Stuart Dallas ‘brilliant brace gave 10 Leeds’ men a sensational 2-1 victory over Premier League champions elected at Manchester City on Saturday.
Dallas gave the visitors a first-half lead at the Etihad, but moments later White skipper Liam Cooper received his marching orders for a thoughtless challenge on Gabriel Jesus.
City pressed for an equalizer after the break and it finally came 15 minutes from the time Bernardo Silva sent the ball into the path of Ferran Torres who cut the ball past Illan Meslier.
But Northern Ireland international Dallas struck deep into the stoppage time as Marcelo Bielsa’s men got three shining points.
Of the win, Dallas told BT Sport, “It’s a great result for us. It was tough there, it’s tough enough against any 11-man team, let alone Man City with 10.
“We came here with a game plan that we always go anywhere with and when you get down to 10 men that has to change a bit.

“We dug, we showed a team different from us that we are able to defend when we need to – it was criticized throughout the season and I thought defensively we stood up.
“You should never give up, no matter which team you’re playing with, but at 10 men they equalize and everyone probably thinks we’re going to give in, but we managed to come up with something.
“It’s about knowing how badly you really want it and giving that little extra when it’s needed.”
