December 1, 2018 Manchester City's Raheem Sterling celebrates scoring their second goal with Fernandinho.

"In the second half one action from Raheem Sterling changed the game".

Trailing 2-0 after 20 minutes against a team without a win in three months, United recovered to draw 2-2 for a result that leaves Jose Mourinho's side 16 points off the lead in the English Premier League after just 14 games.

At least one of their close contenders will lose ground with Arsenal and Tottenham meeting in the North London derby, although Guardiola said they should expect second-placed Liverpool to beat city rivals Everton. I know when I did it I was not happy to have done it. "Definitely - I've said many times we are delighted but he can do better".

The England winger's ninth goal of the season owed more to opportunism than ingenuity, however, as Begovic clumsily spilt Danilo's shot for him to find the roof of the net.

"It is another reality how the people attack our team, it's completely different here for the way they play".

Stuart Armstrong drove home an angled finish for Southampton's opening goal in the 13th, and Cedric Soares curled a free kick into the top corner for 2-0.

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.


Romelu Lukaku gave United a lifeline when he slotted home from Rashford's pass in the 33rd minute as the Belgian striker grabbed his first goal in 13 games.

Roy Hodgson's team finally ended their drought from open play in freakish fashion when James McArthur's 16th minute cross was missed by players from both teams, hit the far post and trickled into the net.

Yet from what seemed a position of control, City uncharacteristically switched off in the latter stages of the first half, allowing Bournemouth back into the game.

Leicester City climbed to seventh in the table after James Maddison scored a fine individual effort to add to Jamie Vardy's opener from the spot in a 2-0 victory over Watford, who had Etienne Capoue sent off.
