Leicester City v Manchester City Preview
Manchester City take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, as they aim to finish their domestic season strongly. The Cityzens were slapped with a two-year European ban earlier this week, a decision that came as a shock to the footballing fraternity and will be aiming to set things right before the conclusion of the current season.
The Foxes, on the other hand, are sitting pretty in third place and look well set to secure UEFA Champions League qualification, as Brendan Rodgers and co have been one of the overachievers of the season.
