Team news

Sergio Aguero (knee), Joao Cancelo (foot), and Gabriel Jesus (muscular) will all miss the trip to Leeds.

Ilkay Gundogan and John Stones missed the midweek game with Burnley and are unlikely to feature.

Oleksandr Zinchenko will miss the next few weeks after picking up another knock.

Leeds will also be without several players.

Pablo Hernandez  won't be fit until after the international break and Jack Harrison, on loan from City, cannot face his parent club.

Adam Forshaw and Gaetano Berardi are long-term absentees.

Last meeting

City beat Leeds 4-0 at the Etihad in February 2013.

The teams haven't met at Elland Road since March 2004, with Leeds winning 2-1.

Form guide

Since the Premier League restart in June, we have won 13 of our 18 matches in all competitions.

Leeds started the season with a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool before losing to penalties against Hull City in the Carabao Cup.

They then beat Fulham 4-3 in the Premier League followed by a 1-0 win away to Sheffield United.

Manager preview

Pep Guardiola:

"What could I say about Bielsa? I think he’s probably the person I admire the most in world football as a manager and as a person.

"I think he is the most authentic manager all the time in terms of how he conducts his teams, he is unique.

"No one can imitate him, it's impossible. Especially his behaviour as a person off the pitch.

"I don't see him every week but I have had the pleasure to spend time with him.

"My theory is the manager is not about the titles because I feel far away from his knowledge.

"My teams won more titles than him, but in terms of knowledge of the game, I am away from him.

"It is a good present, a good gift to have him in the Premier League. His teams are a joy to watch, how honest they are and they always try to produce good football for spectators. It’s good to have him here."

Marcelo Bielsa:

“It’s one of the biggest games in the Premier League.

“We will try to play the same way we always do, we wouldn’t know how to do it any other way.

“I never find it very comfortable to talk about an opponent’s weaknesses.

“The season is very short and it’s very hard to make conclusions as to whether they are weaker than before.

“But to talk about an opponent’s weakness in public is never a comfortable thing.”

“Good players, and Aguero is a good player, are always helpful for a team.

“I would say the same thing about Jesus and the same thing about Raheem Sterling.

“I think that Sterling is a great attacker, playing out wide or through the middle, he’s a goal-scorer.

“So I don’t think it’s a problem that City won’t resolve.”
