Premier League: Man City Destroy Leeds 7-0, Stretch Lead Over Title Rivals

A scintillating display from Manchester City  condemned Leeds to their heaviest ever defeat in the Premier League,  after they were hammered 7-0 at the Etihad in Tuesday’s Premier League game.

The win means City now on 41 points are four and five points ahead of title rivals Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.

City broke the deadlock in the 8th minute after the ball rebounded off Leeds keeper Illan Meslier to Phil Foden who slotted home.

Just five minutes after the opener, City went 2-0 ahead. After sustained pressure following a corner, Jack Grealish headed in a Riyad Mahrez cross.

In the 32nd minute City got their third as a controlled City passing move was expertly finished by Kevin De Bruyne.

Mahrez made it 4-0 on 49 minutes after cutting in on his left foot and slide the ball into the bottom corner.

Pep Guardiola’s men continued to pile in the pressure and were rewarded on 62 minutes off a stunner from Kevin De Bruyne who picked up the ball on the edge of the box and volleyed it into the top corner.

With 16 minutes remaining City got their sixth thanks to John Stones who pounced on a rebound despite a strong double save from Meslier.

And in the 78th minute Nathan Ake rounded up the goal feast as he climbed highest to a Foden corner to make it seven for City.

And at Carrow Road  Steven Gerrard continued his impressive job at Aston Villa who beat Norwich City 2-0.

The win took Villa to ninth place on 22 points in the league standing.
