A captain's goal from Vincent Kompany powered Manchester City to a 3-0 Premier League win away to Southampton.

City had their killer second 13 minutes from time, hitting their opponents in a counter-attacking move that culminated in De Bruyne bursting clean through and squaring for Sane to roll the ball home.

Manchester City: Bravo 6, Clichy 6, Kompany 7, Otamendi 6, Navas 6, Fernandinho 6, Toure 6, Sane 7, Silva 6, De Bruyne 8, Aguero 6.

City are now seven points clear of Everton in fifth and sixth-placed Manchester United, who play Chelsea on Sunday as one of two games in hand on their neighbours. "When this happens I feel like I'm giving something back to the fans and the team, and that's what you see in those moments".

Manuel Pellegrini guided City to the semifinal in 2015-16 - its best performance in the competition - but Guardiola said his players are still gathering the experience they need in order to conquer Europe.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola misses the pressure related to training in the Bundesliga and LaLiga, though he adores English assistants. Not just the defensive part - he's helped us a lot - but he is doing all he can do in our process to create chances.

Guardiola's men also have the FA Cup to look forward to, with a game against Arsenal scheduled in the semi-finals next weekend.

Southampton ended a run of four successive league defeats to Manchester City with a 4-2 victory in this fixture last season.

"This result is so important for our qualification for the Champions League", said Guardiola, whose side host neighbours United in their next league game. And hopefully he can stay fit until the end of the season.

"Vincent is a central defender he is very good with the ball".

"I like both to be involved, I have confidence in both of them, so we will see".

And it laid the platform for the visitors to cut Saints apart once Kompany, who marked his goal with an exuberant celebration, had made the breakthrough.

City eventually broke the deadlock in the 56th minute as Kompnany rose above his marker to head home his first goal in over a year.
