Tip: O3.5
Units: 3/5

The early signs indicate that Leeds United are going to be highly entertaining during the 2020/21 Premier League football season, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side serving it up to Liverpool at Anfield before narrowly losing by a 4-3 scoreline.

Leeds then hosted Fulham at Elland Road and managed to come out on the right side of a 4-3, with every indication being that the Yorkshire side will serve it up against a Manchester City side who are pretty ruthless at exposing gaps in any defence.

Manchester City Should Score Goals Against Leeds Defence

Indeed, City managed to claim a 3-1 victory at Molineux in their first game back and that was against a traditionally tough Wolves defence, so they should have some joy against a rearguard who are not dissimilar to the back five that operated in the Championship last term.

You could actually argue that Leeds are defensively weaker now that centre-half Ben White has gone back to parent club Brighton and our prediction is that lots of goals will be scored in this contest at Elland Road.

We’re Betting on Goals to be Scored in Leeds v Man City Match

However, rather than making our tip Manchester City to win or backing Pep Guardiola’s side on the Asian Handicap betting market, we are going to focus on the total goals betting market instead. That means not having to worry about the outcome of the game.

Backing Over 3.5 Goals means we need at least four goals to be scored at Elland Road. That could be a 4-0 win for Manchester City, a 3-1 triumph for the visitors or even a 2-2 draw. 

Kevin de Bruyne should be fit and raring to go, with the Belgian operating in the number ten position and his advanced placement on the pitch should lend an extra attacking threat, while Raheem Sterling also looks lively and Gabriel Jesus is a class operator.

There’s always an element of doubt over the City defence and Leeds have scored seven goals in their two matches to date, so we’re happy to put our faith in the likes of Mateusz Klich, Jack Harrison and even Patrick Bamford to cause a few problems.
