Leicester City vs Manchester City – EFL Cup 2018 Preview and Scores

Match Preview

On the sides of Premier League action, two former winners of the English Premier League, Manchester City and Leicester take on each other in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup. Man City make the trip to the King Power Stadium, this Wednesday, to take on Leicester City.

Leicester City

Leicester have had a mixed season in the premier league and so are desperate to recreate the magic they had few seasons back. It’s true that they lost some valuable players. But passion and hunger remain.

Leicester lost their last game, at home, against the Spurs. The final scoreline was 0-2, in favor of the guests. Son and Alli scored the two goals for Tottenham.

Leicester have won just twice in their last ten overall fixtures. The team has won only once in their last six games at home. Claude Puel has not found that stability yet but Leicester still have good players that can deliver and City should be worried about them.

Leicester possible starting eleven:

Schmeichel; Amartey, Evans, Maguire, Chilwell; Mendy, Ndidi; Pereira, Iheanacho, Maddison; Vardy

Manchester City

Man. City orchestrated an emphatic comeback in their last game, against Hoffenheim, at home, in the Champions League. The visitors scored first, but Manchester City held on and scored two goals to ensure the win.

Guardiola’s boys remained unbeaten for a long time this season until they were defeated by Chelsea. This means they will have no trouble in securing a win in this match. They are easily the best team in England right now, and even possibly the best team in Europe.

One of their major obstacles is their historical rivals and their unimaginable achievements. City can record all their wins, but as long as they don’t have a treble to match Manchester United, they will always be the inferior Manchester side.

Manchester City is currently one of the hottest teams in Europe. They took on from right where they left last season. The juggernauts don’t seem to have any intention of stopping any time soon. The team is out to build a dynasty under the watchful guidance of Per Guardiola, easily the best coach in the business right now.

Man City possible starting eleven:

Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Delph; Gundogan, Fernandinho, Bernardo; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling

Head To Head

Manchester City have lost just two of their last 26 matches.
