Leeds v Man City on Saturday at 17:30

It’s a tough one to call, this. I’m going to actually sit on the fence in terms of a match result because I don’t like the short price of Manchester City but you wouldn’t be surprised if they go on and win it easily as well and I’m not happy to have Leeds onside, either.

Over 3.5 Goals

What I do like here though is the goals market so I’m looking at Over 3.5 Goals as a fine play here.

In the five games these teams have played this season, three of them have had seven goals and I saw Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa saying after their 4-3 win over Fulham that they’re not content to sit back and protect a lead.

It will be interesting to see if he takes that approach when they face Man City this weekend but from what we saw against Liverpool on the opening day, Leeds certainly have the players to get at Man City.

City, away to Wolves on the opening day, were very good and dominated that game but they did concede late on and followed that up by conceding five at Leicester last week. I don’t expect a clean sheet from either team here and I think it will be a great game.

Mateusz Klich to Score First

I’m going for Leeds’s penalty taker Mateusz Klich to Score First. He’s a big price but we’ve seen 20 penalties already in the Premier League this season.

Klich dispatched a penalty very confidently against Fulham and Man City gave away two against Leicester last week so we could easily see Leeds awarded another one here.

He can score from open play as well as we saw against Liverpool and is a really attractive option in the goal scorer markets here.

Patrick Bamford’s scored three in three but Klich’s price is a lot better than Bamford’s and definitely represents more value.
