MANCHESTER, England -- Three points from Manchester City's 3-1 victory Saturday against Southampton at the Etihad.
1. De Bruyne helps flaky City get back on track
These were the moments that Manchester City paid £55 million for. Kevin De Bruyne was decisive in the win over Southampton, first in scoring the opening goal, then providing the delicious assist that supplied Aleksandar Kolarov the chance to make it 3-1 and kill off the challenge of a dangerous, resurgent Southampton.
