City held by Saints as 12-game winning run ends

Manchester City’s long winning run in the Premier League finally came to an end as the leaders were held to a 1-1 draw away at Southampton on Saturday.

Seeking a 13th successive victory, Pep Guardiola’s side were rocked early on as Kyle Walker-Peters’ superb finish gave Southampton a surprise lead.

Southampton were good value for their advantage and could have scored more against an unusually lackluster City.

The hosts had more chances early in the second half but City finally got into their stride and Aymeric Laporte headed them level from Kevin de Bruyne’s delivery in the 65th minute.

City took charge after that with De Bruyne thumping a shot against the post but Southampton dug in for a well-deserved share of the spoils.

City have 57 points from 23 games with Liverpool on 45 albeit having played two fewer games. Southampton are 12th with 25 points.
