Saints striker Austin asked to explain apparent gesture during Man City defeat

English Premier League: Manchester City 3-1 Southampton

English Premier League: Manchester City 3-1 Southampton

And while it would be a huge statement to inflict a fourth defeat of the campaign on City and leave them trailing by 10 points, Shaqiri said the equation was not in their thoughts.

Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League this season and go into the game against City off the back of an emphatic 5-1 victory against Arsenal.

The defending champions can not afford to fall further behind Liverpool and the match at the Etihad is looking like a must-win game for City. Danilo and Zinchenko won't get the help they need, then, which could mean a season-ending defeat for Guardiola's side. We couldn't stop this moment.

"I know that's how it works in that situation, but I'm not concerned". "Our pride has been hurt over the last few weeks but we have everything to play for and it depends on us".

"So we look at ourselves, and tomorrow against Southampton, we have to do what we do, and try to win, and when that happens, everything comes back to a normal position".

It is a match City can not afford to lose - and realistically have to win considering the relentless progress of Liverpool, who remain unbeaten 20 matches into the season.

Asked how his side will tackle the Liverpool match he added: "The same as always, we want to win".

City go into the game having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 matches. The Saints were gifted a way back into the game when Pierre-Emile Hjobjerg latched onto Oleksander Zinchenko's poor touch to fire in an equaliser.

And to compound Southampton's frustrations, Raheem Sterling's cross at the other end was diverted past Alex McCarthy via Ward-Prowse's boot to make it 2-1, then Sergio Aguero doubled the lead with a header from Zinchenko's cross just before the break.

The Frenchman's opener on five minutes owed much to the brilliant skill of Marcus Rashford who dribbled beyond two Bournemouth defenders before crossing for Pogba to tap into an empty net. Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial took the game by the scruff of the neck, their interchanges in the number ten space too quick for the flat lines of a Rafael Benitez midfield.

"The worst thing that could happen today would be that we lose a player", said Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

"I didn't see a smile on any faces in the dressing room".
