Southampton achieved a respectable result yesterday following their 1-1 draw with Manchester City, which extended Claude Puel’s men’s unbeaten run to five matches in the Premier League.
The Saints were actually unfortunate not to take all three points away from their clash with Pep Guardiola’s men after leading the match following Nathan Redmond’s goal, but there were no complaints from the Saints players.

Great teamwork today. Was always going to be a tough place to go and we worked really hard for that point. ???????? pic.twitter.com/pQKHZyJrQV

Southampton currently sit eighth in the Premier League standings as the Europa League side look to secure their spot in the competition again next season, but they now face a tricky run of fixtures, hosting Chelsea and Inter Milan in the next week before matches against Hull City and Liverpool.
Puel’s side will be looking for improvements within that run of games, as Southampton have failed to score in three of their last five matches in all competitions and have scored three or more goals only three times this season – against Sparta Prague, West Ham United and Burnley.
