Leeds United face the unenviable task of travelling to Manchester City this weekend, with Pep Guardiola’s men in full steam ahead mode in their quest for trophies.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men did well enough earlier in the season when coming up against City, drawing 1-1 at Elland Road back in October.
But since then, City seem to have gone from strength to strength. In fairness to Leeds, though, they have maintained their performance levels and are on course for a top half finish if they can maintain that form.
Bielsa faces a couple of big calls this weekend in terms of team selection. Jack Harrison is missing as he can’t play against City, while Bielsa must also decide whether to play Gjanni Alioski at left-back against Pep’s brilliant attack.
The likelihood is that Stuart Dallas will move to the back four at left-back, with Alioski probably filling in for Harrison down the left of the attack, and Matheusz Klich returning to the middle.
Other than that, the XI will pretty much be business as usual for Leeds. Here, then, is how we see the Whites lining up against City today.
