Leeds v Man City Betting Tips & Predictions

Manchester City saw Arsenal register another win on Boxing Day and know they need a victory here to keep the pressure on. 

Newcastle’s win on the 26th pushed the defending champions down to third in the table. 

Leeds are 15th at the time of writing, but Jesse Marsch is facing an almighty injury crisis with up to 11 players unavailable. 

Tyler Adams, Stuart Dallas and Archie Gray are confirmed absentees. Illan Meslier, Rodrigo, Patrick Bamford and Luis Sinisterra are among a lengthy list of doubtful players.

Ruben Dias, Kalvin Phillips and Julian Alvarez are all out for the visitors.

First Goalscorer: Erling Haaland

12/5 (Unibet)

Erling Haaland is refreshed after the World Cup. 

Haaland has scored five more Premier League goals than anyone else, and meets a Leeds back line which has conceded seven goals over its last two matches and 12 over its last five. 

Haaland is typically a very short price to score anytime, so the first goalscorer market looks better value. 

With Alvarez unavailable, there’s not even any risk of Guardiola resting the Norwegian phenom. 

Match Result and Both Teams To Score: Manchester City And Yes

8/5 (Bet365)

Both teams have scored in four of City’s last five matches in all competitions. 

Only three Premier League teams have seen BTTS land more frequently than Leeds, who have failed to score just twice at home this season.

With City showing some vulnerability at the back this term and Leeds carrying some good goal scoring form into this match, adding BTTS to a City win is a good way to find an appealing price.

Total Corners: Over 9.5

4/5 (Betway)

There aren’t generally that many corners in City’s matches due to their overwhelming control, and the fact they concede just 2.1 per match. 

Leeds average 5.3 in their favour per fixture, however, and they will be unafraid to commit bodies forward when they win the ball.

There has been double-digit corner kicks in each of Leeds’ last four matches in all competitions. Only Liverpool have had more corner kicks per 90 than City.
