leeds 1 1 manchester city rodrigo capitalises on edersons horror mistake to earn hosts a point

Manchester City were forced into a share of the spoils with Leeds after the hosts fought back superbly in a pulsating encounter at Elland Road. 

Raheem Sterling fired City into the lead in superb fashion on 17 minutes, with the forward drifting along the edge of the penalty area and rifling a low effort across Illan Meslier.

The visitor’s stopper, Ederson, responded superbly to Leeds’ forays forward after falling behind – but was unquestionably at fault for the leveller.

Kalvin Phillips’ corner looked set to be fielded comfortably by Ederson, only for him to allow the greasy ball to squirm loose from his grip. Rodrigo was positioned perfectly to capitalise by slotting into the unguarded net.

‘NUMBERS DON’T LIE’

Jon Jones has rejected Khabib Nurmagomedov’s claim he is the best pound-for-pound fighter.

The UFC lightweight champion stretched his unbeaten record as a pro to 29-0 in MMA on Saturday night with victory over Justin Gaethje.

Many felt it was ‘The Eagle’s’ biggest test yet as he took on the American at UFC 254 on Fight Island.

But the Dagestani fighter left everyone in no doubt who the top dog was as he needed less than ten minutes to see off the man dubbed ‘The Highlight’.

Khabib, 32, shocked everybody afterwards by announcing his retirement from MMA.

That is despite him being linked with mega-money matches against old foe Conor McGregor or his hero Georges St. Pierre.

Inside the octagon after his latest win, he said: “There is only one thing I want from UFC, to put me as No.1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world because I deserve it

However, the current P4P king Jones quickly refuted Khabib’s request.

Writing on Twitter, he wrote: “Until I take that heavily crown, I grant you the spot. Enjoy Champ.”

He then tweeted: “15 world titles, numbers don’t lie.”

‘Bones’ then wrote: “I want to congratulate Khabib for an outstanding career.

“I know he made his father along with millions of fans around the world incredibly proud today.

“May God continue to bless him on his journey.”

The American then added: “Definitely a powerful moment, but my logic is definitely not clouded.”

However, the Dagestani star surprised everyone afterwards by declaring his days in the cage had ended as laid his gloves on the canvas.

The 32-year-old said: “I talked with my mother for three days. I promised her it was my last fight and if I give my word – I have to follow this. It was my last fight here.”

The star, who has been linked with a rematch against against Conor Mcgregor and a dream fight with Georges St. Pierre, added:  I know only one thing I want from UFC… No.1 undisputed pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

“I know I deserve it. !3-0 in UFC, 29-0 in my pro career.”

The lightweight king reigned supreme against Gaethje, three months after dad Abdulmanap passed away aged 57 due to coronavirus.

The first minute of the opening round proved cagey, as Nurmagomedov sized up a way to takedown Gaethje.

Interim champion Gaethje grazed the chin of Khabib early with a lethal right hand, as he eluded the grappling exchanges.

Nurmagomedov’s pressure was constant, as he closed the distance down with a jab, but was threatened with constant hooks from the challenger.

After Russian Khabib missed with a flying knee, Gaethje landed a massive uppercut and hook combination, which the champion walked right through.

Afterwards, Nurmagomedov was finally able to land a takedown and looked to lock in a choke.

Gaethje was able to survive the round, which belong to Khabib.

The start of the second opened with Gaethje landing a leg kick, but Nurmagomedov did not wilt.

He managed to get a hold of Gaethje, forcing him on to the floor and took his back before moving into full mount.

There, he swiftly locked in a triangle choke, leaving his opponent little chance of escaping.
