Southampton's Kyle Walker-Peters Stuns Premier League Leaders Manchester City With Superb Finish

Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters stunned Manchester City with a superb goal in the first half of their match at St Mary’s.

Walker-Peters finished off a well-worked move to put Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side ahead against the Premier League leaders after just seven minutes.

Walker-Peters combined well with Nathan Redmond on the right wing before curling a finish past Ederson with the outside of his right foot.


It is Walker-Peters’ first Premier League goal in his 68th appearance, and only the third first half goal Manchester City have conceded in the league this season.

Southampton thought they had taken a 2-0 lead midway through the half when Armando Broja finished well past Ederson after being played through on goal.

However, his celebrations were short-lived after seeing the linesman flag for offside.


A few minutes later, the Chelsea loanee was brought down by Ederson inside the box, but the linesman again flagged for offside to the relief of the City goalkeeper.

City responded late in the half, with Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster producing a fine save to deny Raheem Sterling from close range.

Pep Guardiola's took control after the break and eventually found their equaliser through an Aymeric Laporte header.

They had a strong shout for a penalty turned down in the closing stages when Kevin De Bruyne was brought down on the edge of the area, while Southampton's Stuart Armstrong avoided a red card for a studs-up challenge on Laporte.

But they were unable to find a late goal, with their winning run in the Premier League finally coming to an end after 12 consecutive league victories.
