Ten-man Leeds United held off sustained pressure from Manchester City to snatch a famous 2-1 win at the Etihad on Saturday.
Stuart Dallas scored late in the first half but Leeds’ celebrations were cut short when Liam Cooper was sent off minutes later. Ferran Torres’ late strike seemed to rescue a point for City before Dallas scored a second in added time.
“It is a great result for us. It was tough out there. It is hard enough with 11, never mind 10,” Dallas said after the game.
“We defended really well and kept them to very few good chances. We knew if we could have a bit more composure we could get one chance.
“You should never give up. Down to 10 and they equalise. But we managed to find something. It is about how much you really want it.”
Pep Guardiola fielded a much-changed side which saw Kevin De Bruyne on the bench and Sergio Aguero not in the squad.
City had enjoyed much of the possession before Dallas’ shot ricocheted off the post and into the net on 42 minutes to give Leeds an unlikely lead.
