Manchester City 1-1 Southampton as Super sub Iheanacho cancels out Redmond opener, Manchester City took on Southampton in the premier league game on Sunday afternoon in a bid to get out of their mini rut of 4 games without a win but they started on the back foot when Southampton scored just before the half hour mark thanks to Nathan Redmond who intercepted John Stone’s back pass and squared Bravo to make it 1-0. But City finally got back on level terms after the break when Kelechi Iheanacho came on sub for de Bruyne in second half and tapped home from close range.
Kelechi Iheanacho has scored eight times in his past 11 Premier League games, Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League despite seeing their winless streak extend to a fifth game as Southampton earned a deserved draw.
The visitors led when John Stones’ sloppy pass allowed Nathan Redmond to round Claudio Bravo and slot in. City improved after being booed off by some home fans at the break, equalising when half-time substitute Kelechi Iheanacho prodded in Leroy Sane’s low cross.
Pep Guardiola’s side controlled the second half as they searched for a winner, but Saints keeper Fraser Forster produced splendid saves to deny Ilkay Gundogan and David Silva. City’s inability to grab a second goal means ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola has failed to win in five successive matches for only the second time in his managerial career. However, the point was still enough to lift the Blues back above Arsenal and Liverpool to the Premier League summit. Southampton stay eighth after extending their unbeaten league run to a fifth game.
