  • Southampton 1, Sékou Mara (72’)

Welcome to your quick recap.

Manchester City win a hugely important match as the team was just in excellent form. City with Pep at the helm had nearly a perfect game. One that saw Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland score awesome goals to seal a nice win.

What can you say about the team? They have shown they are up or this race and do indeed keep pace here at the top.

A match that had a similar feel to most City matches, yet resulted in some great play for the team as the intensity was there early. The second half was more dominant for City especially after the Grealish goal.

One where City was in control with possession and chances created. They played a really great match and this time kept the pressure on that led to a win and keeps pace at the top. It means a win was the correct result.

City had so many players who played well and this seems to be a much needed boost as the club feels ‘back’ to its good form and the team of old.

Two others of note who did play well and were lively were Julian Alvarez and Ilkay Gundogan who were very good.

The story of the night is that City get a win and are still in the thick of the title race.

The stakes have risen and it will make for a fun close of season.
