Man City suffered only their 4th loss of the season in today's shock 1-2 home defeat to Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United, who had to endure the entirety of the second half with only ten men. City's last defeat was 0-2 at home to Manchester United in March, which ended their record breaking 21-game winning streak.
In Saturday's fixture, Leeds' Stuart Dallas opened the scoring in the 42nd minute with a fine strike in off the post. Then, barely three minutes later, there came a moment of madness from defender Lee Cooper, who was sent off for chopping down City forward Gabriel Jesus.
From the start of the second half, Leeds' backs were against the wall, with City constantly looking for an equaliser. They had to wait a while to get it though. Leeds' resolute defending kept City's star-studded attack at bay until the 76th minute, where substitute Ferran Torres converted Bernardo Silva's fine cross.
There was always the feeling that Bielsa's men were still in the game, however, and sure enough that moment came with just minutes to spare. That man again Stuard Dallas ran through on goal followng a Leeds counter, slotting cooly past Ederson in the 91st minute.
This shock result doesn't change much for City who stay top, whilst leeds overtake Arsenal to secure 10th spot.
