Saints should be proud of their efforts at the Etihad this afternoon. A Ward-Prowse opener gave Saints spirit and a no risk strategy was mostly fruitful as Southampton frustrated Man City.

Officials too lenient?

Behave, let McCarthy take as much time as he wanted on goal kicks, booked Ederson the one and only time he did the same.

A week is a long time in ..the football world. YES - it is.
Even though the players showed that over two away games at the Etihad they knew how to fight, that embarrassing 0-9 result may stay in the record books - forever. We can't talk about a " moral victory over 70 minutes", but it certainly had Pepe biting his nails .
Nevertheless, Ralph has understood (1) that you can't play the same side week in and week out -as it depends on the opposition. (2) given the right circumstances a packed defence can DAJFU - (even for 70 minutes) and given the fact that City had 26 shots and 17 corners, both of their goals were somewhat lucky - albeit well-taken chances.

Ward-Prowse's goal may hold off his critics for another week or so, but it shows that in a forward position he can be as sharp as Danny Ings on the day, and his goal was reminiscent of a similiar effort (sometime) last season?.
His dismal displays of late have seen him dropping deeper and deeper and losing out in the rough-and-tumble of defensive duties, he's much sharper playing further up the field.

McCarthy looks more confident and now it's up to Gunn to win back his place - if he can.
After last season's (justifiable) criticism, Jack Stephens looks atotally different player, and may have won his place for a while. ¨

YES - the Everton game is " massive" to use that over-used word around the club.
A good display ..3 points and some goals are a long time coming and will give a breathing space before the international break. The Everton game - and the three in 8 days in early December are all against the clubs around us . Wins (even scrappy ones) will see us move up the table to some safety...the alternative .. isn't anything to discuss at the present moment.
