Match Highlights View More Below

City continued their title charge with an emphatic 4-1 victory over Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.

Though the score-line suggests the Blues coasted home, the Saints proved stubborn opponents with the balance of the game only swinging the hosts’ way in first-half injury time when goals from Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko provided much-needed breathing space.

Yaya Toure had opened the scoring after just three minutes but Ricky Lambert later drew the visitors level – both goals were dispatched from the penalty spot.

It took a late goal from Stevan Jovetic to guarantee three more precious points as the race for the title enters the final furlong – and on Grand National day, City will be hoping there will be a few of the chasing pack who don’t complete the circuit in the coming weeks.
