There is a very close tussle going on for the top spot of the Premier League, as Manchester City climbs to the first spot with a one-point differential with Arsenal. On Saturday, the Citizens will be hosting struggling Leeds United at the Etihad Stadium. Both teams are desperate for a win to strengthen their position in the Premier League point table.
Manchester City is currently leading the Premier League with 79 points and 25 wins and they are just one point ahead of Arsenal with 1 match less played.
Leeds United is currently struggling at the 17th spot trying not to get relegated after the end of this season.
We expect plenty of goals from the Citizens.
The betting tip is...
Man City to score over 2.5 goals.
With an unbeaten streak of 19 games, the Citizens have reached the top one more time and they still have high hopes for the Premier League title.
In the previous fixture, Manchester City defeated West Ham by 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium. With possession of 69%, the home team dominated the game with goals from Nathan Ake, Erling Haaland, and Phil Foden.
Kevin De Bruyne is expected to return as he has marked his absence in the last two games.
Predicted Lineup: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Akanji; Rodri, Gundogan; Foden, Alvarez, Grealish; Haaland
The Peacocks have struggled this season as well and they are again trying to save themselves from getting relegated from the Premier League.
Currently, Leeds United is in the 17th position with 30 points and only 7 wins. They are in close contest with Leicester City and Nottingham Forest and to avoid relegation, Leeds United is in desperate need of a win.
Wober, Sinisterra, Dallas and Adams are out of action because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Meslier (GK), Cooper, Ayling, Koch, Firpo, Roca, Harrison, McKennie, Rodrigo, Bamford & Sinisterra
The Citizens are clearly the favourites for the upcoming fixture because of their strong defence and attack structure.
Leeds United will find themselves in a troubled situation and we predict an easy win for Manchester City on Saturday.
