The Leicester City frontman has excelled against the Premier League's elite clubs and at 14/5 the 32-year-old could land punters a healthy profit

Manchester City are red-hot favourites to win their penultimate Premier League game of the season.

888Sport offer just 1/7 (1.14) about Pep Guardiola's side securing three points and reclaiming top spot in the division.

Leicester City are 15/1 (16.0) outsiders to win at the Etihad Stadium and complete a league double over the reigning champions but the value for punters could lie in the scorer markets.

Sergio Aguero is 3/5 (1.60) to find the net for the second game in a row. The Argentine has excelled at the Etihad Stadium this term, hitting 15 of his 20 top-flight strikes at home.

Nine of those have been the opening goal of a game and 888Sport go 29/10 (3.90) that the deadlock is broken by City's leading scorer this term.

Raheem Sterling is 4/5 (1.80) to net his 18th goal of the campaign while Leroy Sane is available at 57/50 (2.14). Riyad Mahrez’s opportunities have been limited since his move to Manchester but the former Leicester winger is an industry best 17/10 (2.70) to score against his ex-employers.

Jamie Vardy is set to lead the line for the visitors and at 14/5 (3.80) the 32-year-old looks to be the most solid value proposition.

Since his Premier League debut in 2014 no player has scored more goals against the "Big Six" teams than any other player in the competition. A double against Arsenal last time out took Vardy's tally to 31, having also scored against Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham this season.

A change in manager has certainly seen an improvement in Leicester's star striker too. In the nine games since Brendan Rodgers took over at Leicester, Vardy has scored 10 times. Prior to that, the former England international had just eight strikes for the season.

Given Vardy's impressive record against the Premier League elite, the 14/5 (3.80) on offer with 888Sport about him finding the net at the Etihad looks a worthwhile selection. The same firm go 10/1 (11.0) that the Foxes' frontman opens the scoring.
