Marking their Premier League return with an impressive display earlier in the week, Manchester City will be hoping to make it two in two when they welcome Leicester to the Etihad on Sunday afternoon.

Eventually picking up a 3-1 win away at Champions League hopefuls Wolves on Monday night, it is no secret that the Sky Blues have their sights set on recapturing their domestic crown this time around.

On the flip side, while Leicester might have thrown away what appeared to be a secured top-four return over the summer, the Foxes landed a 4-2 win against Burnley last weekend and have now secured back-to-back Premier League victories.

However, facing what is an unenviable task when they travel to the blue half of Manchester on Sunday, it should be noted that Brendan Rodgers’ men hold a concerning record against the former champions.

Losing each of their last three straight meetings against City, you might be interested to know that two of those victories have finished by a score of 1-0 and an identical outcome this weekend can be found priced at 9/1 with Bet365.

City lay down a marker

Although many felt that they could still be reeling from their shock Champions League defeat at the hands of Lyon out in Portugal last month, Manchester City really came firing out the blocks on Monday night.

While a Premier League opener away at Wolves could have been a real banana skin for Pep Guardiola’s outfit, the former champions eventually left with a 3-1 win on their travels and would have certainly laid down a marker to Liverpool.

With Kevin De Bruyne opening his account and putting in a Man of the Match display at Molineux, the former Barcelona boss also saw his side sign off last year’s campaign with a real flurry.

Managing to come past Bournemouth while on EFL Cup duties in midweek with a heavily-altered squad, City were last seen at the Etihad on Premier League duties landing a 5-0 romp against Norwich back in July.

In fact, now winning each of their last seven top-flight matchups on the bounce carrying on from the summer, Sunday’s hosts recorded a staggering 26 goals on that six-match winning run.

You might be interested to know that City can be found priced at 20/21 with Unibet to bag over 2.5 goals this weekend.

Vardy to lead an upset?

While Leicester might have seen Arsenal end their EFL Cup adventure in midweek, the Foxes have impressed since making a return to Premier League duties earlier in the month.

Along with opening the New Year with a 3-0 romp away at top-flight returners West Brom, Brendan Rodgers’ side hit Burnley for four last weekend and they also have one attacking talisman who has already opened his account this season.

Bagging a brace at the Hawthorns a fortnight ago, Jamie Vardy will be looking to lead an upset on Sunday and also holds what is a very eye-catching record against the former champions.

In fact, Vardy has scored five goals in his past eight appearances against Manchester City in the Premier League. He’s also the only player to score a top-flight hat-trick against a side managed by Pep Guardiola, doing so in the Foxes’ 4-2 win against City in December 2016.

You might be interested to know that the now-former England international can be found priced at 7/4 with Paddy Power to extend on that Etihad tally this weekend.
