Erling Haaland scored his 20th Premier League of the season as Manchester City beat Leeds to get back to winning ways.

A frustrating first half saw Jack Grealish miss a host of chances until Rodri brought the deadlock in injury time. Grealish made amends after the break by laying on both goals for Haaland as City jumped back above Newcastle into second place.

Back in the city of his birth, where his father was a player for Leeds, Norway international Haaland effectively put the game to bed early in the second half with a simple finish, before taking his league tally to 20 for the season in the 64th minute.

Pascal Struijk gave home supporters faint hope of a comeback as he headed home with 17 minutes left, but it was always going to be a consolation against City in this mood.

The victory helped second-placed City move back to within five points Arsenal at the top of the standings, while Leeds stay 15th, two points clear of the relegation zone.
