Man City travel to face Leeds on Saturday as the Cityzens look to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League in a nerve-shredding title race.

Pep Guardiola's side hit Real Madrid for four in midweek, but they were stung by a combination of inexplicable errors and clinical finishing in a 4-3 first leg victory which ensures there's still all to play for in the Bernabeu next week.

Leeds, meanwhile, had to settle for a point in their trip to Crystal Palace last time out, with Jesse Marsch's side nervously looking over their shoulder with only a five-point cushion separating them from the relegation zone.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Leeds team news

Mateusz Klich was withdrawn at the interval at Selhurst Park last time out, although he is expected to start here after Marsch confirmed that his departure was tactical rather than enforced.

The boss also confirmed Patrick Bamford will return to training next week, while Jamie Shackleton is inching closer to a return. Adam Forshaw and Tyler Roberts are unlikely to feature for the rest of the season and young Crysencio Summerville is also out.


Man City team news

John Stones was forced off in the first half of City's win over Real Madrid in midweek and, with Joao Cancelo serving a suspension in Europe, Guardiola was forced to turn to Fernandinho at right full-back.

The Portuguese will be available for the trip to Elland Road, while City will hope Kyle Walker can recover in time for the return leg at the Bernabeu after struggling with injury over the last week.


Leeds vs Man City score prediction

City's squad depth is such that there should be no danger of a hangover from their midweek Champions League exertions against Real Madrid.

Guardiola is likely to rotate his attacking trio and, whoever is selected, they will be licking their lips against a Leeds side who own the third worst goal difference in the division this season.

Leeds are likely to press high in search of precious points in their bid to avoid the drop, so expect City to rack up the goals at Elland Road.

Prediction: Leeds 0-3 Man City
