Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Manchester City and Leeds United.
The Citizens are currently leading the Premier League table with 38 points. Meanwhile, the Whites are 15th on the list with 16 points.
Both sides will be hoping to have a successful game, while Lawrenson backs Pep Guardiola’s side to celebrate another win on Tuesday.
“Leeds took four points off Manchester City last season and beat them at Etihad Stadium, but I don’t see Marcelo Bielsa’s side repeating that feat this time around,” the pundit said on BBC Sport.
“Yes, Leeds put in a very decent performance against Chelsea on Saturday and must feel a bit robbed to have lost out to a last-gasp penalty at Stamford Bridge.
“But they don’t seem to be able to string together two good displays at the moment and I can’t see them pushing City as close.
“City were frustrated by Wolves for long periods on Saturday but Leeds are not a team that will go there and play as defensively that. They will be more open, and City will find a way through.”
Mark Lawrenson’s prediction: 3-0
