Manchester City host Leicester as Everton visit Stoke

| 04.03.2015

It is the northwest against the midlands, as Coral bring you two tantalising midweek Premier League previews, as Manchester City welcome Leicester City and the Toffees travel to the Potteries.

Manchester City V Leicester City
The home side will know they need to win to keep the pressure on Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table, who five points ahead with one game in hand. Manuel Pellegrini’s side are heavily odds-on at 2/7 with Coral for the win, and having lost a crucial match against Liverpool at Anfield last time out, will be keen to put things right.

Earlier in the season, Frank Lampard scored the solitary strike to ensure three points headed back to the Etihad and the midfielder is 2/1 to net anytime here. Edin Dzeko bagged a brace in the Citizens’ Capital One Cup victory last term inspiring his team to a 3-1 win. The striker is 5/1 to score two or more, while Sergio Aguero, who has notched three in as many Premier League matches is 3/1 to net first.

The Foxes however, have won their last four Premier League away meetings against Man City, though this was before their opponents were bought by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan. New signing Andrej Kramaric has netted two in his last three outings for the visitors and is 10/3 to net anytime, while Dave Nugent who dispatched last time out is 4/1 in the same market.

Stoke City V Everton
Mark Hughes’ side are chasing a first league double over Everton for the first time since the 1966-67 campaign, and are 7/5 to beat Roberto Martinez’s men at the Britannia. Peter Crouch has scored four in his last five matches, netting the winner last time out against Hull and is 7/4 to net anytime.

The Merseyside outfit are looking for their first Premier League win in five matches, since they beat Crystal Palace 1-0. They are 21/10 for victory and Steven Naismith who scored last time out, is 11/4 in the anytime market.
