Cape Town – Manchester City will move to within one tantalising win, assuming it’s even needed, of defending their English Premiership title by seeing off useful opponents Leicester at the Etihad Stadium on Monday.

That is the firm belief of six of the seven Sport24 forecasters, with only one believing the Foxes are capable of holding them to a stalemate that could greatly resurrect Liverpool’s title challenge if they’ve beaten Newcastle away on Saturday.

Further enhancing the likelihood of three precious points to City is that they put five goals past Leicester in the equivalent fixture last season.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial), the other Premiership prediction panellists are Garrin Lambley (Everton, and defending champion), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Have a go yourself: three points are awarded to the forecasters for an entirely correct score-line, and one for right result.
