City Back on Top After Beating SouthamptonLatest News, Sports Saturday, November 28th, 2015
Manchester City got their Premier League title challenge back on track with a win over Southampton.
Raheem Sterling crossed for Kevin de Bruyne to slot the hosts ahead before City midfielder Fernandinho’s header appeared to strike Steven Davis’ arm.
Fabian Delph added the home side’s second with a deflected shot but Shane Long nodded in to give Saints hope.
Long had a penalty appeal turned down before Aleksandar Kolarov fired in City’s third with an angled strike.
Fernandinho appeared to block Long’s shot with his arm after City keeper Willy Caballero had palmed away an effort from Dusan Tadic.
City, whose earlier shout for a spot-kick was equally as strong, took advantage by restoring their two-goal lead as they bounced back after defeats by Liverpool in the Premier League and Juventus in the Champions League.
