In Need Of A Win After Liverpool's Win At Newcastle United, Manchester City Respond By Beating Leeds United In Style

However, It Was Not Plain Sailing For Pep Guardiola's Side, Who Was Asked To Work His Way To Victory During An Entertaining Game.

Leeds was aggressive both in and out of the ball, and regularly tried to disrupt City's rhythm when out of possession

This Worked To Such An Extent That Goalkeeper Meslier Had Little To Do Until The Later Stages Of The Game, But It Meant That Leeds Made Several Set-pieces, And Was Duly Penalised.

Phil Foden Found His Boundary With The First Two Balls And Rodri Made A Fine Cross Home From The Left After 13 Minutes, With The Midfielder Receiving A Touch To Send The Ball Home.

Leeds Continued Their Approach For The Rest Of The First Half And, Clearly, City Found It Very Difficult To Deal With.

There Was A Break After The Face-off Between Laporte And Coach And At The End Of The First Half.                                                                                                    

While Leeds Fought Hard And Did A Good Job Of Eliminating City, They Offered To Move On, And Ederson Didn't Have Much Work To Do Until The Game Was Over.

High Tempo Leeds Played The Game For Their Visitors, But The Home Team Struggled To Decide And Choose Teammates With The Action Being Played At Such A Fast Pace.

City got their second, this time from a corner, as Ake diverted Dias' header into the net, and that already felt like it was probably the game
