Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was left fuming at his star striker Erling Haaland after he conceded penalty duty to Ilkay Gundogan against Leeds.
”The moment Erling grabbed the ball, I was sure he was going to take it but he looked out for me. I checked with him a few times to make sure he was sure. He was certain to hand the ball to me,” said Gundogan after the match.
The Catalan’s blood pressure will have risen even higher when Rodrigo snatched a late goal for the visitors barely a minute later, as City’s seemingly complete control looked at risk of evaporating.
But Guardiola’s side held on for a vital three points, putting them four points clear at the Premier League summit and handing Sam Allardyce a painful defeat in his first match as Leeds boss.
