Manchester City recorded a 5-2 thumping of Southampton at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.


The victory saw City moved 14 points clear at the top of the table as they got back to winning ways after their 21-game winning streak was ended by defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.


Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez scored twice and Ilkay Gundogan added another in the five goals thriller for the Citizens.

After the game, Pep Guardiola praised the Saints admitting they are the best side his team have faced this season.

"The first 20 to 25 minutes, they were the best team we’ve faced here," Guardiola said after the game. "Only respect and admiration for Ralph [Hasenhuttl’s] team.

"We suffered a lot to control them. We could not do good build-up because we could not contact with the holding midfielders. They were brilliant and today was won why the quality of the players we have.

"A tough game but one more victory. One game more we are 14 clear, nine games to play so Fulham - next one."

Just so you know, Chei Adams and James Ward-Prowse scored the two goals for Southampton.
