Manchester City resumed their push for the top of the table with a 3-1 victory over Leeds United on Wednesday at Ellan road.

A goal from Rodri and Erling Haaland’s brace secured three vital Premier League points to keep City in touch with  Arsenal at the top of the table.

It was more of a personal reflection for Haaland who was born in Leeds in 2000 when his father Alfe-Inge was playing for the team.

While his double means he becomes the quickest player to reach 20 Premier League goals having done so in just 14 games, his display again indicates that he has left the injury worry out of his way.

Speaking after the game, the Norwegian said it’s a special moment for him to have scored in his city of birth and even do it in the presence of his parents.

“With my father and mother here today, it’s special. I have to say it’s special.

“It’s a really special moment in my career. It’s really weird, it’s in my craziest fantasy, to score for City against Leeds.” He said

City face Everton at the Etihad on New Year’s Eve in another vital Premier League encounter.
