  • Man City on top, Chelsea move second | Bangkok Post: news

On Sunday, November 4, Manchester City defeated Southampton by 6-1, further strengthening their position at the top of the table.

Southampton may have ended their barren run in front of goal, but Ings' 30th-minute penalty never felt like changing the game after City scored three times in the opening 18 minutes.

The visitors pulled one back with a penalty but it proved a minor setback for City, which again dominated Southampton in the second half. And then if you press them the other way, you've got your back four on the halfway line you live in fear that Sane or Sterling are going to penetrate that and they're straight through you.

"We were brilliant at times". "It is great times at the moment".

Manchester City's Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is to be sidelined for almost a month and a half with a left knee injury, the Premier League defending champion has announced.

The win moved City two points clear of Liverpool, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Arsenal on Saturday, and Sterling was pleased to take advantage after his former club slipped up.

Sterling unselfishly squared for Sane in second-half stoppage time to allow the Germany global to score City's sixth, and he said the winger often does the same in return.


"It was always like this, I don't want to be arrogant, but with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, we were always the team with less [goals] conceded", he said.

"First 20 minutes was excellent". The game was not over.

"He's a guy who gave us a lot, but he's still a young player, he can improve, he can be more calm inside the box, but he has desire and that's why he's extended his contract here for many years". The penalty was converted by Gabriel Jesus.

Chelsea grabbed three points of their own as they joined City and Liverpool unbeaten after 11 matches.

Speaking of Morata, Chelsea manager said the Spanish striker has a great potential. "We were lucky because we had Eden on the bench".

"We were lucky to score the fourth goal at the end of the first half otherwise the second half would be hard". In the defensive phase we need to improve.
