Leeds are in town, and they look a little makeshift, which just makes it even more imperative to get back on the winning track. City are currently
being held 0-0 by beating 10-man Wolves, 1-0, but regardless of that result (which is likely to be a City win in the end still), we must win to ensure we at least keep pace.
With almost a week before our next match, there’s no reason not give full effort and not to go full strength. Tuchel held up that end of the deal; now it’s time to deliver.
Here we go!
