Closing in on the Premier League (PL) title, Manchester City have won each of their previous 12 league games. Only five other sides in PL history have won 12+ games in a row, although City are the only side to have done it twice. Impressively, nine of those wins were accompanied by a clean sheet.
The ‘Citizens’ can boast the best home record in the PL (W17, L1), and it doesn’t show signs of letting up. They have won eight of their previous ten PL home games in May (W8, D2), scoring 29 goals and conceding just five.
Leicester are in good form having lost just one of their previous seven league matches (W5, D1, L1). Notably, each of those wins saw Brendan Rodgers side score two or more goals. Additionally, victory at the Etihad would see the Foxes complete a top-flight double over reigning top-flight champions for the first time since 1985/86 against Everton.
The ‘Foxes’ have won just one of their previous four league matches against City (W1, L3), although that one victory did come in the reverse fixture this season. Furthermore, three of those matches produced over 2.5 match goals.
Players to watch: Sergio Agüero has scored 15 PL home goals for Man City this season – only in 2011/12 (16) did he scored more at the Etihad in a single campaign.
Leicester’s Jamie Vardy has scored more goals against ‘big six’ opponents than any other player in the PL (31).
Stat attack: Manchester City haven’t lost their last home league game of the season since 2013 (W4, D1).
Manchester City have scored in 100% of their home league matches.
Leicester have failed to win any of their previous 11 away PL matches on a Monday night (D3, L8).
Leicester have scored 35.29% of their league goals after the 75th minute.
