Kompany ends 20-month City goal drought in Southampton win

The visitors struggled to find a way through during an uneventful first half, but goals from Vincent Kompany, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero after the interval fired City up to third place. All of us are proud and our fans are happy.

Sergio Aguero threatened twice in the opening few minutes as City started at pace, first volleying a hard half-chance wide from Kevin De Bruyne's pass and then turning his defender and sending a low, angled shot spinning wide.

Vincent Kompany says he is relying on his experience and what he picks up in training to get him through his various Manchester City comebacks.

The opening goal arrived 55 minutes in thanks to returning skipper Kompany, who climbed higher than Maya Yoshida to head home his first top-flight goal in 20 months.

North Korea attempts but fails to launch missile: South Korea
China urged all sides to back down on Friday, warning that a war on the Korean Peninsula would have devastating consequences. China has spoken out against North Korea's missile and nuclear tests and has supported United Nations sanctions.

The Mirror claim that the Belgian is a shock target for Everton and West Ham ahead of next season, and that they lead the way to sign Kompany ahead of a host of other clubs.

Kompany proved he is back to full fitness following an injury-hit season with a goal and a typically commanding display at Southampton on Saturday. This was a big result as there are four teams fighting for the last two places for the Champions League. Shane Long, 28, will be a threat to Manchester City while Nathan Ward, 23, is emerging as a real talent for his team.

Less than three minutes later it was 3-0, De Bruyne crossing for Sergio Aguero to head in.

"The most important thing for us is to keep the good feeling between ourselves; then we can go up against this team". Where I am at physically does not matter. We gave them opportunities.

Russian Federation presses for Syria chemical attack investigation
Rycroft said "samples obtained from Khan Sheikhun " have "tested positive for the nerve agent sarin or a sarin-like substance". Syria joined the OPCW in 2013 under severe worldwide pressure following a deadly chemical attack on a Damascus suburb.

A stellar second half performance saw Manchester City grab all three points against Southampton at the St. Mary's stadium.

Aguero rose between two Saints defenders to nod in a looping far-post cross from De Bruyne, the Argentine making it 11 goals in his last 11 games and five in as many Premier League appearances.

For now, City's focus is on attempting to ensure that they will be participating in the Champions League next season - they are third in the Premier League table.

Pence lands in South Korea after North's failed launch
China has opposed the North's nuclear tests and missile launches as such attempts could provoke military clashes. Vice President Mike Pence landed in South Korea for talks on the North's increasingly defiant arms programme.
