Premier League

Monday evening’s Premier League action comes from the Etihad Stadium where Manchester City take on Leicester City.

The hosts are on a twelve-match winning streak in the league, and only another victory will see them go into the final day of the season in pole position.

Whatever the result, one thing that is for sure is that nothing will be decided until next Sunday with City at Brighton and Hove Albion and Liverpool hosting Wolverhampton Wanderers.

As it stands, Pep Guardiola’s side are on course to reach ninety-eight points, which would be the second highest total in the division’s history only behind the 100 they racked up on route to the championship last term.

Kevin De Bruyne will again miss out as he continues to struggle with a hamstring injury while Fernandinho remains doubtful with a knee problem.

Sergio Aguero is favourite to get the first goal of the game at 4.0 (3/1) with most firms, with Raheem Sterling a 5.0 (4/1) chance with Unibet.

The home win is 1.22 (11/50) with Unibet, with the visitors as highly priced as the 15.0 (14/1) on offer from most firms. The draw can be backed at 8.5 (15/2) with Betfair.

The Foxes have lost just one of their last seven league games while they have taken seven points from the last nine available to them on the road.

Victory here would see them move up to eighth place ahead of next weekend, when they may still have a chance of leapfrogging Wolves into seventh.

With no fresh injury concerns, Brendon Rodgers could name the same side that swept aside Arsenal last time out.

Jamie Vardy is 10.0 (9/1) to open the scoring, with James Maddison a 26.0 (25/1) shot with some firms.

Leicester won the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium, coming from a goal down to triumph 2-1 on Boxing Day.

Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight meetings, so you may be tempted to back that outcome this time around at a widely available price of 1.8 (4/5) while you can bet on Leicester not to lose at 4.8 (19/5) with Unibet.
