BBC pundits Chris Sutton and Micah Richards discussed Leeds United’s game against Manchester City at Elland Road at the end of this month.

Leeds have turned their season around under Jesse Marsch and now look set for another campaign in the Premier League. However, the season is not done yet and they have a bunch of really difficult fixtures coming up.

One of them is against Manchester City at home, and Pep Guardiola’s side will most likely have to win that game if they want to retain their Premier League crown at the end of this campaign.

Sutton, for a second, questioned if Leeds can be trusted against City, but Richards made him take his words back immediately.

Speaking bout City’s upcoming games being easier compared to Liverpool’s, Sutton said on The Monday Night Club: “You look at City, Leeds away, Leeds away, can we judge Leeds?

“What do you mean Leeds away?,” Richards hit back.

“No, I think it’s a tricky fixture,” responded Sutton.

Richards said: “I thought you were disrespecting Leeds there, Leeds away is tough! Elland Road when it’s rocking. Remember the days in League One, they still had 30 odd thousand there. Don’t disrespect Elland Road, please don’t do that!”

Manchester City definitely have an easier run-in than Liverpool on paper, but no game in the Premier League really is easy, is it?

The trip to Elland Road at the end of this month could prove to be a tricky one for City.

The Whites look re-energised under Marsch and they are capable of causing problems to any side in the country, especially in front of a packed Elland Road where the fans are always behind the team.

Manchester City still have the edge over Liverpool in the title race, but Jesse Marsch could do Jurgen Klopp a huge favour by preventing Pep Guardiola’s side from winning when they face Leeds in the final game of this month.
