Manchester City 1-2 Leeds: Stuart Dallas scores twice as Marcelo Bielsa’s team fights back with 10 men.

Manchester City 1-2 Leeds: Stuart Dallas scores twice as Marcelo Bielsa’s team fights back with 10 men.

Report and highlights as Stuart Dallas scores with both of Leeds’ shots on goal, including the winner in injury time; Liam Cooper had been sent off at the Etihad just before the break after a VAR review for a challenge on Gabriel Jesus

Leeds United pulled off a remarkable 2-1 win away to champions-elect Man City with Stuart Dallas at the double, despite playing with 10 men for 45 minutes.

Pep Guardiola’s men needed just 11 more points to secure the Premier League title but were met by a resilient Leeds side, who took the lead at the Etihad Stadium when Dallas found a way through (42).

The game swung in City’s favour just before the break when Liam Cooper was dismissed for an ugly lunge on Gabriel Jesus which was upgraded from a yellow card to a red after VAR had instructed Andre Marriner to review the decision on the pitchside monitor.

City set up camp in the Leeds half with the extra man but Marcelo Bielsa’s men were dogged in their defending and it took until 14 minutes from time to level it up when Ferran Torres struck.

The game only looked like going one way from that moment but Leeds continued to dig in and sensationally staged a devastating counter-attack which was finished off by the tireless Dallas (90+1) as Leeds managed to win despite having just two shots on goal to City’s 29.

Man of the match:Stuart Dallas

How Bielsa took down Pep…

City, having made seven changes following their midweek Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund, failed to play with their usual spark in the early stages.

Leeds sat in and looked to hit down City’s left with Benjamin Mendy and Nathan Ake targeted as a potential weakness. Their best opening saw Tyler Roberts break into the box on the right but his ball across goal was too far behind Patrick Bamford.
