    Bielsa's Leeds make Premier League history with stoppage-time win over Man City

    Despite being down to 10 men for more than 45 minutes, the newly-promoted side earned an impressive 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

    Leeds visited Man City in Saturday's early Premier League kick off in what was a highly-anticipated game, and boy did it not disappoint! Fans were eager to see the Guardiola vs Bielsa rematch, with these two highly-revered tacticians playing out a 1-1 draw in their earlier encounter back in October.

    Form favored the Citizens, but much to the shock of everyone, it was the Peacocks that emerged triumphant, beating Pep's side 2-1 thanks to a Stuart Dallas brace. To make things more impressive, Leeds had to fight against the odds after being reduced to 10 men.

    It was the visitors that went in front first. Dallas netted in the 42nd minute but in added time, Bielsa's men received a huge blow. Liam Cooper was shown a straight red card for a knee-high tackle on Gabriel Jesus, with VAR intervening after the center-back was only booked for his poor challenge.

    From then on, Man City were in ascendance, dominating play and the chance creation, eventually finding the equalizer in the 76th minute. With 14 minutes remaining in normal time, everyone expected Sterling and Co. to go on to win the game.

    Unfortunately, Dallas had a different idea, scoring the winning goal for Leeds in stoppage time courtesy of an exquisite counter-attack. Check out the Northern Irishman's brilliant strike in the video below (geo-restrictions apply).

    This victory saw the newly-promoted side make Premier League history. Never before had an opposition team won an English top-flight fixture at the Etihad having played with 10 men for 45+ minutes until Bielsa's side came along.

    The fact that the visitors scored twice with their only two shots in the game, while Man City racked up 29 attempts throughout the 90 minutes, will only win Bielsa more plaudits. Thanks to the triumph, Leeds have moved ahead of Arsenal and are now level with Aston Villa in the table, albeit temporarily.
