The Citizens are currently eight points adrift of the Gunners at the time of writing, while the Whites entered the World Cup break in 15th on 15 points.

An EFL Cup exit against Wolverhampton Wanderers preceded another seven-goal thriller for Leeds, although they came out on the wrong end of a 4-3 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on November 12 to leave them sitted just two places above the relegation zone.

Should Leeds lose this week, then they could fall below the dotted line ahead of the New Year, but the Whites can feel satisfied with their form in the winter friendly period, claiming 2-1 victories over Elche and Real Sociedad before losing 4-2 to Monaco.

While scoring in seven of their last eight competitive and non-competitive matches can be viewed in a positive light, failing to keep a single clean sheet in 11 successive games cannot, and just five of Leeds’ 17 Premier League contest at Elland Road this calender year have ended in victory.

It took Erling Braut Haaland all of 10 minutes to return to his scoring ways in Manchester City’s EFL Cup fourth-round tie with Liverpool last week, where further goals from Riyad Mahrez and Nathan Ake cancelled out strikes from Fabio Carvalho and Mohamed Salah to see the Citizens progress to the last eight through a 3-2 victory.

However, Manchester City have serious work to do when it comes to usurping Premier League leaders Arsenal, who have increased their lead over the champions at the top to eight points after beating West Ham United on Boxing Day.

Leeds remarkably prevented Manchester City from winning either of their two meetins in the 2020-21 Premier Lague season, but Pep Guardiola’s side put a whopping 11 past the Whites last season, storming to a 7-0 Etihad victory before claiming a 4-0 win at Elland Road just eight months ago.

In the previous 85 meetings between these two teams, Leeds United have claimed 34 victories while Manchester City have won 38, and they have drawn in 13. Manchester City have scored 139 goals and conceded 111 in the process.
