Manchester City vs Leicester prediction

Having not played a game since Dec. 12 due to the COVID-19 outbreak at the club, Leicester will not only be rusty but also woefully short on fitness. That's a recipe for disaster against Manchester City, as they appear less like humans and more like footballing cyborgs with each passing rout. Manchester City 4-1 Leicester.
