Manchester City repelled the upcoming attack on the top of the English Premier League by rivals Liverpool for the title. With a comfortable 4-0 (1-0) win at Leeds United on Saturday night, Pep Guardiola’s side reclaimed the “Reds” full back, who were briefly on top after their 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the afternoon. place and remain at the top of the table with five games remaining after this weekend. In Leeds, Rodrygo (13 minutes), Nathan Ake (54 minutes), Gabriel Jesus (78 minutes) and Fernandinho (90′ + 3′) scored the goals. So the championship battle continues to reach its climax: City are still just one point ahead of Liverpool.
City were also supposed to gain self-confidence in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final next Wednesday at Real Madrid, with the victory. Then Guardiola’s team have to defend their lead with one goal from the great first leg (4:3) at the Etihad Stadium.
With City rushing from victory to victory, the situation for Leeds United is becoming increasingly precarious. Former RB Leipzig boss Jesse Marsh’s side are currently in first place without relegation and are just five points ahead of 18th-placed Everton, who have played two games less.
