How It Happened Leeds vs Man City
Manchester City put up a great show tonight ti be frank they rarely disappoint but tonight was one of those nights that luck just didn't turn in their favor.
Sterling has broken the deadlock in 17th minute from his favorite position.
The rest of the first half was played by the City rules but halftime break has shifted the fortunes.
Rodrigo Moreno has scored his first goal for Leeds after he became the most expensive player that Leeds has ever signed. Rodrigo was creative throughout the game, showed commitment and intelligence, his passing and vision were excellent and caused a lot of problems for Man City's defensive line.
However, Rodrigo's goal was no beauty but rather a sheer luck. Rodrigo took advantage of Ederson's mistake after a poor ball punch from the corner kick that bounced of Man City player and Rodrigo just couldn't miss from 2 yards away.
The rest of the 2nd half was a rollercoaster ride for both teams. Leeds had plenty opportunity to turn the game around and secure 3 points. They got fairly close with several crossbar hits.
Man City counterattacks and pressing raised the blood pressure of more than just one Leeds fan but at the end of the day, neither team could capitalize on the opportunities.
In my opinion, the biggest surprise are the game stats. Who would guess that Leeds will have more shots on goal than the infamous Manchester City, or what about the ball possession?
Leeds mean business and if they continue play this way they surely are on a path to reclaim their place in Premier League.
