STAR PREVIEW Leicester City v Man City

first_img[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ice and easy (in the end) with Everton last night – the timing of Everton’s equaliser just on the stroke of half-time proving the pivotal moment IMO.As brilliant as Man City have been this season, I can’t help but feel I wish they were just a LITTLE more vulnerable. Their domination this season has turned the Premier League season into a very average edition and sport even at the top level needs to be competitive otherwise it gets a little dull. Steve Davis in his robotic era, Rangers in their glory days, the ’bank’ of Roger Federer all completely annihilated their respective opposition but didn’t make for competitive betting events.All good things come to an end. Witness Celtic’s 69-game winning run being busted by Hearts at the weekend. 4-0 no less – we all saw that one coming Man City have already beaten Leicester 2-0 at the King Power in the Premier League this season but what to expect in tonight’s EFL Cup quarter final?Man City boss Pep Guardiola doesn’t strike me as a manager who wants to turn down the heat with just two wins away from more silverware – the fact they are so far clear in the Premier League in a funny way might make this even more desirable. No need to sacrifice any tournament, as might have been the case if things had been tighter at the top of the table. World domination and all that.There is likely to be some team rotation but it will still be a strong Man City side. Captain Vincent Kompany is a doubt again with a muscle problem and midfielder David Silva could be absent again for personal reasons.Leicester’s manager Claude Puel is going into the match fighting and said: “The next game will tell us if this [winning the cup] is possible or not because we have to play a fantastic team,” he said.“They are the top team in Europe and it’s difficult to beat this team – all the teams try without a good result.“It’s a good opportunity, a strong challenge for us to try to beat them. It’s a unique game, a quarter-final, a cup game and not a Premier League game and with the support of our fans we can make a fortress at the King Power Stadium.”Leicester City v Man CityCarabao Cup Quarter-Final19:45 Sky Sports Football / Sky Sports Main EventHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Nov 2017 PREMIER Leicester 0-2 Man CityMay 2017 PREMIER Man City 2-1 LeicesterDec 2016 PREMIER Leicester 4-2 Man CityFeb 2016 PREMIER Man City 1-3 LeicesterDec 2015 PREMIER Leicester 0-0 Man CityMar 2015 PREMIER Man City 2-0 LeicesterDec 2014 PREMIER Leicester 0-1 Man CityDec 2013 CAPITAL ONE CUP Leicester 1-3 Man CityJan 2011 FA CUP Man City 4-2 LeicesterJan 2011 FA CUP Leicester 2-2 Man CityNot a game I want to get too involved in as I always find cup matches trappy at best of times.Small bets on Man City / Man City and DRAW / DRAW in the Star Sports HT/FT market at 6/5 and 13/2 respectively is tonight’s project.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK MAN CITY/MAN CITY HT/FT 5 points at 6/5 with Star SportsBACK DRAW/DRAW HT/FT 3 points at 13/2 with Star SportsPROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: PROFIT 127.62 points BET WITH STAR SPORTS 08000 521 321last_img
