Man City face Leeds in Matchday 35 of the Premier League as both sides look for important wins.

Leeds are currently above the relegation zone on goal difference, but an unlikely win or draw in this fixture could take them above Leicester in the league table.

The Citizens are flying high at the other end of the table as they look to build a four-point lead over second-place challengers Arsenal. Pep Guardiola's side have not lost since February and look unbeatable at the moment.

The Sporting News looks at the potential starting 11 each manager may choose to go with.

Man City vs Leeds lineups

Pep Guardiola is likely to continue playing a 3-2-4-1 formation as central defender John Stones ventures into the midfield. The Spanish manager could, however, rotate a few players as City face Real Madrid in a Champions League semifinal on Tuesday.

As this is Allardyce's first game in charge, and he hasn't been in management for a while, it is unclear how he plans to set his team up. Leeds did play with a back three in their last fixture, something which they could employ again.

Below are the predicted lineups for both teams ahead of their Premier League match at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, May 6.

Man City predicted starting 11

Man City predicted lineup (3-2-4-1): Ederson (GK) — Akanji, Dias, Laporte — Stones, Gundogan — Foden, Alvarez, Silva, Grealish — Haaland

  • Injured: De Bruyne (doubt)
  • Suspended: None

The only reported injury doubt at the moment for the Citizens is Kevin De Bruyne, who has missed the last two games. Guardiola may want to rest him against Leeds and save him for the Champions League.

Leeds predicted starting 11

Leeds predicted lineup (3-4-3): Meslier (GK) — Kristensen, Koch, Wober — Ayling, McKennie, Roca, Harrison — Summerville, Bamford, Gnonto

  • Injured: Stuart Dallas, Tyler Adams, Luis Sinisterra
  • Suspended: None

Stuart Dallas is out for visitors with a broken leg, while Tyler Adams and Luis Sinisterra are both sidelined with thigh injuries. Liam Cooper is a doubt with a muscle problem.
