Raheem Sterling’s goal goes in vain as Manchester City draw against Leeds United

Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw against Leeds United in an enthralling match at Elland Road on Saturday.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for the visitors before Rodrigo punished Ederson’s mistake from a corner to equalise.

City dominated the early stages of the game and deservedly took the lead after Sterling scored with a curling shot after 17 minutes.

Leeds fought back and almost levelled before the break but Ederson denied Luke Ayling.

Rodrigo was brought after half time and made it 1-1 after 57 minutes when Ederson’s failed punch landed at his feet to score.

The goalkeeper made up for the mistake with a brilliant save from Rodrigo moments later while Illan Meslier denied Sterling at the other end.
