Match details

Leeds United vs Manchester City

Premier League

Elland Road

29th December, 01:30 am


Defending champions Manchester City will look to resume their Premier League campaign with a win when they visit Elland Road to face Leeds United.

With most Premier League sides playing their first games after the break, Manchester City find themselves pushed into the third spot following Newcastle United’s win over Leicester City. Additionally, Arsenal’s win over West Ham United increased the gap at the top to eight points. Hence, a win is key for the reigning champions to regain the second spot.

Leeds United, on the other hand, are in 15th place with just two points and two places separating them from the relegation zone.

Leeds manager Jesse Marsch will rue the timing of the clash, considering the humongous list of potential absentees he has before the game. As many as twelve players could miss out on the home clash with Manchester City

Because of their away form and Leeds United’s injuries, Manchester City will be heavy favourites to win.
