Manchester City vs Leeds
Tuesday’s marquee Premier League clash will see Manchester City play host to Leeds United at 8 pm UK time.
On paper, the clash looks set to be an entertaining one, with Pep Guardiola and Marcelo Bielsa both well known for their attacking, high-intensity styles.
But, in all honestly, a City win seems like the only realistic outcome on the day. The Sky Blues are playing some superb football of late and have climbed to the summit of the Premier League table.
They have also conceded just nine goals in 16 outings – by far and away the best defensive record in the division.
Leeds, meanwhile, are seemingly suffering from some second-season syndrome, languishing in 15th place in the PL, just five points above 18th-place Burnley who have a game in hand on the Yorkshire outfit.
