A world class performance by the Citizens was every bit to much for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as a pretty much changed 11 saw Kevin Dr Bruyne , Foden and Mahrez come back to the side against a shaky Leeds side despite a better performance versus European champions Chelsea as most would argue they deserved a point at least.
Things didn’t however get off to a good start as the incompetences of one man marking were quite clear as Bernardo Silva missed s sitter but that later seemed to be ages as moments later the Leeds defense was in shambles as Phil Foden go on the goal sheet. Four minutes later Jack Grealish was at the end of a sublime cross to double the scores.
The title holders were not done as they could have easily extended their lead with attempts slowly ramping up for the hosts compared to non by the visitors. A third was inevitable in the end with Kevin de Bruyne slotted it past Meslier as the visitors were relieved not to concede more as the half time whistle was blown.
The Citizens looked to continue with the same momentum as the show must always go on. An it sure did with a deflected Mahrez strike managed to find the bottom corner. Leeds on the other hand almost completed a glorious move only for Stuart Dallas’ strike to beat the post. Leeds would go on to rue that after Phil Foden scored only for it to be disallowed moments later . The sigh was momentarily lived as a thunderous strike by KDB made it five.
The centre halfs also had time to join in on the action with John Stones and Nathan Ake saw the also get on the score sheet in quick succession. With things seeming to get worse and more embarrassing, Mercelo Bielsa’s men now were about damage limitation with this demoralizing match being their worst defeat in the premier league era. This sending shock waves throughout the league to the other two main title contenders about their title charge.
