Man City defeat Leeds 2-1 to top Arsenal four points clear

Ilkay Gundogan goal

Hard-charging Ilkay Gundogan scored twice in as many minutes to help Manchester City defeat Leeds United 2-1 on Saturday, moving them four points ahead of Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.

This victory extended their winning streak in the league to ten games.

Erling Haaland, a star striker for City, gladly gave the ball to Gundogan in the 84th minute so that he could take a penalty kick for what would have been a hat trick, but Leeds goalkeeper Joel Robles easily stopped his effort.

Before Gundogan’s goal in the 19th minute from the edge of the 18-yard box off a feed from Riyad Mahrez, City had run circles around Leeds with multiple quality scoring chances.

Eight minutes later, Mahrez set up Gundogan once more for a goal that was an exact replica of his first.

For Leeds, Rodrigo Moreno restored parity in the 85th minute.

Pep Guardiola’s team leads Arsenal with 82 points with four games remaining, and if the Gunners lose to Newcastle on Sunday, City will have all but guaranteed an illustrious third straight championship.

Leeds are in a precarious position in 17th place, and all three teams behind them have a game in hand.

This is the team’s first game under temporary manager Sam Allardyce, who was parachuted in as a last-ditch effort to avoid relegation.
