Premier League leaders Manchester City are back in action after a week off to recover and train, and they return to the field with a really, really, really tough test: Leicester City visit the Etihad on Saturday’s late kickoff, and this will not be easy at all for the virtual champions.
The Foxes have improved tremendously under new manager Claude Puel and are looking a lot like the team that won the Premier League two years ago. They’re not just a counter-attacking side, though: Puel has them playing a really nice passing style now, and they can beat opponents in a number of ways.
Pep Guardiola and his men will travel to Switzerland after this one for a Champions League knockout match against FC Basel, and they certainly want to be confident going into the first European game of 2018. Winning against a very good Leicester side will be perfection for the Blues, but the Foxes will not quit. This will be fun, and you can’t miss it.
