Under Jesse Marsch's guidance, Leeds has pulled off a five-game winning streak. Three of those games were victories and two were draws, with wins over Norwich (2-1), Watford (3-0) and Wolverhampton (3-2) and draws with Southampton (1-1) and Crystal Palace (0-0). Marsch has yet to play a game against a top team. This will be the first serious test for the American specialist in the EPL. Thanks to this successful streak, Leeds are five points clear of the relegation zone.
Man City retains first place in the standings, with Liverpool breathing down their necks. There's one point difference between them. One mistake and the title race could be over. And despite such pressure from Liverpool, City are doing very well. They're taking points where they should be taking points. So Man City have had no resistance from Brighton (3-0) and Watford (5-1). And this week, they barely held on to beat Real Madrid (4-3). Let's see what happens in the return game at the Santiago Bernabeu.
