Leeds has shown signs of resurgence. However, in front of a very good team like Manchester City, their ability to create surprises is really not high.
Leeds has risen to 16th place in the rankings, 5 points ahead of the relegation group, but played 1 match before. Since firing coach Bielsa to appoint Jesse Marsch. Leeds have improved significantly, their defense has improved in a very clear way. Before that, they often had to receive destruction from opponents.
Calculating, the last 5 rounds, Leeds has an unbeaten record, of which won 3 matches. However, it must be admitted that they have not encountered a strong opponent, the most appreciated team is only Wolves or Crystal Palace. Obviously, Leeds needed a heavy dose of reagents to test its true ability. It difficult for Leeds to create a surprise. Even lose the gap.
Manchester City have just won against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. This result also partly helps them gain an advantage in the second leg on the opponent’s field. Now is the time for Guardiola’s teachers and students to focus on the English Premier League, where they are competing fiercely with Liverpool for the championship.
It can be seen that the recent form of Manchester City players is very impressive. Especially the ability to score goals has exploded again when continuously shooting in the matches played. Striker Jesus is playing sublime when consecutively scoring, even in the match against Watford, the Brazilian striker made a Poker shot. Morale is very high. Although he may play with the reserve team, in the hands of coach Guardiola has a very deep squad. Maybe this doesn’t affect their performance much either.
