Man. City defeats Leeds, top table

Manchester City are back at the top of the premier league table, in front of Liverpool, after a 4-0 win over relegation threatened Leeds United at Elland Road.

Liverpool which moved top temporarily after a lone goal victory over Newcastle earlier in the day, are now second on the table.

City took the lead on 13 minutes after Phil Foden sent a cross in from a free-kick and Rodri leapt high to connect with it on the edge of the 6-yard box. His close-range header went inside the right post.

The visitors doubled their lead on 54 minutes from a resulting corner and Nathan Ake buried the ball into the back of the net from a Ruben Dias knock down.

A superb work from Phil Foden on 78 minutes led to the third goal. He squared the ball to Gabriel Jesus, who beat Illan Meslier with a brilliant shot into the left side of the net.

Fernandinho made it 0-4 for City after the ball rebounded and arrived at his feet just outside the box. He fired a brilliant shot into the bottom left corner. His attempt was beyond the reach of Illan Meslier.

City boss Pep Guardiola made five changes after his side’s midweek Champions League win against Real Madrid, but it made little difference as they marched on in defence of their domestic crown.

They however secured a third straight league win for the first time in 2022, but it was not the walk in the park the scoreline would suggest against an embattled Leeds side hungry for points in their fight to beat the drop.
