'Glad the door opened for me! ' - Walker delighted with his rare Manchester City goal

The right-back scored just his third goal for the club as they overcame a determined opponent, but said the scorer didn't matter as long as they won

Manchester City’s game-winner Kyle Walker said his rare goal felt great, but the fact it secured three Premier League points in a come from behind 2-1 win against Southampton was more important.

Walker also assisted Sergio Aguero’s equalising goal against a Saints side that had been walloped 9-0 by Leicester City in their last game.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men showed more spirit in today’s match with the defending Premier League champions, and nearly held on to the advantage James Ward-Prowse gave them after an Ederson mistake.
