English Premier League: Manchester City 3-1 Southampton

Five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend

The defending champions can not afford to fall further behind Liverpool and the match at the Etihad is looking like a must-win game for City. "It has not happened in the first years and it is not going to happen", he said. "We spoke about responsibilities and what we are as a team and they did it today, that was fantastic".

From a position of dominance just a few weeks ago, City have fallen to third, and have already lost more games this term (3) than they did in the entirety of the last (2).

The club will know that they can ill afford to drop more points at St Mary's, with the crunch clash against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium coming up next Thursday.

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published every day in the build-up to the 2019 January transfer window.

"It is normal for this to happen when you spend three to four months out injured - you come back in such a demanding period and you have a little bit of a problem".

"We will be prepared for a very tough game". But I definitely won't be stocking my fantasy roster with players from these two teams. "Before the cross to Sergio he made four or five actions to pass the ball and play". Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Harry Kane are two of the three league leaders in goals with 13, along with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

With the game having so much at stake, the smallest of details could be important - and supporters believe the Premier League's appointment of Taylor could be troublesome. He is young, he will learn.

Honestly, I think both Aubameyang and Kane will probably score at least one goal this week.
