Manchester City vs Leicester City – Betting Tips and Predictions

Guardiola excludes Mahrez from his wishing list

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has admitted that he is keen to draw a line under the Riyad Mahrez saga after integrating the wantaway winger back into his squad.

Sergio Aguero scored four second-half goals as Manchester City's march towards the Premier League title continued unabated with a 5-1 thrashing of Leicester on Saturday to move 16 points clear of Manchester United.

"I think Riyad is not available for Saturday's game", Puel told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

Claude Puel introduced Mahrez from the bench to a chorus of ironic cheers just after the hour mark, giving him his first appearance since January 20. He fought, he played good, scored goals and that's why he's so important to us.

The Leicester forward had wanted to join Guardiola's team on deadline day of the transfer window, but the Foxes rejected their £65m bid. Riyad came back, and he is an important player.

"He's played a lot of minutes and he deserves some rest but the other side is he's such an important player or us".

The move was widely interpreted as Guardiola making a point over rough treatment of his players after Leroy Sane suffered ankle injury against Cardiff, and both Kevin De Bruyne and Brahim Diaz were the victims of reckless challenges in the next game against West Brom.

City's opening goal, coming from Raheem Sterling in the third minute, set the tone and from there Pep Guardiola's men were simply unstoppable.

The goal also made Vardy the first player to ever score against each of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the same Premier League season.

Mahrez has been unavailable for Leicester's last two Premier League matches, but the winger says he was not AWOL as had been widely reported.

Leicester City are sitting eighth on 35 points, but could up to seventh and replace Burnley of The Clarets fail to beat Swansea City in their game.

"We have 18 players tomorrow so Gary Neville can be happy", he said, having shaken or nodded his head to state whether his quintet of absentees from last time out would be ready to play.

"I'm not going to deny, we have enjoyed these six, seven months, but to be admired we have to lift the titles, but we're in the right way".
