Manchester City withstood the pressure and got a valuable 3-1 win at Leeds United, this Wednesday at the close of matchday 17 of the Premier League, allowing Josep Guardiola’s team to remain in second place.

The Spanish Rodri Hernández opened the path of victory for the ‘Citizens’ on the brink of rest (45+1), red and black on this occasion due to the diagonal striped kit used, and the Norwegian Erling Haaland then sentenced with a ‘double’ (51, 64).

In minute 73, Leeds, fifteenth in the standings, cut short through the Dutchman Pascal Struijk, but could not advance further towards the comeback.

Haaland was the protagonist of the night on his return to Leedsthe city where he was born in the year 2000, when his father Alfie played for that club.

City has 35 points and is ahead of Newcastle in the table (now third, with 33), who had won 3-0 at Leicester on Monday and had provisionally moved them from second place in the standings.

But above all, Manchester City, defending champion, manages not to let Arsenal escape any more (leader with 40 points), who had beaten West Ham 3-1 on Monday and had distanced themselves in the table. The result of this Wednesday once again leaves the difference between the two at five points in favor of the Londoners.

In the Premier League scorer table, Haaland already has 20 goals in his first season in the English league, widening his distance from his closest rival, Harry Kane, who has been thirteen after scoring a goal for Tottenham on Monday in their 2-2 draw at Brentford.

City had gone on a World Cup break with a worrying defeat at home to Brentford, but after Qatar 2022 he seems to be getting reassuring results. Before this victory, last Thursday they had beaten Liverpool 3-2 in the round of 16 of the English League Cup.

Both Manchester City and Leeds have another league game in the remainder of 2022, the one they will play on Saturday, December 31, against Everton and Newcastle, respectively.
