The City does not tire of thrashing

After the defeat against United, Southampton paid for the broken dishes. Mahrez scored two goals and De Bruyne two more. Outstanding Foden.

Manchester City was short-lived in their last derby defeat. Those of Pep Guardiola have reacted soon. They have also done it, winning in a resounding way at Southampton (5-2) and led by a Riyad Mahrez that is going through a sweet month: four goals and three assists in their last six league games. The Algerian has an individual imbalance that makes him unstoppable on good afternoons. A cut for the center and a whole goal to shoot with his left: this is how the second goal of the afternoon entered, when City was still protesting an incredible penalty that the referee did not whistle on Foden ... and that the VAR did not consider a maximum penalty .

After conceding nine goals at Old Trafford on their last visit to Manchester, Southampton came out for the Etihad with a ton of danger intent. Hasenhüttl's men are at the bottom of the table, but they managed to dominate the 'citizens' in the early stages of the match until a dream combination between Ruben Dias, Zinchenko and Foden finished off De Bruyne to make it 1-0. A little later, in the opposite area, a penalty on Vestergaard was converted by Ward Prowse to make the equalizer. The small English midfielder also had the opportunity to extend the result, but Ederson responded to his long shot.Before the break, Mahrez took the baton and decided the afternoon for the side of the Premier League leaders. He scored a home-brand goal, slashing and shooting, and facilitated another for Gündogan before the break. The pace continued afterward and Mahrez himself sentenced with the fourth goal, despite Che Adams giving the Saints a final push of hope, who finished kneeling half an hour from the end when Foden connected with De Bruyne and the Belgian dialed 5-2.
