Leeds United – Manchester City
Leeds United will try to continue their great performance in the Premier League when they face Manchester City at the Elland Road on Saturday. That’s our football prediction betting tips today for this fixture.
The newcomers Leeds are impressive so far. They scored three goals against Liverpool in the first round and they won their next two matches against Fulham and Sheffield United. Because of this the Peacocks are now 7th in the league standings with 6 points won. More and more you are going to hear the “Viva Bielsa” chants from the club’s fans, we are sure about this.
In the previous round Leeds had a tough visit to Sheffield United which they won with 1-0 at the Bramall Lane. The only goal in the match was scored in the 88th minute when Patrick Bamford put the ball behind Aaron Ramsdale’s back. Two wins from the first three games – this is exactly how Leeds hoped to start the season.
Manchester City are probably not in their best condition at the moment. In the previous round they suffered their first loss for the season and it was a humilating one. Guardiola’s team hosted Leciester City at the Etihad, but suffered a 2-5 defeat. The fans were not happy with this and they have a point – conceding five goals at home is never a good thing. Mahrez and Ake scored for the Cityzens, but it was far from enough.
Could Pep Guardiola actually be sacked? That’s an interesting question. The Catalan manager was never sacked so far in his career, but there’s always a first time, right?
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League fixture between Leeds United and Manchester City. Pep Guardiola will face one of his biggest inspirations as a manager – Marcelo Bielsa. But can he beat him? Let’s see.
