Everything you need to know ahead of Leeds United's Premier League visit...

team news

Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and John Stones all come into the starting XI as Pep Guardiola makes four changes for the visit of Leeds United.

The returning quartet replace Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling, who drop to the bench and Joao Cancelo, who is suspended after collecting five yellow cards this term

Kyle Walker is short of full fitness and also misses out alongside long-term absentee Ferran Torres, which means there is no recognised right-back in the XI.

CITY: Ederson, Dias (C), Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Mahrez, Foden, Grealish.

SUBS: Steffen, Ake, Sterling, Gundogan, Jesus, Fernandinho, Egan-Riley, Palmer, Wilson-Esbrand.

LEEDS: Meslier, Dallas, Ayling, Llorente, Firpo, Shackleton, Forshaw, Harrison, Raphinha, Roberts, James

SUBS: Klaesson, Gelhardt, Cresswell, Drameh, Summerville, Greenwood, Klich, McCarron, Jenkins.

Pep Guardiola preview

"(Leeds) is one of the toughest opponents. They play every week in a special unique way and we play against the special and unique way just two times a year.

"It is completely different to other opponents. They are going to play in a way we are not used to in these kinds of games.

"At the same time, it is at the Etihad, we know a lot of people will be there and we want to do a good game tomorrow. 

"(Patrick) Bamford was injured for a long time now. Kalvin Phillips, too. A few important players. But if there is one person who doesn’t complain about what happens, it is Marcelo.

"He loves to work when the situation is tough. You have seen the stats and style.

"There is no game where they don’t create more chances than the opponent. We will have to adapt to try and do what we want to do."

Last time out

Raheem Sterling grabbed his 100th Premier League goal as City edged out Wolves 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

The England winger completed his century with a composed penalty after Bernardo Silva's cross had been handled by Joao Moutinho inside the area.

It was also a memorable afternoon for Ederson, who clocked up a century of clean sheets for the Club as a result of his latest shut out.

The visitors had been reduced to ten men on the stroke of half-time after Raul Jimenez was shown two yellow cards in quick succession, but still made Pep Guardiola's men work for our three points.

Form Guide

City come into Tuesday's clash off the back of six successive Premier League victories.

Pep Guardiola's men sit top of the table and boast the best defensive record in the English top flight, conceding on just nine occasions so far this season.

A stoppage time penalty denied Leeds a share of the spoils away to Chelsea in their last outing, which also would have extended their unbeaten run to four matches.

The visitors are currently 15th in the Premier League, five points above the relegation zone.

Previous meeting

A stoppage time winner from Stuart Dallas saw City fall to a 2-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium in last season’s encounter with Leeds.

The visitors registered just two shots on the City goal across the 90 minutes, but Dallas was twice on target to consign Pep Guardiola’s men to only our fourth defeat of the Premier League season.

Ferran Torres had brought City level with 15 to play thanks to a clinical finish from Bernardo Silva’s pass, but a smash and grab win for Leeds was secured following a swift stoppage time counter.
