Leeds V Manchester City: Preview, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

After winning their Carabao Cup tie against Liverpool last week, Manchester City will be confident of getting another victory when they face Leeds in the league on Wednesday night.

Their opponents have lost five of their last seven games, and they struggle to keep clean sheets, so Pep Guardiola’s side will be strong favourites for this match.

In terms of team news, the Citizens will be without Kalvin Phillips (fitness), Ruben Dias (hamstring) and Julian Alvarez (fitness).

Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Take On Leeds:

Ederson, Walker, Akanji, Laporte, Cancelo, De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva, Mahrez, Haaland, Foden

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch has ten fitness doubts going into the game at Elland Road. Patrick Bamford (groin), Crysencio Summerville (ankle), Rodrigo (hamstring), Jack Harrison (thigh), Liam Cooper (calf), Ilhan Meslier and Mateusz Klich (both illness) are all touch-and-go to play. Stuart Dallas (broken leg), Luis Sinisterra (foot) and Archie Gray (ankle) have been ruled out of contention, while Tyler Adams is suspended.

Leeds’ Predicted XI:

Meslier, Kristiansen, Ayling, Cooper, Struijk, Forshaw, Aaronson, Roca, Greenwood, Rodrigo, Harrison

The bookmakers have backed City to secure the three points in this fixture, with Coral pricing them at 2/7 for the win. A draw is 5/1 with Unibet while a victory for Leeds is 19/2 at BetVictor.

Predicted Score – 5-1 to City
