Manchester City travel to Elland Road today, Saturday April 30, looking to maintain their position at the summit of the Premier League table.
Pep Guardiola’s side will head into the game following Liverpool’s trip to St James’ Park. Both sides know that any dropped points between now and the end of the season is likely to be fatal in their pursuit of the Championship.
Leeds United, meanwhile, have a major objective of their own. They currently sit five points above the drop zone having played a game more than 18th placed Everton. Victory for City would complete their first league double over Leeds since 1981-82 — a season that also saw the Whites relegated from the top flight.

What is the early Leeds United vs Manchester City team news?
Kyle Walker is unavailable for City again. The England full-back has been out of action since suffering injury in the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico Madrid earlier this month.
John Stones will also not feature after leaving the pitch with an injury against Real Madrid earlier this week. Guardiola turned to the experience of Fernandinho to fill in on the night but will have Joao Cancelo available this weekend after his European suspension.
Leeds themselves have one or two injury concerns. The most notable absentee is Patrick Bamford. Injuries have plagued the Englishman’s season leaving Leeds with little to no options up top. Tyler Roberts, another forward option in the Leeds ranks, is also out.
