On Saturday, Leeds United will host Manchester City at Elland Road in the Premier League. The Sky Blues come into the match with an emphatic 4-3 victory over Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals.

The Whites were grounded at a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace.  They remain just five points clear of Everton who are at the third bottom.

Team News

Adam Forshaw picked up a knee injury during training and remains doubtful. Patrick Bamford (foot) and Tyler Roberts (hamstring) are set to miss the rest of the season following injury woes.

Jesse Marsch will probably go for the 4-2-3-1 formation similar to the last game. Kalvin Phillips will continue following Adam Forshaw’s absence.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup Vs Manchester City

Defence

Illan Meslier will start in goal for the upcoming encounter. The French shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet.

Liam Cooper will form the centre-half partnership with Diego Llorente at the heart of the Whites’ backline.

Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas haven’t missed a single match this season and are set to start in the wing-back positions. They will look to stretch the opposition’s defence and create chances for the forwards.

Midfield

Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich will anchor the midfield as they exploit the Mancunian giants’ defence. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the men up front.

Raphinha and Jack Harrison will take up the wide positions, playing down the right and left-wing, respectively. Rodrigo will remain in the central attacking midfield to bolster the attack.

Attack

Daniel James might lead the line against the Sky Blues, and the striker will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net, although City’s defence have conceded only three goals in the last five Premier League matches.
