Can party time continue for fabulous Foxes?

WELL it is certainly the game we have all been waiting for.

Two teams with not many places between them in the Premier League with both sides absolutely desperate for the points in a game that could be pivotal to the campaign.

But enough about Aston Villa versus Norwich on Saturday, let’s get cracking with Manchester City against Leicester with the Foxes top of the table and aiming to go six points clear.

As much as I would love the 5,000-1 shots to do it surely at some stage Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan and Robert Huth go back to their normal standard and Claudio Ranieri gets back to his tactical masterplan with Greece that saw them lose to the mighty Faroe Islands.

Admittedly people have been waiting for Leicester to slip-up all season long and they continue to defy the odds with Jamie Vardy ridiculous run making Roy of the Rovers seem believable.

However, I look at the City side and think Aguero, Silva, Toure and Sterling will come to the party at the Etihad on Saturday and be party poopers to those fantastic Foxes

Man City v Leicester

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Leicester have lost one of their last 18 away games
Expert verdict
Leicester have stayed in title contention for far longer than most people expected and can spring another surprise by holding Manchester City to a draw at the Etihad. The leaders passed a major test by defeating Tottenham 1-0 away last month and will be hoping that a similarly disciplined performance can gain some reward against City.
