Manchester City can take another step towards regaining the Premier League title when they welcome Leeds United to Etihad Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

The champions-elect have won 27 of their last 28 games in all competitions, and three points in this one would move them to within eight of winning the league.

Manchester City vs Leeds United Latest Odds

Given that sequence of results, it is no surprise to see City as 2/7 (1.28) favourites with bet365 to pick up another victory here.

Leeds have only won three games against top-half teams this season and are out at 9/1 (10.0) to stun Pep Guardiola’s men.

These teams played out an entertaining 1-1 draw at Elland Road earlier in the campaign and another stalemate is 19/4 (5.75).

Manchester City vs Leeds United Team News

Guardiola has the luxury of a fully-fit squad for this one ahead of their Champions League second leg against Borussia Dortmund next week, meaning Sergio Aguero, Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake could all be given starts.

Jack Harrison is ineligible to face his parent club and is likely to be replaced by Helder Costa in the starting lineup, while Adam Forshaw is a long-term absentee.

Manchester City vs Leeds United Preview

There appears to be no stopping Man City as they romp towards a third Premier League title in four years, with the league leaders having dropped three of the last available 57 points, scoring 46 goals in that time.

While they should be able to extend that streak on Saturday, their last six home games in all competitions have yielded just a single clean sheet and Leeds certainly have enough to exploit that.

Bielsa’s side have scored twice in each of their last two games and only failed to net in three of their 15 away Premier League fixtures this season.

Manchester City vs Leeds United Tips and Predictions

City to win and both teams to score looks to hold terrific value at 8/5 (2.60) with bet365 for this Premier League clash, having paid out in four of the hosts’ last six on this ground.

Also, Leeds have scored in seven of their 10 defeats against top-half teams this term.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
