Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has revealed what he told Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse after Manchester City beat Southampton 4-1 on Saturday.

De Bruyne said, “I was talking to James Ward-Prowse at the end, they always play good, they just sometimes miss a striker.

“For half an hour we had it tough, then we had chances and thankfully scored the goal. We played really well in the second half. The goal we conceded was soft, but we played really well.

“The play really good football, they press well and are compact. They are a good side.”
