MANCHESTER CITY NEWS

Manchester City's season was crippled by injuries. While Ilkay Gundogan led their midfield, Guardiola's squad was topping the table, and it seemed like they will easily win the title, but after he was sidelined, everything fell apart. Sergio Aguero's groin strain kept him outside the game against Crystal Palace, but he and defender John Stones should be ready for the clash against Leicester. This is a very important match for Manchester City, which is trying to secure the top 4 position that leads to Champions League. After the game against Leicester, they will host WBA, and they will travel to Watford for the last match of the season. They have a moderately difficult schedule, and they are favorites in all games until the end.

LEICESTER CITY NEWS

Leicester will travel to Manchester without their rock-solid defensive duo Morgan-Huth, which makes them vulnerable defensively. Leicester will try to climb to the 8th place on the table - if Manchester United win Europa League title against Ajax, 8th place in Premier League will lead to Europa League qualifications. However, that is easier said than done - Leicester have to play against Manchester City and Tottenham on the road and Bournemouth at home, so they have a difficult schedule in the last 3 rounds.

SUMMING UP!
