Manchester City were humiliated last time out against Leicester City but they bounced back well midweek with victory in the Carabao Cup.

The Citizens will hope to rebuild further with a trip to Elland Road against newcomers Leeds United, who are riding high after back-to-back victories against Fulham and Sheffield United.

Pep Guardiola meets his mentor Marcelo Bielsa in what promises to be a fascinating tactical duel.

With Liverpool already six points clear, despite playing a game more, City cannot afford to drop more points.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

Prediction

City will be pushed hard here but while Leeds have a style to hurt City, the opposite is also true. Expect City to be able to beat the press, even if there are some scary moments along the way. The firepower and added quality in attack should be enough to edge this, 1-2.
