Manchester City suffered a sensational defeat to Southampton in the League Cup quarter-finals and were eliminated from the tournament.
Pep Guardiola’s wards failed in the five-minute period in the middle of the first half. First, in the 23rd minute, the “citizens” accepted the French striker Sekou Mar, and after five minutes the guests doubled their advantage – Moussa Genepo scored.
Shortly after the break, Guardiola made triple substitutions with Nathan Ake, Kevin De Bruyne and Rodrigo Hernandez on the pitch, but that didn’t help City turn the tide of the match.
It is worth noting that Southampton is in the last place in the English Premier League (EPL), while Manchester City is fighting for the first place with Arsenal.
Manchester United beat Charlton, Newcastle and Nottingham Forest to reach the semi-finals of the League Cup.
The next match for Guardiola’s team will be a match against Manchester United in the national championship. The match will take place on January 14 at Old Trafford.
It was previously reported that Lionel Messi scored a goal that helped Paris Saint-Germain beat Angers in the national championship in their first post-World Cup game..
