Manchester City survived a brief scare to beat Southampton and reduce league leaders Liverpool's advantage to seven points.

Southampton responded to David Silva's early opener when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg took the ball off Oleksandr Zinchenko and fired it into the top corner. City had luck on their side when Raheem Sterling's shot deflected off James Ward-Prowse to make it 2-1. Sergio Aguero's back-post header completed the scoring before half-time.
