Southampton 0-3 Man City

Manchester City strengthened their hopes of a top-four Premier League finish as a slick second-half display saw off a subdued Southampton

Injury-hit skipper Vincent Kompany headed David Silva’s left-wing corner past Fraser Forster in the second half for his first goal in 20 months.

Leroy Sane calmly dispatched Kevin de Bruyne’s pass after a quick counter, with Sergio Aguero’s far-post volley sealing all 3 points for the Blues.

Mid-table Saints failed to create many chances against a City side that looked far more comfortable in defence thanks to Kompany, Dusan Tadic blazing over with their best opportunity before the break.

Pep Guardiola’s side are now seven points clear of fifth-placed Everton.
