Last season, the Whites went unbeaten against the Premier League champions.

Leeds held Pep Guardiola’s side to a 1-1 draw at Elland Road, where Rodrigo cancelled out Raheem Sterling’s opener with his first goal for the Whites.

On the reverse, Bielsa’s men claimed a memorable 2-1 win at the Etihad. Stuart Dallas put Leeds ahead on 42 minutes before Liam Cooper was shown red to send the Whites into the interval one goal up but a man down.

The Sky Blues equalised through Ferran Torres with 15 minutes remaining. Leeds resisted City’s attack and hit back on the counter, with Dallas slotting the ball past Ederson to win the game for the Whites.

Of 106 encounters throughout the clubs’ histories, Leeds have claimed 43 wins.

How are Manchester City doing?

City have made a convincing start to their title defence, dropping just eight points across their first 16 games.

Having won all of their last six Premier League matches, Guardiola’s side are at the top of the table.

On Saturday, City beat 10-man Wolves 1-0, with Sterling’s second half penalty the difference at the Etihad.

Last week, City fell to a 2-1 defeat at RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
