Norwegian forward Erling Haaland has become the fastest player to reach 20 Premier League goals as Manchester City overcame a stubborn Leeds by three goals to one to reduce Arsenal’s lead at the top of the table to five points.

Frustrated by a disciplined and determined home side and their profligacy for much of the first half at Elland Road, City go the breakthrough before the break, through Rodri’s follow-up finish and then sped into the distance in a one-sided second half.

Haaland playing in the city of his birth against the side he supports -could not miss his first, set up in front of an open goal by Jack Grealish, who himself had missed a hat-trick of good opportunities in the first 45 minutes.

Grealish was the provider again for Haaland’s second, which he slotted in from close range following a deflection to give Leeds too much of a deficit to overcome despite getting a goal back through Pascal Struijk’s header from a corner.
