Leeds United 1, Rodrigo Moreno (59’)

Welcome to your quick recap.

Manchester City have been held by a very game Leeds United and Marcelo Bielsa.

A challenging game. Very wet conditions, played at high speed, against a side in decent form.

Surely, Pep will be disappointed on the dropped points, especially after the first 15 minutes, where Manchester City were superb and in total control.

The story of the night was City’s well drilled and professional side, Pep Guardiola put out. A great first fifteen led to a great first half. That’s where it ended though, as a sloppy second half did City in.

In the end, missed chances and a really fun and up to task Leeds side made for an OK night for City. Still, a draw away from home is nothing to sneeze at. Keep in mind this first month will essentially be pre season for Man City.
