(Video) Aymeric Laporte heads City level after awful Southampton marking

Posted by

Manchester City centre back Aymeric Laporte tends to pop up with a big goal every so often for City. 

The French-born Spaniard has done this once again today, with a thundering header into the Southampton goal to level the scoring for Man City.

Some poor marking at a set-piece was all the invitation the centre half needed in order to ghost into the six yard area and head home the ball from point blank range.

City are relentlessly pressing for another goal as they look to consolidate their advantage at the top of the table, while Southampton are trying to collect every point they can on order to avoid being dragged down in the relegation dog fight.

Considering how much they have flirted with relegation in previous years they will be more than happy to settle for a boring mid-table finish this season, which would very much indicate some improvement from last year.
