In their last league fixture, Manchester City dropped points only for the fourth occasion this season as they were held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor.
The league leaders will be eager to get back to winning ways when they host Leicester City at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
City players, especially Raheem Sterling, were guilty of squandering easy chances against the Clarets, and Pep Guardiola will hope for much better finishing from his side against the Foxes.
The Citizens have lost only once this season, and that result came against Liverpool at Anfield. Ahead of the game, they have a 13-point lead at the top with 12 games left in the season.
The Foxes have picked up just one point in their last two games, and it appears that Riyad Mahrez’s ongoing strike is influencing their on-pitch performances.
In their last game, they managed a 1-1 home draw against Swansea City, and prior to that, they had lost 2-1 at Everton.
Coming into this game, the visitors are placed eighth in the league table with 35 points.
Earlier this season, the Citizens registered a 2-0 win over their opponents at King Power Stadium. City also defeated Leicester on penalties in a League Cup tie in December.
