After a nail-biting night at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola spoke to the media about what was a more than nervy ninety minutes of football for both sides.

City maintained control of the match from the very beginning but a sturdy Southampton defence left City stifled for much of the match.

It wasn’t until the 95th minute of the match when Raheem Sterling got the winner for City from a pin-point shot that went flying past Forster.

Guardiola speaks on his team’s impressive win.

“It was a good night. All of the supporters created some special moments. In the last seconds, we enjoyed the celebrations.

It was a good moment in the locker room with the staff and the players. We have to enjoy these moments.”

We rarely see moments like these in football and it was certainly a moment to remember as City earn win number 19 in a row.

“You have to discover the pleasure of winning games. The guys who are scoring goals are full of joy. The goal was amazing because there was no space, there were ten players in the box.

“We were close today to a draw but when that happens, I will not be able to be angry with the players. They do absolutely what they have to do.

“They deserved to win tonight because we were the team that tried to win.”
