Can't see Man City matching Leicester's workrate.
It might be interesting to see if they can keep that rate up for two games in quick succession. They worked hard for the full 90 against Liverpool and didn't get a chance for anything like a breather while City could be at half pace for the second half.
Aguero had his feet up. So did Navas. Delph only had half an hour in a slow second half. All three could come in as fresh legs.
Toure can still be unplayable when he fancies it. Which usually is for 15 minutes per game. Fernandinho is pretty good, too, I feel he would get noticed much more if he didn't play for City.C'mon Leicester! I'm going for (and hoping) for a 2-1 home win.
City just aren't all that, going on bank statements they're the best in the league. But Silva and Aguero aside, they're nothing special.
I don't know about Leicester playing more conservatively (defensively), it's their attack that's brought them success, not their defence. Man City will definitely have more of the ball, though, but I'm expecting an attacking line-up from Leicester and committing men forward when possible.
A side note: Does anyone else find it slightly irritating when people talk about "City" or "United" when both the teams in the fixture are called that? Like here, Leicester City and Manchester City. Or when Manchester United play, say, Newcastle United and people still just call Man United "United". I don't know, maybe I need counseling.
And I was right.Got a feeling Ranieri might change things given the number of bodies Man City generally have in the middle. Hopefully not though.
Yeah, that front 4 can absolutely destroy us if they get into their stride.Shame about that front four.
