Player ratings as resilient Saints frustrate champions


Southampton denied Manchester City a 13th consecutive Premier League win by frustrating the reigning champions with a resilient performance at St Mary’s.

Kyle Walker-Peters’ first ever Premier League goal was eventually cancelled out by Aymeric Laporte, with Southampton taking points off City for the second time this season.

The Saints started in spectacular fashion and there were only seven minutes on the clock when Walker-Peters fired the hosts into the lead, making his first ever Premier League goal a special one with a well taken finish.

Playing well on the counter, Southampton had the ball in the net again midway through the first half when Armando Broja expertly finished beyond Ederson. But the rising star was fractionally offside.

City, on the other hand, were slow out of the blocks and not at their usual high standard of performance. They took time to grow into the game, although began turning the screw as the first half progressed to create some chances.
