A quick glance at the top of the Premier League will reveal to you one of the worst kept secrets in the world. Liverpool’s dominance this season has seeen them create a huge gap between themselves and other teams.
As European champions, they will be absent from the Round 18 Premier League games this weekend as they compete in the FIFA World Cup. And even in their absence, they will still be mentioned before, during and after the major PL game this weekend: Manchester City and Leicester City.
This season, it has been the case of Liverpool and the other 19 teams. Of the 19 others, the two most consistent sides will clash in the PL’s star game this weekend. And it will be a battle to determine, to an extent, the second-best side in the league.
Separated by four points, the game between the Citizens and the Foxes is one to watch out for, for a number of reasons.
With Manchester City’s defensive frailty obvious, how many goals will Leicester score in this game?

With 47 goals scored, Man. City are just four goals shy of scoring an average of three goals per game. The most prolific side in the league will welcome the side with the best defense in the league at the moment. Spurred by their performance against Arsenal – three goals scored and a clean sheet – they will be looking to make a statement by defeating Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Cutting the distance down to one point will come handy going into the festive period full of games. And although the league is over, a win for City will push them closer to being perfectly poised to take advantage of any Liverpool slip up – if it ever occurs.
With a long list of absentees, Kevin de Bruyne stepped up to the plate against Arsenal. And he will be pivotal if City are to get anything out of their clash this weekend.
On the other hand, Leicester City will be counting on the scoring prowess of Jamie Vardy. The Englishman has scored 16 goals this season – the league’s highest. His style of play is perfectly suited to the Leicester style. More importantly, his speed will be a serious threat to a certain Fernandinho – who is not a natural center back – and Otamendi – one of City’s most inconsistent defenders.
