Match Highlights

Classic highlights: Saints 1-3 City

On this day in 2018, an out-of-sorts City travelled to St Mary's....

Having blitzed our way through the first 15 games, taking 41 points from a possible 45, it's fair to say a sudden blip took everyone by surprise.

Though a first defeat of the campaign at Chelsea had been followed by a 3-1 win over Everton, the festive season was to turn somewhat sour over the space of four days.

A shock 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace just before Christmas and then a 2-1 Boxing Day loss at Leicester - with City having led in both games - saw Pep Guardiola's side drop to third in the table.
