It was a match many expected Manchester City to win with ease, but Southampton put up a credible and plucky fight. In the end though, it was City who took home all the points in dramatic fashion in their home opener.
Carlos Tevez opened the scoring after a well-timed lobbed through pass from Samir Nasri, but Rickie Lambert and Steven Davis capitalized on some sloppy City defense to turn the game on its head.
City would have the last laugh though, as Edin Dzeko finally finished one of the many chances created for him in the game, and Nasri capped a terrific overall performance with a winning goal.
Do City deserve credit for an incredible comeback, or criticism for allowing lowly Southampton to almost beat them at home? How did young Jack Rodwell perform on his debut for Manchester City?
We'll discuss that and more in the coming slides.
