Man City star Vincent Kompany sends warning to Arsenal and Man United

Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick in Southampton's 4-2 win in this fixture last season

Vincent Kompany's first Premier League goal since August 2015 helped condemn Southampton to a 3-0 defeat at St Mary's.

Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero then made sure of the points as City moved into third in the table, leaving Guardiola to laud his skipper. "I want him fit enough to play every week - he has suffered for long periods but he is a real, real central defender".

"When this happens (scoring), I feel I am giving something back to the fans".

"We didn't concede absolutely anything". We were able finally to make 15, 20, 25 passes in a row.

"We have to believe in ourselves and tactically we have to play for each other defensively and offensively". "From a set piece we scored a goal and they had to push up and after that we could get some players between the lines and counter attack and kill the game".

"I'm so happy, we played good", said the City boss.

City's Yaya Toure provided the first on-target effort early in the second half but his effort posed no threat to Forster, before James Ward-Prowse curled an ambitious free kick over the angle of Claudio Bravo's goal.

There is, however, a possibility that Guardiola could secure some silverware in his first campaign at the club in the form of the FA Cup, with a semi-final clash against Arsenal to come next week.

Southampton have shown good steel of late, however, losing just one of their last six matches prior to this weekend, and they almost snatched a leveller when defender Yoshida peeled off at the back post but sent his header straight at Claudio Bravo.

"It is a big race [for the Champions League] with lots of things involved". They have managed to take thirteen points from a possible 18 on offer, which has allowed them to close on eighth placed West Bromwich Albion, following their impressive 1-0 win at the Hawthorns last weekend.

"Until the last game at Watford, the qualification for the Champions League will be so tough", said Guardiola. Everton also sit on 57 points however the Toffees have played one more game than their Manchester counterparts. "We showed we could make good opportunities against this team but it was not sufficient and it was hard for us".
