Leeds vs Manchester City: Premier League preview

B

y the time Manchester City kick-off away at Leeds United on Saturday, they will know whether or not they will once again become the chasers.

With Liverpool in action away at Newcastle earlier in the day, the pressure could be put on City, who also have the daunting prospect of a trip to Real Madrid early next week.

Leeds vs Manchester City team news

John Stones is a doubt after limping off against Madrid, along with Kyle Walker.

Joao Cancelo, however, will surely play after sitting out of the Champions League thriller through suspension. Elsewhere, it seems reasonable to expect starts for the likes of Jack Grealish, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling given the tight turnaround in games.

For Leeds, Mateusz Klich will likely start despite being hauled off at half-time against Crystal Palace.
