Paul Merson has predicted on SportsKeeda that Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United will lose against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City this weekend.
Leeds will take on Manchester City at Elland Road in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Former Arsenal star and Sky Sports pundit Merson believes that the Citizens will pick up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 3-0 win.
Merson wrote on SportsKeeda: “I see nothing but a City win here. Liverpool will probably win their game, so this is another massive match for them.
“Leeds have been harder to beat since their new manager has come in, but I don’t see how they’ll stop Manchester City.”
Who will win Leeds United v Manchester City?
In our opinion, Manchester City will head into the match against Leeds as clear favourites.

Yes, the Whites are doing well under Marsch, but City have one of the best squads in entire Europe and are in great form at the moment.
True, Elland Road is not an easy place to go to, but the City players will be well aware of that.
City have some world-class players, and they thrive under pressure.
Now, of course, Leeds can spring a surprise, and we should not discount late drama.
However, in our opinion, the match is City’s to lose.
City will know that they have to continue to win matches in order to win the Premier League title for the second season in a row.
