We bring you the latest performance and team news from Elland Road and the Etihad Stadium:
Leeds United Form and Team News
Leeds United will be desperate for a victory as they are only six points away from the famous 40-point safety benchmark, and their recent performances suggest safety is achievable. They have not lost in their last five premier league matches, winning three and drawing two, although those games have come against sides in the bottom half of the table.
They sit in 16th place, having managed only eight wins all season, with ten draws and 15 losses. Their poor defensive plays represent their major struggles this season, shipping 68 goals in 33 matches, only one less than Norwich, who are almost certain of relegation. They have a genuine goal threat in Raphinha, who has scored ten goals and provided three assists.
Leeds may not be able to field Patrick Bamford, Tyler Roberts, and Adam Forshaw for Manchester City’s visit as they are currently injured.
Manchester City Form and Team News
After a thrilling 4-3 victory over Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium, Kevin de Bruyne and Co. return to Premier League action against Leeds as they look to defend their title successfully. A 5-1 win at Watford reminded football fans of the brilliance of this team, and although they have had struggles lately, they are managing the business end of the season well.
With 25 wins, five draws, and three losses in 33 games, City have scored 80 goals and conceded only 21, the second-best and best haul in the league, respectively. Forwards Kevin de Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, and Ilkay Gundogan have 61 goals between them, making certain that City have not suffered for lacking a conventional striker.
Kyle Walker is the only player on the sidelines for the Blues, and he may not be a part of the trip to Elland Road.
