Leeds 1-3 Man City: Erling Haaland scores 20th league goal of season as champions get back to winning ways

A frustrating first half saw Jack Grealish miss a slew of chances until Rodri brought the deadlock in stoppage time. Grealish made amends after the break by scoring both goals for Haaland as City jumped past Newcastle to second place.

Back in his hometown, where his father played for Leeds, Norway international Haaland ended the game early in the second half with a simple strike, before taking his league tally to 20 for the season on 64 minutes. . .

Pascal Struijk gave the home supporters a slim hope of a comeback when he headed in with 17 minutes to go, but he was always going to be a consolation against City in this mood.

The win helped second-placed City move to within five points of Arsenal at the top of the table, while Leeds remained in 15th place, two points from the relegation zone.
