Manchester City welcome Leeds United to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon in the weekend’s early kick-off.

When the sides last met, Rodrigo earned Leeds a deserved 1-1 draw in a competitive clash, but the 11th-placed club face a tough test today.

League leaders Man City are 14 points ahead of second-placed rivals United, who have a match in hand, heading into the final stretch of the campaign.
