The gaps between the top teams in the English league are starting to stand out even more, both in the table and in ability and results. After Liverpool’s predatory 0: 7 win over Crystal Palace that opened today’s games (Saturday), Manchester City responded with a small 0: 1 over Southampton, one of their rivals for a place in the top four in the table.
Southampton – Manchester City 1: 0
After two consecutive draws, Pep Guardiola’s side came back to win the Premier League, and although it was a pretty small win, the opponent this time was among the surprises of the season and those are definitely three good points in this away game.
With that, the Blues rose to fifth place in the table, while the locals dropped to fourth place, with one point more than City. By the way, the gap of Pep from the leading Liverpool remains 8 points. Raheem Sterling made the difference tonight with a 16th minute goal from Kevin de Bruyne’s cook.
