The Premier League champions Manchester City will visit Leeds United in a match from the 17th round of the competition. Stay with us and our correct football prediction for the game.
Manchester City are now 5 points behind the leader Arsenal after a surprising loss at home against Brentford before the World Cup break. Nobody expected that City would crumble like that, but now they have some catching up to do. The fans will be curious to see how Pep Guardiola’s team will answer to the challenge.
The defeat against Brentford was more or less shocking for City. Phil Foden scored for the champions, but at the end the Bees secured the win. It was Man City’s second defeat for the season.
Manchester City’s super star Erling Haaland didn’t play at the World Cup, so we expect to see the Norwegian striker as fresh as possible in the league. Haaland still leads the Prem’s goalscoring charts with 18 goals to his name. He’s enjoying impressive debut season in the Premier League – nobody can deny it.
Leeds United approach this game against the Cityzens from 15th place in the standings. The Peacocks also lost their last match before the World Cup break – against Tottenham. They have won just four of their 14 matches in the league so far – certainly not good enough.
Leeds’ manager Jessie Marsch admitted that Leeds can do better in the league – they have the potential. But it’s a difficult competition so every mistake is punished at the end. It’d be curious to see how they will finish the season. Avoiding relegation remains the club’s primary goal.
That’s our correct football prediction for the Premier League game between Leeds United and Manchester City at the Elland Road. Both teams conceded defeats before the World Cup, so they have some catching up to do. City remains favorites, though – they are fighting for the title.
