Southampton recorded a surprising 1-0 win against Manchester City's dominant team at St Mary & # 39; s in the Premier League game on Sunday.
The defeat means that city chief Pep Guardiola lost three consecutive out-of-league games for the first time in his administrative career.
Before Sunday's defeat at St. Mary & # 39; s, City lost 2-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford and 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
City tried 26 shots without scoring against Southampton, the maximum they have ever done in a league match without scoring under Guardiola.
They dominated possession, total shots and kicks on the target, as well as passes, but were unable to enter the scoresheet.
Despite being on the back foot since the start of the game, Che Adams opened the scoring in the 16th minute, after pushing Ederson 40 meters out.
City remain in second with 66 points, while Southampton are in 12th position with 43 points in the leaderboard.
Earlier on Sunday, the newly crowned champion Liverpool recovered from their attack on City by winning 2-0 against Aston Villa at Anfield.
Villa is currently in the relegation zone in 18th position, with 27 points.
