GOAL: STERLING: MANCHESTER CITY 5 - 1 SOUTHAMPTON: Lovely ball from Aguero, fabulous finish from Sterling. He smashes it past McCarthy into the far corner, very unselfish from Aguero.
SO CLOSE: Sane does well to work the ball on to his left foot, and his effort cannons off the angle where the bar and post meet. That would have been some goal. A sublime effort.
BIG SAVE: Ederson does really well to parry away a Danny Ings header from a corner kick, this is a lot better from Mark Hughes' side.
Corner to Manchester City...Laporte is unhappy as the referee awards a goal kick, however replays show that it came off a Southampton body.
Better from Ederson. He collects a Redmond cross as he was unchallenged.
Ings should really have scored his second.
BIG MISS: Ederson is looking shaky. He saved Ward-Prowse's effort however only managed to fumble the effort, with the defence recovering well. Very poor handling from Ederson who recovered well.
SECOND HALF: MANCHESTER CITY 4 - 1 SOUTHAMPTON: We're back underway here in Manchester!
HALF TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 4 - 1 SOUTHAMPTON: What a first-half! Manchester City are cruising here at the Etihad, however Guardiola will not be happy with the sloppy penalty conceded.
GOAL: STERLING: MANCHESTER CITY 4 - 1 SOUTHAMPTON: Sergio Aguero does well to keep the ball in and picks out Raheem Sterling in the six yard box. He had the simple task of finishing first time past Alex McCarthy. Game over.
THREE MINUTES ADDED TIME.
PENALTY!? The referee waves away protest as Raheem Sterling gets in behind Lemina, referee probably got this one right, however more nervous defending from the visitors.
What a half this has been!
Ings made no mistake from the spot.
GOAL: INGS: MANCHESTER CITY 3 - 1 SOUTHAMPTON: As cool as you like from Danny Ings. After winning the penalty he slots the ball in to the bottom right hand corner, correct decision to give there from the referee.
PENALTY! Ederson brings down Danny Ings after he beat him to the ball, correct decision to give.
A goal inside the opening five minutes, fine Aguero strike and a moment of magic from David Silva could have wrapped up the game in the opening 15 minutes. This could become embarrassing.
McCarthy does well to save from Aguero from close range.

Ward-Prowse is booked for petulance. He booted the ball away after David Silva was clearly fouled, silly.
Kyle Walker has picked up an injury but it looks like he will try to run it off.
