Saints Stun City

Manchester City's hopes of getting back into the title race suffered a major blow as they went down 3-1 away to Southampton on Saturday night.

The Saints continued their lively form and took just seven minutes to take the lead through Jason Puncheon. Steven Davis then doubled their tally before Edin Dzeko pulled a goal back.

A shocking own goal from Gareth Barry after the break would confirm the result though and City could find themselves 12 points behind leaders Manchester United by the end of the weekend.

The hosts got off to the perfect start when Puncheon's cross found Jay Rodriguez but his strike was blocked and the rebound fell to Puncheon who slid his finish home.

The defending Premier League champions would concede again in the 22nd minute as Rickie Lambert cut inside before firing at Joe Hart who fumbled the ball through his legs and Davis came in to finish from close range.

City would restore some hope before the break though when Pablo Zabaleta broke down the flank and picked out Dzeko who dinked the ball home.

Rodriguez had a penalty shout at the other end just before the break after Yaya Toure leaned into him but the referee waved play on.

The Saints would get a third in strange fashion after the break though as Barry passed a Lambert cross straight into the back of his own net.

City struggled to get things going in attack as Southampton closed out the game to take a massive three points.
