Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had an awkward exchange with Sky Sports reporter Patrick Davison following his side's 1-1 draw with Southampton.

The Premier League leaders dropped points for the first time since November after coming from behind to earn a point at Saint Mary's.

City dominated the final 30 minutes but failed to find a winner, something Guardiola didn't seem to mind post-match.

"Probably one of our best performances of the season," Guardiola said at full-time.

"Really, that good? You thought it was one of your best performances of the season?" Davison replied to a bemused looking Guardiola.

"By far," Guardiola said as he leaned into his microphone, looking directly at Davison.

"What makes you say that? What did you like about it?" he said before Guardiola snapped back with, "Everything."

Fans have reacted to the interview and they think Guardiola is one of the best personalities in football right now.

One commented: "Angry Pep kills me."

Another added: "I love Pep so much he is actually insane and we need more of it."

A third said: "I low-key love him he’s a psychopath."

While someone else put: "This is like a scene from The Office. You can see the steam coming out of his ears."

Walker-Peters started the move by laying the ball off to Nathan Redmond, who returned the ball with a neat cutback.

The Saints full-back took a touch and fired a shot past Ederson with the outside of his left boot for his first Premier League goal.

It took City a while to get back in it and Fraser Forster made a number of key saves.

Just past the hour mark, Aymeric Laporte headed home Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick to ensure the points were shared.

Stuart Armstrong escaped a red card after planting his studs on Laporte's leg, while City also wanted a penalty after Kevin De Bruyne was brought down by Oriol Romeu.

VAR had a look at both incidents but didn't intervene.

Southampton are one of the only teams to take points from City this season and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl paid tribute to his team.

"You could see it meant a lot for them not to fail to win twice against us this season," he said.

"But we had chances to score a second goal, the belief was there, our attitude was unbelievable, and the passion was exceptional. Everybody is super proud of this team."

City remain 12 points clear of Liverpool at the top, who face Crystal Palace on Sunday.
