Game week 3 ended with lots of drama with 37 goals scored. So far this season, 18 penalties have been awarded to 12 teams with Leicester city getting 5 penalty calls. Here is a look at what Game week 4 might look like.
Leeds United Vs Manchester City
Premier League’s newly promoted side, Leeds will be welcoming arguably one of the most
successful EPL clubs in recent times, Mancity to their home ground, Elland Road. Leeds
won 2 of the 3 games played so far with their latest win coming from Sheffield’s home
Leeds players so far have been seen and known to run, cover ground and score but they’ve
conceded 7 goals so far and that vulnerable side might be exploited by Man City who are
known to be prolific upfront. Marcelo Bielsa’s men will be looking to win three consecutive PL
games for the 1st time since 2003 and will have to be more coordinated while playing a team
like Man City. Although, Marcelo Bielsa has promised that his team will play the same way
they have always done.
Manchester City, known to be big spenders in the EPL welcomed Centre Back, Ruben Dias
after an embarrassing 2-5 defeat to Leicester City at home (Etihad) last game week. Pep
Guardiola’s defence proved to be one of the downfalls of the team last season and it still
looks like a source of concern for the manager. So far, they have spent nothing less than
110 million Pounds on defensive reinforcement and Pep will be hoping these manifest into
improving his team defensively while Champions League Midfielder of the season, Kevin De
Bruyne and the rest of the team try to create more chances and score more goals.
Last time they met in the EPL was in 2004, where Leeds beat Manchester City by 2 goals to
1 but tides have changed and Manchester City have won 4 EPL trophies since then.
Manchester City have also won 30 of their last 31 PL matches against newly promoted
sides, losing away Norwich in 2019/20 season. Though facing a stubborn side, Manchester
City should be able to nick 3 points in this game and to help them move closer to the EPL
