Paul Merson states SHOCKING prediction for Leicester City vs Manchester City

Paul Merson has stated his prediction for the upcoming Premier League match between Leicester City vs Manchester City.

The teams are set to face each other on Saturday, October 29 at King Power Stadium.

The Foxes are currently standing two points above the relegation zone, Pep Guardiola's side, meanwhile, are in second with a two-point-gap to the leaders Arsenal.

Ahead of the game, the pundit predicted (via Sportskeeda) a shocking result of to clash, claiming the clash will end in a 2-2 draw.

"This is going to be a hard game for Manchester City. I know where Leicester are in the Premier League table but you never know which Leicester you're going to get. They wiped the floor with Wolves last week and they've got good players. But they did lose to Bournemouth, and I don't know which Leicester will turn up this week.

"We all know how good Manchester City are, but Leicester have done well against Pep Guardiola's teams over the years. The thing with Man City is that they're a brilliant team, but they do give you chances.

"When Man City were 2-1 up against Brighton last week, if you'd have asked me who was going to score the next goal, I would've backed Brighton. You can hurt Man City, but you've got to pick the right pass.

"Leicester aren't great at the back, but they play a certain way and that can hurt Pep's team. They're in a false position in the Premier League team at the moment and have played well, but they've been inconsistent.

"I think there are a lot of goals in this game. If the wrong Leicester turns up, Man City will wipe the floor with them. If the right one turns up, it's game on. I think Leicester can do well this weekend."

Paul Merson's prediction: Leicester City 2-2 Manchester City
