Leeds Utd vs Man City (0-4) Apr 30, 2022 Match Preview and Stats

Manchester City will likely be without John Stones for their Premier League encounter with Leeds on Saturday.

Stones started the Champions League victory over Real Madrid during the week, but was forced off injured in the first half with a muscle problem.

The severity of the injury isn’t yet known, but the England international probably won’t be risked by Pep Guardiola regardless.

Kyle Walker is still out also due to an ankle injury, but might make it for the Champions League semi-final second leg this upcoming Wednesday.

Apart from that duo, Guardiola has a full squad at his disposal for Saturday’s game.

Ederson will start in goal, with Joao Cancelo slotting in at right-back and Oleksandr Zinchenko at left-back. Cancelo was suspended for the Real Madrid game so is well rested for this one.

Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias will continue in the centre of defence.

In midfield, Ilkay Gundogan is pushing for a start and he may be brought in for Bernardo Silva, who would be rested for the next game against Madrid.

Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri will likely continue.

Guardiola has a plethora of options in attack, and Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling could be brought in alongside the in-form Gabriel Jesus.

Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez will be available from the bench.
