HT: MAN CITY 3-1 SOUTHAMPTON
Southampton started the brightest out of the two sides.
But it was one slip of concentration which lead to them going behind in the 14th minute.
Dias played a lovely ball picking out Zinchenko who was running in behind the Saints backline.
The left-back cut the ball back to Foden who saw his shot saved by McCarthy.
But De Bruyne came in and smashed the rebound off the underside of the crossbar and in.
The Saints picked away at City and ended up being awarded a penalty thanks to Laporte.
Ward-Prowse stepped up and smashed the ball straight down the middle.
Southampton were the masters of their own downfall once again, letting themselves down after just fighting back to get on level terms.
Adams gifted the ball to Mahrez and the winger cuts inside off the right flank onto his favoured left foot and fired past McCarthy.
And right before the half-time whistle, Gundogan got City’s third reacting quickest to Mahrez’s effort which crashed off the far post.
The goal right at the end will be a killer blow for the Saints who were competitive throughout the half, but now find themselves two goals behind.
