Manchester City thump Southampton to return to top of Premier League

Manchester City thump Southampton to return to top of Premier League

Guardiola's players punished nearly every mistake made in the opening stages by a beleaguered Southampton side as they led 3-0 after just 18 minutes. With the Manchester derby in a couple of days after this game, we might see selections affected a tad bit.

Manchester City extended their unbeaten run to 11 games in the Premier League and returned to the top of the table on Sunday.

David Silva slammed home their third from Sane's flick-on after 18 minutes but Danny Ings did pull one back from the spot after Ederson brought him down in the area. Kevin de Bruyne and Claudio Bravo are long-term absentees while Eliaquim Mangala is not yet match-fit. Ilkay Gundogan and Nicolás Otamendi have both been declared fit, though not necessarily ready to step straight back into the side after being sidelined for several weeks by injury.

He said: "Every game is important".

'We have an important job on the field to get the victory and we need to make history for this club and that is what we want to do'. However, Ivan Ordets, Maksym Malyshev and Fernando are all unlikely to feature for the Ukrainians.

Southampton had the minor consolation of becoming the first team in 630 minutes to score against City but the leaders' form is ominous for the rest of the division.

The England forward scored twice and caused the Saints problems all afternoon as City move two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Should Manchester City lose against Shakhtar, they will be the first English side in the history of the European Cup/Champions League to lose four consecutive home matches - the only other side to lose three in a row are Spurs in November 2016.

Shakhtar Donetsk faced 24 shots in their 0-3 defeat to Man City on MD3, the most they'd faced in a Champions League game since September 2015 against Real Madrid (26).

One goal became two six minutes later as the division's highest scorers went through the gears, with Aguero tapping in at the back post for his landmark 150th Premier League goal following some good work from Sterling.

Shakhtar Donetsk used to be a hard tie a couple of years ago but they've lost their way a bit now and it should be another comfortable night for Manchester City.

Palace's hopes of securing a crucial point vanished when they conceded two goals in five second-half minutes.
