Leeds United vs Manchester City Prediction
Leeds United are currently 15th in the league, two points ahead of 18th-placed Nottingham Forest, who have played a game more. Manager Jesse Marsch has come under scrutiny following a poor start to the league campaign but has managed to hold on during the World Cup break.
Few expect them to win against Manchester City, but the pressure on Marsch is incredibly high. The Leeds United hierarchy have taken a gamble by not making a move during the World Cup break, and will hope that they don't regret that.
Manchester City, on the other hand, are second in the league, five points behind league leaders Arsenal. For all their attacking quality, Guardiola's side have looked surprisingly vulnerable at times in defense. However, when you have a striker like Erling Haaland, there is a good chance that in most cases, you will outscore your opponent.
Manchester City will be the favorites to win.
