Manchester City will be looking to remain top of the Premier League standings this weekend, as they travel to Elland Road to take on relegation threatened Leeds United.
Premier League Preview
Every game is a must-win for both Manchester City and Liverpool between now and the end of the season. City have a tough away fixture against Leeds United in between their two Champions League semi-final legs against Real Madrid. Pep Guardiola’s side remain top of the league standings at this stage of the campaign, but they have just a slender one point advantage.
City’s form has improved under pressure in their previous two, as they have picked up back-to-back wins since their draw against Liverpool. It was a routine victory for City in their previous fixture in the Premier League, as they hammered Watford 5-1 at the Etihad.
Gabriel Jesus was in excellent form in that fixture, as he scored four times. The only other goal in the win was scored by Rodri. However, it’s unlikely City will be able to enjoy that much dominance on the road against Leeds.
Leeds United will still have one eye on the relegation zone, as they sit just five clear of 18th placed Everton. They have a tough run of fixtures to come in the Premier League, as they face Arsenal and Chelsea after this fixture against City. However, unlike many of the sides around them, they actually have some solid form under their belt.
Leeds are unbeaten in their previous five, and have won on three occasions during that period. They weren’t able to collect another win in their most recent fixture, as they played out a very uninterested 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
Leeds United vs Manchester City Head to Head
There have been three league fixtures between the sides since Leeds United’s return to the Premier League. City’s only win against Leeds came earlier in the season, as they won 7-0 at the Etihad. Leeds won away from home against City last season, while the fixture at Elland Road ended in a 1-1 draw.
Leeds United vs Manchester City Prediction
There will be tougher fixtures on the run-in for City than this trip to Elland Road. Leeds will play for the draw, but it would be hard to see the Whites keeping out the exciting City frontline. An away win looks a safe bet.
