The well-known ball dominance of the Master had more likely to work like a trott when Southampton City’s Pressing was playing early and passed through a fine outer custody of right-back Walker-Peters in the lead (7.). A guided tour, which was also well earned until the break.
The saints had to invest a lot, but made life difficult for their guests. City hardly came to chances and was lucky that Broja had come out of the away from the alleged 2-0 (23.). GUARDIOLAS MANNEN became stronger until the end of the first half, as a sterling, were unused two great opportunities (35th, 38th).
The Saturday evening also remained extremely refreshing after the sideways, because Southampton recognized his chance and by Bednarek (46., 54.) and Broja (53rd, 54th) as well as the 2-0 could have achieved as City by Rodri (48th, 59.) The compensation.
The saints also have aluminum luck
Sometimes a Guardiola team also needs a dormant ball: Laporte dissolved dynamically after de Bruynes free-kick flank and headed untenably into the short corner – 1: 1 (65.).
The compensation then laid the switch noticeably. The householders were allowed to thank the post twice (de Bruyne, 70.; Gabriel Jesus, 72.) that they did not go straight back. And even if Southampton himself no longer sniffed the victory – the 1: 1 brought the team of Ralph Hasenhüttl over time.
Now it’s up to Liverpool
Through the point loss at the Saints, City is now twelve counter after the 23rd Matchday before his worst pursuer Liverpool, which has denied two games less. Theoretically, the reds are ideally only six points.
