Pep Guardiola spoke of his admiration for the side his counterpart, Marcelo Bielsa, has built in recent years during his pre-match press conference and insists City are braced for another tough test.
October’s 1-1 draw saw City pushed to our absolute limits in a thrilling clash at Elland Road, and the players steeled themselves for a similarly tricky task in Saturday’s reverse fixture.
As always, there were plenty of smiles on show at the CFA but they were accompanied by an intense focus on preparing properly for tomorrow's matchup at the Etihad Stadium.
Keep an eye out too for some of City’s young guns in training ahead of our Elite Development Squad’s (EDS) Premier League 2 clash with Liverpool at 7pm, which is available to watch with a CITY+ subscription.
A special We’re Not Really Here (#WNRH) show, featuring former City defenders Nedum Onuoha and Joleon Lescott as well as The Wanted’s Max George, will also be broadcast from 6 on all of our digital platforms.
