Man City 4-1 Southampton – Citizens Keep Pressure On Title Rivals After Four-Goal Etihad Win (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Manchester City 4-1 Southampton – Premier League 5th April 2014


An early penalty from dead-ball supremo Yaya Touré set a Man City not at their best on their way to a 4-1 win at the Etihad. Southampton produced some decent periods of play but all too often failed to produce an end product.

Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko also netted just before the break to make it 3-1 after Rickie Lambert had netted a spot-kick for the visitors. After the break, sub Stevan Jovetic made it 4-1 to put City to within a point of Liverpool, and still with a game in hand.

Nasri’s goal was, however, full of controversy with the assist-provider David Silva way offside when the ball was flicked to him by Edin Dzeko but the linesman failed to spot the obvious offside. Jay Rodriguez was also stretchered off midway through the first-half in what looked like a serious injury. England boss Roy Hodgson, who was present at the Etihad, will no doubt be hoping the injury doesn’t keep the Southampton attacker out of this summer’s World Cup.
