our main tip:
Goal Over 2.5

Manchester City vs Leicester City 27.09.2020

Leicester put aside the disppointment of missing out on Champions League places last season and  have began this season in sizzling form, winning both of their opening games to go top of the table. Last season’s golden boot winner Jamie Vardy scored twice as they beat Burnley 4-2 in the last game. Leicester have scored 7 goals in these two games.  Manchester City were at their best against one of their bogey teams from last season as they beat Wolves 3-1 at the Molineux. This team had picked 6 points from them last season and to see them putting them to the sword was at statement of their intentions. With both teams playing as well as they are, we expect an attacking fest here that should yield quite a few goals and we are picking Over 2.5 goals as our prediction for the game
