English Premier League

Manchester City comes from behind to salvage draw vs Southampton

by: Evolve


Southampton and Manchester City were forced to share the spoils of a 1-1 draw at St. Mary’s after a thrilling 90 minutes of football.

The Saints scored first with a beautiful outside-the-boot finish from Walker-Peters, giving them a lead that they would hold for just under an hour.

On 67 minutes, Forster’s clean sheet was destroyed by a headed effort from Laporte due to De Bruyne’s inch-perfect delivery, and City dictated play and time of possession, launching wave after wave of pressure forward.

Guardiola’s team was not satisfied with a point and kept pressing for the winner, but the Southampton defense’s tenacity saved them from a late defeat.

Manchester City now leads the Premier League by 12 points, while Southampton remains in 12th place.

Southampton returns to FA Cup action on February 5 when they face Coventry City.

Manchester City will host Fulham at the Etihad Stadium on the same day in the same competition.
