Manchester City have won their last eight games in the English Premier League and they want to extend their winning streak against Leicester City on Sunday.

The Citizens breezed past Newcastle United 4-0 in the last round where Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling tallied a goal apiece.

Man City are at the league summit with 44 points from 18 games.

Ferran Torres, Liam Delap and Kyle Walker will continue to miss out for Pep Guardiola's side due to injury while Benjamin Mendy is suspended.

Leicester also thrashed Newcastle 4-0 in their last Premier League game. Youri Tielemans scored twice while Patson Daka and James Maddison added a goal each.

Brendan Rodgers' boys are currently in ninth place with 22 points from 16 games.

Leicester lost to Liverpool in the EFL Cup (Carabao Cup) quarter-final on Wednesday. The Reds won the penalty shoot-out after the game ended in a 3-3 draw. Jamie Vardy scored two goals in regulation while Maddison was also on target.

Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana have injuries and they will not feature here. Also absent are James Justin, Vontae Daley-Campbell and Hamza Choudhury.

Vardy was injured against Liverpool and his condition will be assessed for this game.

Man City beat Leicester 1-0 in their first meeting this season. Bernardo Silva’s goal in the 62nd minute sealed the win for the Citizens at King Power Stadium.

Verdict

Man City are more consistent than Leicester City so we expect a win for the Citizens here and both teams to score.
