Manchester City regained top spot in the Premier League and play their remaining game in hand against Leeds United at home. The Citzens are absolutely flying at home scoring over 3 goals a game at Etihad Stadium and on a superb winning streak of 10+ games in all competitions.
With the Champions League semi-final coming up next midweek Pep may rest a couple of his stars and rotate his squad as it’s expected Leeds United aren’t going to put up too much of a fight given their poor recent run and the fact they have lost 4 of their last 5 games.
There is some positive news for Leeds United in that they have big Sam Allrdyce in the dug out this weekend and it may help get some more energy around the pitch for Leeds United, plus get the defenders to really put their bodies on the line as they fight desperately to stay in the division.
Leeds have one of the leakiest defences in the Premier League and the last thing you need is to come up against a Man City side who are absolutely flying and with Haaland now on 35 goals, he will be looking to break the 40 goal landmark and notch a few against Leeds.
The Juggernaut that is Manchester City are unstoppable at the minute and this should be a stroll in the park for them, a practice match really, as they get ready for Real Madrid next week in the Champions League semi-final.
For Leeds United, they have bigger fish to try to try and say in the Premier League, and this will be a way for Big Sam to get his team to put in a big effort with the aim of getting points in the remaining games.
Manchester City have a huge talent pool to choose from going forward and Alvarez has now come into the team to join Haaland up front and looks an exciting prospect for next season. Foden is getting more minutes and Marhrez is also dangerous. For any opponent, Manchester city are a frightening opposition.
