Pep Guardiola unimpressed with his side’s performance in the Southampton win.
The Cityzens won their first match in three games previously drawing with West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United in the process.
Guardiola was concerned with his team’s lack of composure in front of goal with Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne all missing decent chances.

“Our position is to try to win games, to be up there as quick as possible and as close as possible to the top of the league but the reality is our momentum up front is not good,” Guardiola said.
“Not much in the first half and the second half we could finish to close the game and we could not to do it and that’s why I think we will continue to struggle this season if we don’t break this situation to score goals.
“Maybe one day we unblock and the players come back in better form and we can do it.
“We had enough chances in the second half on counter attacks to score more goals but the back four were brilliant, Rodri and [Ilkay] Gundogan were brilliant as well so a good victory for us.”
