    77. Two further substitutions.

    Bielsa makes his final change by sending on Leif Davis for Klich while Fernandinho replaces Mahrez.

    Everyone would want to be involved in this encounter.

    74. Two tactical geniuses?

    “Tactics have gone out of the window,” laughs Gary Neville. “It's Rocky versus Apollo Creed.”

    Leeds land the latest punch on their opponents as Bamford steers in a shot at the near post, but it's saved by Ederson.

    72. Now City pass up a huge opportunity!

    Sterling gets the better of Koch to bear down on goal but rather than shooting when one-on-one with Meslier, he cuts back inside and allows the Leeds keeper to smother the chance.

    71. Another change for City sees Nathan Ake on for Mendy.

    The recent arrival from Bournemouth is more comfortable in the middle of defence, but has played left-back throughout his career.

    70. The woodwork saves City again!!

    Ederson makes amends for his error by tipping Rodrigo's header onto the crossbar.

    This is frantic, thrilling stuff.

    68. It's all action at Elland Road.

    From a set-piece, Leeds hit the frame of the goal again, this time through Liam Cooper – but the flag is up for offside.

    RODRIGO TO THE RESCUE

    64. Phillips has a go from 25 yards, but this time Ederson manages to get two hands on the ball – and keep them on it.

    Seconds later, De Bruyne darts in from the left at the other end, and blasts a low shot wide of the far post.

    62. City look to take charge again as their captain, Kevin De Bruyne, attempts to wrestle free of two defenders in the box.

    The hosts stand their ground and the best the Belgian can manage is a corner.

    59. On for just a couple of minutes, Rodrigo has hit the woodwork and now he's equalised!

    It's a poor mistake from Edersen, who punches the corner into the back of Benjamin Mendy.

    But it's pure instinct from Rodrigo, who turns smartly to knock the loose ball into the empty net.

    What an introduction from the substitute!

    56. Leeds' big-money signing Rodrigo is on for Tyler Roberts.

    Meanwhile, the heavy rain is starting to have an affect on the pitch with short passes behind held up.

    These conditions are primed for a calamitous defensive error.

    55. Bamford sprints into the City penalty area…

    ….but forgets to take the ball with him.

    52. Poveda is in the action again following a fine run from Dallas.

    The ball is then switched from left to right, where the substitute feeds the overlapping Ayling.

    Leeds' forwards demand a good delivery, but the right-back sends his disappointing cross behind.

    50. Leeds are trying to up the tempo at the start of the second half.

    The message to Poveda on the right is clear: get on the ball and be direct.

    47. Bielsa is back to squatting on the touchline.

    I've no idea how he manages it for so long. I tried it while looking for a wok in the back of the kitchen cupboard earlier and had to give up after about 45 seconds.

    46. Leeds make one change as they begin the second half.

    Ian Poveda, the England U20 winger signed from Manchester City in January, is on for Alioski.

    The substitute makes an immediate impression, attacking Mendy down the right, and wins a corner when his low cross is turned behind.

    PEEEEEEP!

    MIKE DEAN'S WHISTLE STARTS THE SECOND HALF!

    LEEDS RUE BIG CHANCES

    City have racked up a huge number of attempts in that first half, but the best opportunities have come at the other end of the pitch.

    THE DIFFERENCE

    STERLING ON THE MONEY

    Raheem opens the scoring with a fine individual effot.

    Raheem Sterling's goal separates the sides.

    Had they taken their chances, City could have had this game won within the opening 25 minutes.

    As it is, they can count themselves fortunate to be ahead at the break.

    It's all to play for in the second half.
