Pep Guardiola’s side returned to winning ways in style with a convincing win over Southampton that sends us 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
City were made to work hard for the victory against a Southampton side who started stronger, but fell behind when De Bruyne tapped in on the rebound after Alex McCarthy parried Phil Foden’s initial shot.
The visitors levelled inside 10 minutes, with James Ward-Prowse converting a penalty when Aymeric Laporte hauled down Jannik Vestergaard at a corner and City then had our penalty appeals turned away referee Jon Moss and the VAR officials ruled McCarthy got a touch on the ball as he brought down Foden.
Our frustrations were eased when Mahrez capitalised on Che Adams misplaced pass to restore our lead with a fine finish before the break and Gundogan added a third in first half added time, steering in from close range after the Algerian winger saw another effort come back of the post.
