Manchester City go third after easy win at Southampton

Manchester City go third after easy win at Southampton”

April. 16 (ANI): Manchester City came out with a dominant performance as they defeated Southampton 3-0 to strengthen their hopes of a top-four Premier League finish at the St. Mary's Stadium here on Saturday.

After a goalless first half at St Mary's Stadium, Pep Guardiola saw Kompany head in his first Premier League goal since August 2015 from David Silva's corner.

Sergio Aguero threatened twice in the opening few minutes as City started at pace, first volleying a hard half-chance wide from Kevin De Bruyne's pass and then turning his defender and sending a low, angled shot spinning wide.

De Bruyne was also the architect for the third, clipping a right-wing cross to the far post for Aguero to secure City's first win in four away matches. "I would have been done and dusted if I needed every single time to get back in and time to adapt", Kompany said after only his eighth appearance of a frustrating stop-start season. The Spaniard replied in favour of his captain though, claiming that provided Kompany can stay fit, there is a long-term future for the Belgian at the club. I know how important he is to the fans, what he has done here and he has huge, huge quality.

"It's ups and downs but what gets you up is you keep looking towards your objective".

Guardiola believes there is still a long way to go in the race for the Champions League places and said: "I am very happy with the way we played". My feeling before was he was just waiting to score a goal.

City picked up where they left off at the end of the first half, and Jesus Navas forced a superb save from Forster who palmed a fiery effort over the bar.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola misses the pressure associated with coaching in the Bundesliga and LaLiga, though he loves English supporters. Not just the defensive part - he's helped us a lot - but he is doing all he can do in our process to create chances. "We were nervous at the beginning of the game".

'We have good players, ' he said.

Everton are reported to be showing an interest in Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany, who faces an uncertain future.
