Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Manchester City could line up against Leeds United on Saturday.

Manchester City will be looking to make it seven straight wins in all competitions when they welcome Leeds United to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Citizens, who are 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, will again have a fully-fit squad for this weekend's contest against Marcelo Bielsa's side.

Head coach Pep Guardiola recently reiterated the importance of rotating his squad, and there will be a number of changes from the side that started Tuesday's 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy could both come into the back four, while there might be a position in the middle of the midfield for Fernandinho, with Rodri dropping to the bench.

Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez might also all drop out of the starting team, with Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus potentially featuring in the XI.

Bernardo Silva could move back to a midfield position, with Guardiola likely to have one eye on next week's Champions League clash with Dortmund and the upcoming FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea.

Gabriel Jesus was on the scoresheet in Man City's 2-0 win over Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend, and the Brazilian could again operate out wide with Aguero going through the middle.

Man City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Mendy; B Silva, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Sterling, Aguero, Jesus
