After recovering from a case of glandular fever, Illan Meslier is healthy enough to start in goal for Leeds. Tyler Adams, the USA’s World Cup captain, is suspended following his red card at Tottenham before to the competition in Qatar. Adam Forshaw therefore gets the ball in midfield. Sam Greenwood, who is also starting, may play in a midfield three. Jack Harrison and Crysencio Summerville sit on the bench while Wilfried Gnonto, who performed admirably in the aforementioned friendlies, gets the start.

With Kyle Walker on the bench, along Joao Cancelo, Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva, and Phil Foden, Rico Lewis gets his first Premier League start for Manchester City. In his hometown, Erling Haaland makes his debut up front against the team he backs.

The former Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips is on the bench after Pep Guardiola determined that he had returned from the World Cup overweight. After Argentina’s World Cup success, Julian Alvarez was given time off, while defender Ruben Dias is out with a hamstring injury.

Manchester City have made a good start by establishing control of possession. Particularly Haaland appears to be in good shape and his movement already appears to be posing a challenge for the home team. After a rocky start, Leeds improved and played solid defence, limiting Erling Haaland to two shots that Ilan Meslier stopped.

Jack Grealish also had an easy chance to score but missed it. All of Leeds’ hard work, though, was undone by Kevin De Bruyne’s squared pass across the face of the penalty box in the closing play of the first half. Rodri assisted Mahrez in getting the ball, and he was there once again to aid Mahrez score when Meslier made a stop from the Algerian international.

Grealish intercepted the ball at midfield, ran into the penalty area, and squared it to his teammate for an easy finish that gave City a two-goal advantage early in the second half. The City duo teamed up once more to score City’s third goal. Haaland finished off a superb one-two in front of the Leeds goal with a flawless first-time effort for his 26th goal across all competitions this season.

The hosts, who concluded the day in 15th place with 15 points, managed to get one back through Pascal Struijk in the 73rd minute, but it was too late. Man City’s next encounter is against Everton at home on New Year’s Eve, while Leeds travels to St. James’ Park to play third-place Newcastle United.
