Diego Llorente admitted he was shocked to see Stuart Dallas find the energy to run and score the winning goal for Leeds United against Manchester City on Saturday.
Leeds had just 29% possession and were forced to steadfastly defend much of their Premier League game at the Etihad stadium after Liam Cooper’s red card at the end of the first half.

Dallas ‘first-half strike was canceled out by Ferran Torres’ aptly taken 76th-minute finish and City pushed hard for a winner.

However, it was Leeds who found it, as Dallas ran on Gianni Alioski’s deep ball to place his shot through Ederson’s legs in added time.

The midfielder’s goal secured the Whites a third consecutive 2-1 victory and ensured that they became just the fourth promoted team to win against the Premier League leaders in history. the competition.

“I couldn’t believe it because the whole team was very tired,” Llorente Told LUTV.

“I don’t know where he got the energy from, but he got the goal so I’m very, very happy for him and for the whole team.”

The goal saw Dallas move to seven Premier League strikes for the season and highlight his great improvement under Marcelo Bielsa this season.

The Northern Irishman has been superb across a range of positions in the top flight and has embodied Bielsa’s game plan.

Leeds were applauded for their high intensity man-to-man system which provided plenty of entertainment, but different characteristics were what earned points against Man City.

The Whites had to be disciplined and organized in defense after Cooper’s red card for a reckless challenge on Gabriel Jesus, with Pascal Struijk and Robin Koch coming off the bench to help Llorente.

“The plan was not to suffer too much, to try to get the ball back in their half of the field, but we knew it was going to be difficult,” said Llorente.

” It was very difficult. His [Pep Guardiola’s] the team is very good, they have players with quick, quick movements, so we tried to stop them and it was important to get the victory.

Llorente’s own performance was cause for celebration, limiting the city’s attack to one goal.

Since returning to the first-team setup seven games ago, Llorente has started in each of the following games, with Leeds conceding just six goals in the same streak.
