Premier League: Aymeric Laporte rescues Manchester City in Southampton draw

Pep Guardiola backed Manchester City to hold their nerve after the Premier leaders’ 12- game-winning run reached an end as Aymeric Laporte got a 1-1 draw against Southampton on Saturday.

Manchester City were rocked by Kyle Walker-Peters’ first-ever top-flight goal in the starting minutes at St Mary’s.

After a bad first half by their high standards, Guardiola’s side got into gear after the break.

Spain defender Laporte headed the equaliser, however, City couldn’t extend their winning streak in a one-sided finale that saw the visitors lay seige to the Southampton goal.

The champions had to settle for a result that left them 12 points clear of second-placed Liverpool, who have two games in hand and face Crystal Palace on Sunday.
