if they want to upset runaway leaders Manchester City.
Players to Watch: Jamie Vardy (12 goals, 7 assists); Harvey Barnes (9 goals, 4 assists); James Maddison (8 goals, 5 assists); Youri Tielemans (6 goals, 3 assists); Kelechi Iheanacho (6 goals).
Manchester City (22-5-3, 71 points) has played excellent football over the past four games, surrendering just two goals in that span while scoring 12 goals. Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan became the team’s one-two punch, recording four and three goals, respectively. Man City will rely on the duo’s playmaking and goal-scoring skills to keep their winning streak intact. Goalkeeper Ederson will also be a factor in this showdown as he recorded 17 clean sheets in 29 EPL games. His command on defense will be key in stopping Leicester City’s offensive firepower and help secure another win for the City.
Players to Watch: Ilkay Gundogan (12 goals, 1 assist); Raheem Sterling (9 goals, 5 assists); Riyad Mahrez (9 goals, 4 assists); Gabriel Jesus (7 goals, 3 assists): Phil Foden (6 goals, 5 assists); Kevin De Bruyne (5 goals, 11 assists).
