Leeds United vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
After a positive start to the campaign quickly faded, Leeds was rejuvenated by wins over Liverpool and Bournemouth. However, a 4-3 loss at Tottenham highlighted their frailties, with the Whites leading three times in London but blowing it late on. Performances are still too erratic to gain any momentum, and manager Jesse Marsch needs to find ways of controlling games better. Marsch has come under heavy fire from a section of fans this season, and Leeds returns to action just two points above the relegation zone. Their situation is unlikely to improve before the turn of the year, with this daunting test followed by a tough trip to Newcastle. They romped to a 4-0 victory at Elland Road last term after routing the Whites 7-0 in Manchester! Adam Forshaw has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Rodrigo is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
City’s sky-high standards have slipped slightly this term, losing to Liverpool and Brentford, as well as dropping points against Newcastle and Villa. However, they are still odds-on to reel in Arsenal over the second part of the season and complete a hat-trick of title triumphs. The Blues blew away any cobwebs with Thursday’s 3-2 defeat of Liverpool in a high-class EFL Cup thriller. Haaland, Riyad Mahrez, and Nathan Ake netted as City led 18-7 in attempts on goal and 9-2 with regard to shots on target. Kevin de Bruyne disappointed at the World Cup with Belgium but rediscovered his spark, providing two assists and generally dominating throughout. Phil Foden shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
