Correct outcome prediction: Leicester City to Win

No one has earned more points in the previous ten matches than Leicester City has won twenty-six from a possible thirty. Coventry has been in good form and has earned twenty-one points in the same time frame. Leicester City sits top of the table for a reason, the Foxes have so much talent at their disposal with their squad resembling a Premier League squad and not a Championship squad.

Total goals prediction: Over 4.5 Goals

Leicester scored three times and conceded two times in their recent match with Coventry also conceding twice but scoring a huge six goals against League One side Oxford United. Both teams have so many incredible attacking players which should make this match a goal-fest with neutrals enjoying what they will be watching. Leicester have scored nine times in their previous three matches while Coventry has scored eleven times in three matches.

​​​Correct score prediction: 3-2 to Leicester City

It would take a lot for this Leicester side to be beaten, Leicester will be without Harry Souttar, Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfried Ndidi and Patson Daka who will be representing their nations at the Asian Cup and AFCON but without those players, this Leicester squad is still good enough to earn all three points.
