Manchester City is going to win the Premier League, but Leicester City would love to give them the slightest reason to doubt themselves when the third-placew Foxes host Pep Guardiola’s leaders on Saturday (start time 12:30pm ET Saturday on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Man City has rebounded from its loss to Manchester United to claim back-to-back wins and now leads the field by 14 points and Leicester by 15, though Saturday’s hosts have a match-in-hand.
That said, Leicester also has to worry about the chasing pack, as Chelsea is five points back of third, West Ham seven behind, and Spurs eight back. Leicester visits West Ham on April 11 and meets Chelsea and Spurs on the final two weekends, recreating a vibe of last year’s late-season dive out of the top four.
Man City is healthy and has great depth but will certainly have one eye trained on Tuesday’s visit from Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Will James Maddison come off the bench for Leicester City to make a difference alongside red-hot Kelechi Iheanacho, who has a new deal and is returning from Africa hoping to keep up his scoring run, which stands at five goals in his last three Premier League matches.
Man City also had a legion of international stars who will have traveled plenty over the break, so this could be a disjointed affair where mistakes make the difference. Might Man City drop a point or three again? We imagine Pep Guardiola will have his men well-drilled and quite familiar with the 5-2 loss to the Foxes earlier this season. Leicester City 1-2 Man City.
