Leeds United will be visiting the City of Manchester Stadium to face Manchester City for its 17th match of the Premier League. The reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester City is leading the points table this season too, with 38 points in 16 games so far. However, second-placed Liverpool is close on its heels, with 37 points.
Leeds United, who have played well in the past few seasons, is currently placed at the 15th spot in its second consecutive Premier League appearance. It is just 6 points ahead of the bottom three teams at the moment and while we think it should be able to stay up, relegation is always a sword hanging over its head. Leeds is the clear underdog and you can get some astronomical odds on it to win. In fact, most betting sites are offering pretty long odds even for a draw in this match.
Manchester City, who moved to the top of the table by taking advantage of Chelsea’s shock loss to West Ham, will be looking to pick up three points in order to extend its lead.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Manchester City vs Leeds United, Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester on the 14th of December, 2021.
Injury woes for Manchester City seem to be mounting. Ferran Torres, although recovering, will most likely be sitting out for the match. Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus too will be unavailable for the game due to knock injury. They will be relying on Kevin De Bruyne, who has recovered from CoViD and showed fine play against RB Leipzig in their Champion’s League fixture. Guardiola will mostly be seen playing with a 4-3-3 formation.
As for Leeds, the team may miss out on Kalvin Phillips, who is out with a hamstring injury, as well as Robin Koch.
While Bielsa has nurtured Leeds and helped them throw some surprises in the past, the team looks no match for the Blues on paper. The game will likely see a convincing win for Guardiola’s men.
Bet on a Manchester City win.
Leeds and Manchester City are right at the opposite ends of the spectrum right now when to comes to quality and consistency. Manchester City has a world-class offense and a defensive lineup that often goes underrated. WIth the second-best record in the Premier League 2021-22 season so far, in terms of conceding goals, we expect City to lock down Leeds in this match and keep a clean sheet.
