With 2 wins and a draw in our last 3 games, 42 points on the board
WE ARE SAFE AND WILL BE PLAYING IN THE PL 2021/22
This fixture will be our toughest this season imo and in a way is a free hit, nobody will expect us to get anything from this game and id say even the bookmakers will have city -2 goals on the handicap.
This will be the 106th Game between these two sides with Kick Off @ 12:30 Saturday morning, so set those alarm clocks early, Leeds have won 42, Drawn 18 & Lost 45 and in the premier league era played 15 Leeds won 6, Drawn 5 & Lost 4 with Leeds having scored 19 goals and conceded 16 in them 15 games but all of us on here are too well aware this Man City side is nothing like what we have played in the past (apart for last October game 1-1 Draw).

And last by by no mean least the famous 3 balled ace fighter pilot Group Captain Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader, CBE,DSO & Bar,DFC & Bar,DL,FRAeS. Dougie as the lads called him followed Man City all his life and a to honor the great man a pub across the road from the "emptyhad" was named after him.
The gulf in playing squads, financial status between the two Clubs is like chalk and cheese. But its 11 v 11 and with this game sandwiched between Man City's CL Q/Final games against Dortmund, i'm hoping Pep will rest KDB & Dias in particular, eventhough as i say they have many a world class player to takeover and will want to show pep they should on the CL team.
Despite struggling at times against Leicester last time out, all the signs seem to point to a Man City win here. The Citizens have lost just one of their last 31 Premier League games against newly-promoted sides (Norwich City last season). Guardiola is also unbeaten in his three managerial meetings with Bielsa to date, winning two and drawing the other. Still, given how much emphasis both managers place upon attack, I expect this to be a free-flowing affair with plenty of goals.
Possible Starting 11's
Leeds XI: Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas, Phillips, Klich, Costa, Roberts, Alioski, Bamford
Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Mendy, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Foden, Mahrez, Sterling, Torres
