Manchester City fell to a shock 1-2 defeat to 10-man Leeds United at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Stuart Dallas scored twice, the winner coming in injury time, to help Marcelo Bielsa’s team claim all three points in spite of Liam Cooper’s sending off on the stroke of half time after a VAR review for a challenge on Gabriel Jesus

Pep Guardiola’s side had fallen behind on the 42nd minute with Patrick Bamford setting up Dallas’s first of the afternoon.

However, the Citizens pulled an equaliser 14 minutes from time through Ferran Torres, heightening the hopes of the home team that needs just 11 points to lift the league title.

If dominant Manchester City dreamt of drawing or even winning the game, their hope was dashed in the 91st minute when Dallas struck again after an impressive counterattack.

Despite the loss, Manchester City maintain top spot with 74 points after 32 games, 14 points above second-placed Manchester United who have two games in hand.

Leeds United are 10th on the log with 45 points after 31 games, three points above Arsenal in 11th place.
