Manchester City thrashed Southampton 6-1 to grab two-point lead at the top of Premier League





Manchester City thrashed  Southampton  6-1 to claim a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League. Hoedt's own goal gave Manchester City a sixth-minute lead, the centre-back, whose initial failed clearance brought about the move, finding his own net when attempting to keep Sane's shot out.





Aguero scored a goal to double their tally from close range after Sterling breezed through Southampton defence and passed into the danger zone. Sterling helped City again for the third, with his cross pushed on by Sane, and Silva smashed home on the volley.








Danny Ings penalty made Southhampton pull one back, but Sterling restored the three-goal just before the interval, slotting home after tireless work from Aguero. The visitors initially improved after the break, with James Ward-Prowse and Ings forcing Ederson into three vital saves between them.



But, the host still looked in control and they got a fifth just past the hour, Sterling drilling under Alex McCarthy after Aguero fed him into the area. Sane scored the sixth goal in closing minutes, picking out the bottom-left corner from the edge of the box after being found on the break by Sterling.
