Manchester City turned up the pressure and it paid off in the 65th minute when Kevin De Bruyne’s free-kick was headed in by Aymeric Laporte.

Both De Bruyne and substitute Gabriel Jesus struck the woodwork for the leaders but they could not find a way past a Southampton defence superbly led by Mohammed Salisu.

Soutampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters said,”I couldn’t hear a thing!”

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”I don’t need a good result even today winning the game (to know) the title race will not be over. In January no-one is champions.
There are many games, many tough games like today and that’s all.
Today we played to play good and tried to defend our badge and our people as best as possible and the title will always be a consequence of what we have done.Today was really good.”
