Leeds United 0-4 Man City: The Cityzens reclaim top spot

Manchester regained the top spot with a 4-0 victory over Leeds United in the English Premier League match held on Island Road.

City took the lead through unpopular top scorer Rudy in the 13th minute. There was a brilliant free kick from Foden on the left and Leeds almost stood up and admired it as they let Roder all the time in the world to nod City ahead.

Nathan Ake made it 2-0 in the second half and Leeds fell behind with a fiercer defense from a free kick. Dias won Foden’s wing on the back post and nodded for a touch. Ake got his body around the stationary Struijk and strapped it inside the near six-yard column.

In the 78th minute, Gabriel Jesus added the third goal, and City started winning. It was a great goal as they played from behind and passed the ball forward to Foden, who put Jesus in the net with a fine pass. The Brazilian then quietly sent his sixth goal in three matches.

Fernandinho made his way four nets for visitors. The ball fell to him on the edge of the penalty area after an attack from Sterling and he shot it straight into the bottom corner, and his effort was too strong for Mesler, who helped him in that. The result may have been a bit harsh for Leeds, but City are celebrating a big win.

City leads with 83 points, one point behind second-placed Liverpool, who beat Newcastle 1-0 earlier in the day.
