Man City hit Leeds for seven to extend EPL lead
Dec 15, 2021
Man City put on an attacking masterclass, thrashing Leeds 7-0 to extend their lead at the top of the EPL table.
Kevin DeBruyne scored twice…with Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez, John Stones and Nathan Ake also finding the back of the net.
The win moves City four points clear of second-placed Liverpool, although the Reds have a game in hand.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa picked up their fourth win in six matches under Steven Gerrard, beating Norwich 2-0.
Mo Salah has been surprisingly left out of the 23-man shortlist for the FIFPro World Eleven.
The Liverpool striker has been in spectacular form for the Reds this season…and is widely-regarded as one of the best players in the world at the moment.
However, there was no place for him among the nominees…with the usual suspects like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski and Kevin DeBruyne among those in contention.
The award is voted for by footballers around the world, with the final eleven to be announced next month.
Olympians Pandelela Rinong and Datuk Azizulhasni Awang are among those in the running for the National Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year awards.
Some of the others also in contention include Farah Ann Abdul Hadi, bowler Sin Li Jane and archer Khairul Anuar Mohamad.
Meanwhile Paralympic champions Bonnie Bunyau Gustin and Cheah Liek Hou are among those in the running for the best Paralympic Sportsman.
