Manchester City Set to Dominate Leicester in Saturday Night Showdown – On Saturday 15 April, Manchester City will host Leicester City in a Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium. The match will kick off at 17:30 BST / 12:30 ET / 09:30 PT and will be officiated by referee Darren England, with Jarred Gillett serving as VAR.

Manchester City, who are currently second in the Premier League table, will be hoping to continue their good form after a 3-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg. Leicester City, on the other hand, is struggling and has lost their last two matches, including a 1-0 defeat to relegation contenders Bournemouth.

In terms of team news, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has few injury concerns, with Phil Foden being the only confirmed absentee. Kyle Walker, who Guardiola recently said can’t play in his new system, could be recalled to freshen up the starting XI.

For Leicester City, Dean Smith will be taking charge of his first match as interim manager, following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers. Youri Tielemans could be available, but James Justin is a long-term absentee and Jannik Vestergaard is training away from the first team. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who served his suspension, may come back into the starting XI.

Looking at the head-to-head record between the two sides, Manchester City has won four of their last five matches against Leicester City, with Leicester City winning just once.

In terms of TV coverage, the match will be broadcast on Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Main Event, and Sky Ultra HD in the UK. In the US, it will be available on Telemundo Deportes En Vivo, Peacock, UNIVERSO NOW, UNIVERSO, and NBC. Canadian viewers can watch it on fuboTV Canada.

Given the form of the two sides, Manchester City is the clear favourite to win this match. A heavy victory for Guardiola’s men looks likely, and a scoreline of 4-0 in their favour wouldn’t be a surprise. Nonetheless, anything can happen in football, and Leicester City will be hoping to cause an upset and get a result at the Etihad Stadium.
