Extended highlights: Man City 2 Leeds United 1

Manchester City secured a 2-1 victory over Leeds and extended their lead at the top of the table to four points, putting them in a strong position to retain their Premier League title.

Ilkay Gundogan scored twice in the first half, but missed a penalty, while Rodrigo scored for Leeds late in the game to make for a tense finish.

Pep Guardiola was unhappy with Erling Haaland for not taking the penalty, as the striker had a poor day and missed several other chances.

City’s superior goal difference means they need only eight points from their remaining four games to win the title.

Meanwhile, Sam Allardyce’s return to management did not improve Leeds’ fortunes, and they remain in the relegation zone only on goal difference.

City made several changes to the team, including resting key players such as John Stones and Kevin De Bruyne, with one eye on their upcoming Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.

Haaland missed several opportunities to score, despite setting a new Premier League record for goals in a single season against West Ham earlier in the week.
