Despite being newly-promoted, Leeds have wasted no time in adapting to life in the English top-flight. With six points from their first three games, the Whites look well on-course to playing out a very successful campaign.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are not currently in the best shape. They were humiliated at the hands of Leicester City on the last matchday, as uncertainties arose over their title-winning credentials. We should see a positive response from the Citizens come kickoff.

Leeds vs Manchester City Team News

Even though it is still early days, it is fair to say Leeds United have taken the Premier League by storm. Playing so impressively, the Peacocks are also getting desirable results on board. You just cannot fault this team at the moment.

Toppling the Championship last season, Leeds were streets ahead of every other side in the league. With a staggering return of 93 points from 46 games, they finished at the summit, holding a ten-point buffer over second-placed West Brom.

Now plying their trade in the top-flight, the Whites have quickly gotten their mitts about the weekly hassles of the division. Marcelo Bielsa is the brain behind this fantastic Leeds team, coupling a group of talented players who are driven to fight for the club.

Last time out in the league, Leeds were out to get an out-of-sorts Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, and deemed slight favorites. With their attacking frontline in great form and firing on all cylinders, a flurry of goals was expected.

However, we were made to endure a drab game in South Yorkshire as goals were in short supply. As the game drew to a close, Bamford rose to the occasion, heading the ball home to secure all three points for this side.

Bielsa was sent into frenzy down the touchline as he watched that one go in. Following this narrow win, their next assignment will be a daunting one – upsetting title-challengers Manchester City. 

Clearly one of the best sides in the country, Manchester City are early favorites to lift the Premier League trophy this season. Surprisingly, the Citizens were humbled on the last matchday, losing 5-2 to Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City.

That game must have been very difficult for Guardiola to watch as he witnessed one of his philosophies go to ground. A side known to be sturdy in defense, City shipped five goals in a single PL game – the same number they had conceded in their previous eleven fixtures.

The Spanish gaffer has acted quickly, bringing in Ruben Dias to bolster his defensive options. Surely, City have to secure victory versus Leeds to take some pressure off their shoulders. Given they improve on the defensive front, the Citizens should be the happier side at fulltime.

Leeds: Adam Forshaw and Jay-Roy Grot.
