Leeds – Manchester City : Preview & Prediction
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, promoted to the Premier League this season, have shown an attractive face since the launch of this 2020-2021 exercise. Defeated in his first two matches, at the champion’s in Liverpool (4-3) and ahead of Hull City (1-1, 9 tab 10) in the EFL Cup, Leeds has straightened the bar and has just achieved 2 successes in a row in Premier League against Fulham (4-3) and at Sheffield United (1-0) last weekend. Leeds, currently 7th, have the 3rd best attack in the championship with 8 goals behind Leicester City (12) and Liverpool (9) but show defensive weaknesses (7 goals, 3rd worst defense) that Mancunians should exploit. The Citizens, admittedly deprived of Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva, will present a beautiful composition with Sterling, De Bruyne, Mahrez and Foden to animate the offensive sector at Elland Road. Pep Guardiola’s men, after a defeat at home in the league against Leicester City (2-5), reacted well by obtaining a qualification for the Round of 16 of the EFL Cup at Burnley (3-0) thanks to a double from Sterling. With 22 goals scored and 11 conceded in their last 8 matches, Manchester City’s matches are very lively.
