Stuart Dallas scores well taken goal late before Liam Cooper sent off for reckless tackle on Gabriel Jesus Ferran Torres scores equaliser but Dallas pounces for second as City push for a winner A stunning and deserved victory by the ten men of Leeds United will have no lasting impact on Manchester City’s march towards the Premier League title but the manner of his fourth defeat of the campaign will leave Pep Guardiola with plenty of food for thought as he targets even greater prizes. Two goals from Stuart Dallas, the winner in the 91st minute, saw Leeds join a list that now also features Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United as the only teams to have inflicted defeat on City in their 49 games this campaign. But, brilliant as Leeds were, this defeat was also, at least in part, self-inflicted as Guardiola made sweeping changes ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final visit to Borussia Dortmund.

Marcus Rashford scores excellent goal in the first half Bruno Fernandes fortunate to score late penalty as goalkeeper dives correct way B runo Fernandes’ last-minute penalty was scored with just one eye open and helped Manchester United put one foot in the semi-finals of the Europa League. Marcus Rashford had earlier scored a crucial away goal at Estadio Municipal Nuevo Los Cármenes but the tie was still in the balance, particularly with Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay picking up bookings to rule them out of next week’s second leg.

Nearly 200 people - including foreign workers - took refuge in one of the town's hotels. But survivors have told Sky News how they fled for their lives because they felt they'd been abandoned and no one was coming to rescue them. One South African contractor spoke of almost constant shooting and shelling during the three days they were trapped inside the Amarula Lodge in Palma.
