English Premier League

Manchester City 2-1 Southampton

Manchester City kept pace with leaders Liverpool as Kyle Walker’s 86th-minute winner saw them beat a gutsy Southampton at Etihad Stadium.

The Saints, who were beaten 9-0 by Leicester in their last Premier League outing, took a shock lead through James Ward-Prowse in the first half.

But after applying heavy pressure throughout Sergio Aguero finally scored his side’s equaliser, finishing Walker’s low cross.

Walker then fired home Angelino’s cross as the game drew to a close to clinch a priceless three points for Pep Guardiola’s side.
