Che Adams tries a cross-field ball across the defence, straight to Riyad Mahrez.
The winger moves inside, makes space, and whips a lovely ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the area. City lead again.

Watch the penalty incident
The one that was given – and scored – in Southampton’s favour.
33′ – City 1-1 SaintsSimon Bajkowski
Fernandinho is struggling a bit with Southampton able to play the ball in behind him and expose the defence, hence the amount of work Ederson is having to do. Southampton have responded to conceding by continuing to attack and earned the penalty.
Meanwhile, Ederson tips over a long-range Redmond shot

City want a penalty
Phil Foden reacts quickly to some missed control by Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy. Foden just gets there first and looks to be caught but keeps his feet and the move ends in a corner.
VAR check for the penalty and decide McCarthy didn’t touch Foden. Would have been interesting to see what happened if Foden went down.

Concerning signs back on display
There were signs that Sunday was a game too far from City in this non-stop assault on four trophies – the intensity was not as great as normal, the pressing not as tight, and the urgency not as obvious.
Those signs are very much on display again tonight. Southampton are playing around City well, but they are being afforded the kind of time and space which the Blues don’t normally give you.

A bit better from the Blues
City have stepped it up a little since the goal, but Southampton are still trying to play their way through the home side.
A couple of good moves from City but no more clear chances just yet.
14′ – City 1-0 SaintsKEY EVENT
De Bruyne scores!!!
Against the run of play, City lead.
Dias finds Ales Zinchenko in the box with a wonderful cross-field ball, he feeds Phil Foden whose shot is saved, and Kevin De Bruyne pokes home on the goalline.
