Manchester City come into the Saturday fixture hoping to turn around their fortune after a humiliating 5-2 home defeat to Leicester City last weekend.

The result left Pep Guardiola’s side in 13th place with just three points, although they have played a game less than their opponents.

Leeds return to the top flight after a 16-year hiatus has began well as they sit in seventh place after two successive wins, following an opening day loss to champions Liverpool.

City have only lost one of 31 games they have played against promoted teams and this Leeds side seems more equipped than the Norwich that beat them last season.

What time does Leeds vs Man City start?

The game kicks off at 7:30 pm Kenyan time at Elland Road.
