Man City reclaim top spot with four games left

Agencies

Manchester City produced the perfect response to Premier League title rivals Liverpool by outclassing Leeds United 4-0 to regain top spot.

According to the British media, City needed the win after Liverpool had overtaken them earlier in the day with victory at New Castle and they produced a highly impressive display on Saturday.

The reigning Premier League champions went ahead in the 13th minute when Rodri glanced home Phil Foden’s free-kick, the BBC reported. According to the news agency, while Leeds were spirited they barely tested visiting keeper Ederson until the game was lost.

City doubled their advantage nine minutes after the break from another set-piece, Nathan Ake pouncing from close range when Foden’s corner was headed down by Ruben Dias.

Foden was City’s brilliant orchestrator and he was involved again when he set up the third for Gabriel Jesus with 12 minutes left, before Fernadinho added the fourth with virtually the last kick of the game.

The win means City are a point ahead of Liverpool, with four games left for both teams.
