Leeds United and Manchester City face off in an English Premier League showdown on Saturday at Elland Road.
Manchester City is dealing with some injuries and it really showed in their last Premier League game, a shocking loss to Leicester City. Manchester City’s first game of the year was against the Wolves, a game they had no issue winning 3-1. Kevin De Bruyne opened up the scoring in the 20th minute and they never looked back. In the second game of the season it was against Leicester City, Manchester City actually opened up the scoring in that game, but the defense really let them down and that led to a 5-2 loss. The big problem for Manchester City in that game was with their defense inside the box and they gave up three penalty kicks. Leeds United is an offense that has shown they have goal-scoring ability and Manchester City needs to have better defense.
On the other side of this matchup is Leeds United who currently sit in 7th place inside the Premier League. After losing to Liverpool in the first game of the season, Leeds United has won their last two games. Leeds United beat Fulham two games ago, a game they were able to put up four goals in. During the last game, In the last game against Sheffield United, the offense wasn’t elite, but they were able to score a goal in the 88th minute to come away with the victory. In the last game, Leeds did have 64 percent of the possession and they had 81 percent pass accuracy. In this game the offense will need to be good, but they need to try and keep this game low scoring. If Manchester scores three or four goals, Leeds is going to be an issue.
These are two offenses who are strong and that is going to continue in this game. Look for a high scoring game that goes well over the posted total.
