Manchester City kept the destiny of the Premier League title in its hands by beating Southampton 4-1 on Saturday, with the visitors’ defeat further marred by a serious-looking injury to England striker Jay Rodriguez.

Yaya Toure set City on its way with a third-minute penalty at Etihad Stadium before Rickie Lambert equalized with a spot kick of his own in the 37th.

Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko both scored in first-half injury time for City, which added an 81st-minute fourth goal through Stevan Jovetic to gain three points that put the team a point behind leader Liverpool having played a game less.

A tearful Rodriguez was carried off on a stretcher with a knee injury midway through the first half, having landed badly as he jumped to control the ball.
