The champions trail their visitors by four points after 17 games of the season, while both teams are going to be looking to require the chance to shut the gap on runaway leaders Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers could also be a prospective candidate to manage Manchester City within the future so a win for his impressive
Leicester over the champions would offer a private fillip beyond the three points needed to take care of pressure on the leaders,
Liverpool. As ever, Pep Guardiola’s side should have something significant to mention that.
With Liverpool 10 points beyond Leicester and 14 before third-placed Man City after just 17 games, the probabilities of catching Jurgen Klopp’s Reds look increasingly slim.
Leicester are obviously best-placed to chase down Liverpool should the leaders stumble,
but Pep Guardiola’s side have shown before that they’re quite capable of stringing an outstanding run of results together.
Lose, and Man City’s title hopes are surely over. Win,
and Liverpool will have the prospect to travel 13 points clear once they return from the Fifa Club World Cup.
it’s not an excellent situation for either Brendan Rodgers or Guardiola,
but all they will do at now is attempt to keep winning and keep the pressure on Klopp.
