As always, we’ve analysed the facts, figures, stats and more in creating our expert Premier League predictions today. So, if you’re looking for the best Premier League tips, predictions and inside info, read on. With three top tips a week, we’re sure to help you beat the bookies.

The current constitution

Man City start strong after late start

Pep Guardiola’s side started their Premier League campaign a week later than most thanks to their Champions League exploits in August. Despite being handed a tricky away tie against Wolves, City managed to run out as comfortable 3-1 winners thanks to goals from De Bruyne, Foden and Jesus. Guardiola does have a small injury list to worry about, as Aguero, Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo have all been ruled out. Additionally, Laporte and Gündoğan will miss out due to isolation following positive Covid tests. However with De Bruyne and Foden looking sharp in the opening game, Pep won’t be missing too much creativity.

Foxes look to make it 3 on the bounce

After two games, the Foxes sit at the top of the table on goal difference. However their strong early start faces a tough test on Sunday with this daunting trip to the Etihad. And our Premier League predictions suggest the Leicester bubble could be about to burst. Brendan Rogers’ side look to have recovered from their terrible form towards the tail end of last season. The Foxeshave won both of their opening games, scoring 7 in the process. Despite now being 33 years of age, last season’s golden boot winner Jamie Vardy still looks sharper than ever.

Head to Head

Leicester haven’t managed an away win against Manchester City since their shock title winning season back in 2016. Since then, the Foxes have only managed one home Premier League victory over the Citizens in December of 2018. While there are undoubtedly goals in this Leicester side, this Premier League prediction weekend foresees a City win as being more likely. Manchester City won this fixture 3-1 last season, and a repeat of that definitely looks likely. Premier League tips & betting experts across the country will be eyeing up this fixture due to it’s goalfest potential.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having analysed the above information and both sides’ early season form, our Premier League predictions for this weekend point to a home win at the Etihad on Sunday.

A Man City win with goals at either end

Pep Guardiola’s men looked sharp and comfortable in their 3-1 win over Wolves on Monday night. Despite lacking some midfield creativity and defensive strength thanks to injuries and Covid-19, Pep should have enough in his squad to see off Leicester. However, Leicester are joint top scores after the opening two games. Furthermore, with City being short of options at left back, we’re most definitely backing Leicester City to grab at least one goal this Sunday.

Our top betting tip for this match is to back Manchester City to win by 2 goals, which you can place with SkyBet on odds of 4. This same fixture last season ended 3-1, which is the same scoreline Manchester City won by in their opening game on Monday evening. Those looking for a safer bet could back a City win with both teams to score, but at just 2.5, it doesn’t offer too much value.
