Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
Key Stat: Manchester City have won 12 games out of 16 at home this season, 4 more than their nearest challengers.
Expert Verdict: Although it is now an orderly procession before Manchester City are presented with the Premier League trophy, they are still fighting on four fronts and will want to wrap up the title at the earliest opportunity so they can switch attention to the League Cup, the FA Cup and the Champions League. Leeds United have had a trouble free return to the top flight, in their first season in the division since 2004 they have never looked like relegation candidates. Back to back victories over Fulham and Sheffield United have ensured that a slim chance of being drawn into a battle at the bottom has quickly been extinguished.
Both Manchester City and Leeds United can consider their Premier League campaigns to have been a success this year. Manchester City are a maximum of four wins away from their third title in four and Leeds United’s place in the top flight next season is assured after reaching 42 points. The Premier League match takes place on April 10 and the live action kicks off at 12:30 local time.

The game finished 1-1 in the reverse fixture back in October when Raheem Sterling opened the scoring in the first half before Rodrigo Moreno equalised in the 59th minute at Elland Road. That match was the first league meeting between the sides since Leeds’ relegation from the Premier League in 2004. Overall, Manchester City just about have the edge over Leeds United with 45 wins to 42, there have been 18 draws.
Manchester City are favourites and can be backed at 5/18 with 10Bet to win
Both teams to score and City to win has been set at 17/10 with Betway
Sergio Aguero is 20/21 with 10Bet to score at any time
You would imagine that Marco Bielsa would not allow his side to cruise from now until the end of the season, but it will be very hard for Leeds to have the same level of intensity now their place in next season’s Premier League is secure. For Man City on the other hand, Pep Guardiola’s team still have many targets to accomplish and all the players will be keen to secure their spots in the starting line-up ahead of all the big matches. We are backing Man City to register another comfortable victory.
