The last time Leeds hosted Manchester City in the Premier League, Netflix were still selling DVDs, so their clash will be eagerly awaited in West Yorkshire.
But with a number of compelling storylines heading into the game, this match is arguably the first “must-see” of the season.
Leeds have been scintillating to watch and look right at home back in the big time.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will relish a game against his hero Marcelo Bielsa, but he will also be determined to win after an embarrassing 5-2 loss at Leicester.

Our Top Pick – Over 3.5 Match Goals – 5/6 at Bet365
Leeds have hit the ground running so far, scoring eight goals in three games and giving Liverpool all they could handle in a thrilling 4-3 defeat at Anfield.
Patrick Bamford has scored twice, silencing the critics who said he couldn’t cut it in the Premier League.
An impressive Manchester City win at Wolves was followed by an embarrassing loss at Leicester.
But goals have never been in short supply for City, as they have averaged more than two a game.
Our Long Shot – Leeds to Win – 7/1 at Betfair
You can make a really strong case for Leeds winning this one, yet the bookies are not convinced, installing them as long shots across the board.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have won two on the trot, are scoring for fun, and have shown they can keep a clean sheet, yet you can back them as high as 7/1.
A lot of this is based on the fact that Manchester City have not lost two league games on the bounce since December 2018.
But if this season, and in fact this year has taught us anything, it’s that you can expect the unexpected!
Our Extra Pick – Patrick Bamford to Score Anytime – 11/4 at SportNation
