Manchester City who has scored 16 goals in their last three home games could not manage a single shot on target against Southampton as they played out a 90th-minute draw. Manchester City could not find a way through the solid Southampton defense and they ended up drawing with the defending champions at the Etihad Stadium.
Southampton Hold Manchester City to a Goalless Draw
Manchester City who did not manage a single shot on target until the 90th minute, were sloppy in possession as well as lacking their usual attacking spark in attack and the Saints will feel they should have left the Etihad Stadium with three point but VAR denied them a penalty and a red card to Walker.
The Saints star player Armstrong had burst into the box after Manchester City gave the ball away cheaply but, despite being first to the ball he was adjudged to have fouled Walker as he attempted a challenge. That reprieve brought a raucous response from the City supporters, who had already been making themselves heard all afternoon, but they could not galvanise their side.
City almost had their three points in the final minute of the game after Raheem Sterling converted Phil Foden’s header which was saved, but he was flagged offside. Saints remain winless after their fourth draw in five league games, while the draw meant City missed the chance to go top of the table, for a couple of hours at least.
