    13 Steffen, 5 Stones, 6 Ake, 20 Bernardo Silva, 25 Fernandinho, 48 Delap, 80 Palmer.

    MANCHESTER CITY XI

    There's a debut for new Manchester City signing Ruben Dias, who lines up in central defence alongside the returning Aymeric Laporte; the pair replace Nathan Ake and Eric Garcia. Elsewhere, there's a start for young Ferran Torres, in for Fernanindho, as Pep Guardiola switches some positions around to field his usual 4-3-3.

    31 Ederson, 2 Walker, 3 Dias, 14 Laporte, 22 Mendy, 16 Rodri, 17 De Bruyne, 47 Foden, 26 Mahrez, 7 Sterling, 21 Torres.

    LEEDS UNITED XI

    As expected, it's just one change for Leeds United with Gjanni Alioski replacing the ineligible Jack Harrison. It looks as though Marcelo Bielsa has his team set up in a flexible 4-2-3-1 formation, but expect that to change at frequent intervals.

    1 Meslier, 2 Ayling, 5 Koch, 6 Cooper, 15 Dallas, 23 Phillips, 43 Klich, 17 Costa, 11 Roberts, 10 Alioski, 9 Bamford.

    HERNANDEZ MUCH MISSED

    Leeds United’s Pablo Hernandez has been ruled out of this evening's encounter with a groin injury, and it could prove a big miss for Bielsa's team.

    The 35-year-old Spaniard scored three league goals against Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona for Valencia between 2009 and 2011, with only Diego Forlán (4) and Jamie Vardy (8) scoring more top-flight goals against teams managed by Guardiola in his career.

    RADEBE READY FOR A FIGHT

    Leeds legend Lucas Radebe knows his former club are up against it this evening, but believes they can pull off a surprise win.

  • Jim Sheridan

    WHO WILL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH?

    Micah Richards, probably.

    BLAST FROM THE PAST

    A lot of water has travelled under the bridge since these clubs last met in the league.

    Not to mention countless millions, many trophies and much falling apart – but they’re together again today.

    WELCOME TO ELLAND ROAD

    It’s Yorkshire versus Lancashire. It’s Marcelo Bielsa versus Pep Guardiola. It’s…erm…Patrick Bamford versus…Liam Delap, maybe? It’s our live coverage of Leeds United versus Manchester City in the Premier League!

    Sixteen years have passed since these two famous clubs last faced off in the top tier, and their journeys to today’s meeting point could not have been more different.

    Yet they arrive on an equal footing, and led by two of the most appreciated managers in the game. Bielsa and Guardiola’s relationship stretches beyond mutual admiration, with both viewing the other as a friend and master tactician.

    However, the pair aren’t close enough for Pep to allow Jack Harrison a game on the Leeds left flank; the on-loan midfielder is ineligible to face his parent club this evening.

    Veteran playmaker Pablo Hernandez is also missing with a groin injury so it could mean a first start at the top level for Gjanni Alioski.

    The Whites have impressed many on their return to the big time, and are now chasing a third straight Premier League win which would be the most eye-catching of the lot.

    The promoted club will fancy their chances of an upset a lot more than when the fixtures were first announced, especially having witnessed City’s capitulation at home to Leicester.

    Hundreds of millions spent on defenders, and still City were mauled by the Foxes as a Guardiola side were hit for five for the first time.

    Aymeric Laporte may be available to help put those wrongs right while new arrival from Benfica, Ruben Dias, could be thrown straight in for his debut.

    Up front, the visitors are still without Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus so it is likely to mean another start for Raheem Sterling as a makeshift striker.

    We’ll have confirmation of the two teams shortly with kick-off to follow at 5.30pm.
