Manchester City retook the top spot in the Premier League from Liverpool after weathering a Leeds storm to win 4-0 at Elland Road on Saturday.
Rodri and Nathan Ake got the vital goals from set-pieces on a day City needed to match the aggression of the home side before Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho sealed victory late on.
Pep Guardiola’s men edge one point ahead of the Reds once more with four games remaining for both sides.
The defeat leaves Leeds looking over their shoulder at the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Norwich were relegated from the Premier League on Saturday after a 2-0 loss at Aston Villa.
Burnley’s dramatic late comeback from 1-0 down to beat Watford 2-1 left the Canaries 13 points adrift of safety with just four games remaining.
It was an unhappy return to Villa Park for Norwich boss Dean Smith as goals either side of half-time from two players he signed for Villa, Ollie Watkins, and Danny Ings earned Steven Gerrard’s men the three points.
Smith has been unable to turn around a sinking ship since replacing Daniel Farke in November.
“I’m disappointed for a lot of people — the owners, the supporters, and everyone to do with the football club,” Smith told reporters.
“I take part of the responsibility because I’ve come in here to try to keep us up and unfortunately, we haven’t done enough, but that isn’t down to the performance today (Saturday).
“Unfortunately, in a lot of the bigger games this season, we’ve not quite reached the levels that we need to,” he added.
The Canaries have gone down in each of their last three campaigns in the English top-flight, having also been relegated in 2015/16 and 2018/19.
