Manchester City Vs Leeds United: Match Preview And Injury News

It’s tiki-taka vs route one – Pep Guardiola will take on Sam Allardyce in a clash of footballing philosophies on Saturday afternoon, as Manchester City play relegation-threatened Leeds United at 3pm.

Manchester City have no confirmed absentees for their game against the Whites – with this being said, Kevin De Bruyne is a major doubt. The Belgian dynamo is currently out with a leg injury – Guardiola is hopeful that he will be ready to play at the weekend.

In their last game, Manchester City swept aside West Ham United by a score of 3-0. David Moyes’ Hammers put forth a spirited effort, but they were no match for the Sky Blues – the goals were scored by Nathan Ake, Erling Haaland and Phil Foden. Additionally, this game saw Haaland break the record for the most goals scored in a Premier League season.

Leeds, meanwhile, fell to a heavy defeat against AFC Bournemouth in their last Premier League fixture. Jefferson Lerma scored a brace, followed up by goals from Dominic Solanke and Antoine Semenyo – the Whites’ only goal of the afternoon was scored by Patrick Bamford.

When the two teams last came to blows, City defeated the West Yorkshire club by a score of 3-1 at Elland Road. Rodri and Erling Haaland were the Citizens’ goalscorers on the day – Leeds’ sole response came through Pascal Struijk.
