The superior league leaders have to admit defeat at home to Leeds United, who played only ten for more than one half.
Manchester City made a mistake on the way to the English Premier League title. The superior league leaders lost 2-1 at home to Leeds United on Saturday, although the guests only played ten for more than half after a red card from Liam Cooper (45th + 1). Northern Irishman Stuart Dallas (42nd, 91st) scored twice late in the game, Ferran Torres had equalized in the 76th minute.
Leeds captain Cooper had brought Gabriel Jesus down with an excessively harsh attack, after the intervention of the video assistant, the Scot was excluded. After that, City was superior in the field, but had no compelling options. Dallas, who had initially hit from just outside the penalty area via the inside pole, made the decision in stoppage time from a running duel.

In the duel between coaches Marcelo Bielsa and Pep Guardiola, it was the first victory for the Argentine Bielsa – both are considered admirers of the other.
The loss of points can not add tension to the championship race. City are now 14 points ahead of first runner-up Manchester United, who have played two games less.
