Man City Leave It Late To Sink Southampton

English Premier League

Result: Manchester City 2-1 Southampton

Date: 29 November 2017

Venue: Etihad

Manchester City recorded their 12th straight victory in the Premier League after defeating Southampton 2-1 thanks to a late winner from Raheem Sterling.

Pep Guardiola's troops were unsurprisingly dominating possession in the early stages of the match with Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph standing out.

The Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster was responsible for the score being 0-0 after 20 minutes producing saves to deny Fernandinho and Sterling the opening goal in quick succession.

Kevin De Brune was instrumental after half-an-hour but could not create a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Mauricio Pellegrino's charges got into the game after 35 minutes threatening to score on set pieces with Maya Yoshida coming close to grabbing the lead.

City asserted themselves yet again towards the first half break but could not penetrate the defence and the first stanza ended goalless.

Pep Guardiola's charges got the breakthrough goal two minutes into the second half from a free-kick that was turned home by Saints' Virgil Van Dijk for the own goal, 1-0.

De Bruyne almost doubled City's lead after turning brilliantly inside the box four minutes before the hour unleashing a rocket shot that was saved by Forster.

City were pressurising the visitors after 70 minutes with Sergio Aguero coming close to doubling the lead with a bullet header from a corner but missed the target.

Oriol Romeu levelled matters for the Saints in the 75th minute with a close range finish after a well-worked move.

The hosts were moving the ball around with five minutes left on the clock trying to find openings to score the winner.

However, Sterling sensationally scored the winning goal with a curling shot from the edge of the box that found the top corner deep into stoppage time to seal three points for the Citizens.

Other results:

Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick to lead Everton to a 4-0 win over West Ham United at Goodison Park. Ashley Williams bagged the fourth goal for the Toffees.

Elsewhere, Burnley Move up to sixth spot after claiming a 2-1 win over away to Bournemouth.
