Pep’s boys to triumph in goal fest

847

Manchester City may well have revenge on their minds when they travel to the site of one of Pep Guardiola’s darkest days in English football on Saturday, Leicester.

The Foxes were in rampant mood last December, with Jamie Vardy netting a hat-trick and it was only two late goals that added a hint of respectably for the Citizens, as they crashed to a 4-2 defeat.

However, Guardiola appears to have learned from games likes the one at the King Power and his team currently sit eight points clear at the top and are yet to taste defeat in any competition.

After a tough start, Leicester hit the panic button in sacking Craig Shakespeare but with all respect to the former boss, they appear to have upgraded by appointing Claude Puel.

Four points from two games has got their season back on track and Puel is sure to have a tactical titbit up his sleeve for the game, with his team 33/4 for the victory.

The rejuvenated Vardy is likely to be his side’s main threat and is 9/5 to score at anytime, while however unlikely it maybe, another haul of three or more is 50/1.

City are the massive favourites and the 10/31 on offer for the away win almost seems too short to consider, while the draw is 9/2.

Guardiola’s men have looked steady at the back this term but Leicester are one of those sides who can always grab a goal and will undoubtedly fancy themselves with Fernandinho set to slot into the back four due to Nicolas Otamendi’s suspension.

Therefore the away win with both to score is worth a look at 7/5 but they are likely to be blunted by a doubt over Sergio Aguero, so instead consider Gabriel Jesus’ 12/5 to open the scoring.
