Man City vs Leeds
SAT 10 APR 2021 – KO 12:30
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday afternoon, Manchester City host Leeds United at the Etihad, with the hosts looking to get three points closer to winning the Premier League.
The Citizens go into this game off the back of a big win midweek against Dortmund. They have won their last six games in all competitions and will expect to carry this on, on Saturday.
Currently, City are 14 points clear and if they win four more games, they will become Premier League champions once again. This will be a fascinating game between two sides who play very attacking football.
Against Leeds, City will most probably make a lot of changes ahead of next weeks game against Dortmund. They have the squad to do this and will still have a very strong side out. City will dominate the possession but need to be wary as Leeds won’t sit back all game.
Bielsa’s side are unbeaten in their last three games, beating Sheffield United 2-1 at the weekend. The result keeps them 11th in the league, which is a fantastic debut season.
For Leeds a top ten finish is possible. They are currently level on points with Arsenal but behind on goal difference. This would show a real sign of intent from Leeds if they broke into the top half and would help them massively when recruiting this summer.
It’s going to be interesting to see how Leeds approach this game. This season we have come to recognise Leeds as an exciting team who love to attack. Doing this against City can be very dangerous as this will leave gaps open. However, Leeds have always said they won’t change for anyone so!
Pep has the luxury of having a full squad to choose from for this game.
Leeds have just two injuries in Harrison and Foreshaw.
