After Liverpool’s insane 0: 7 win over Crystal Palace earlier today (Saturday), the 14th round of the Premier League continued tonight with Manchester City, returning to the winning track after a tough 0: 1 over Southampton. Later on, Arsenal will face Everton at Goodison Park (Starting at 19:20, live broadcast on Sports2) And Newcastle will meet Fulham (Starting at 21:50, live broadcast on Sport2).
Southampton – Manchester City 1: 0
After finishing in a draw in the last two rounds (0: 0 against Manchester United and 1: 1 against West Bromwich Albion), Pep Guardiola’s team, which is suffering from instability this season, is back to winning. Now, the Blues have temporarily moved up to fifth place and are eight points away from Liverpool at the top – a gap that they could shrink even further as the Citizens lack a game in relation to the champion.
Southampton, on the other hand, remain in fourth place, but could lose it until the rest of the cycle is completed. The Saints made it very difficult for Manchester City, and it can be said that the game was quite equal, and Guardiola’s trainees did not impress again. The winner of the match was Raheem Sterling in the 16th minute only, after receiving fantastic cooking from Kevin de Bruyne and an impressive composure inside the extension found the net and gave an advantage that lasted until the end.
