Second-half goals from Yaya Toure, Frank Lampard and Gael Clichy gave 10-man Manchester City a 3-0 victory against Southampton in the Premier League at St. Mary's on Sunday.

After a goalless first half, Sergio Aguero teed up Toure, who drilled low past Fraser Forster in the 51st minute.

City was reduced to 10 men in the 74th when Eliaquim Mangala was sent off for a second bookable offence for barging over Shane Long.

But Southampton had little time to put pressure on City with an extra man before Frank Lampard scored in the 80th.

Southampton continued to attack, but City struck again on the counter to make the game safe.

Aguero raced down the left and threaded the ball across to Clichy, who converted from close range in the 88th.
