Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy caught the eye once again on Wednesday night when celebrating Raheem Sterling’s last minute winner against Southampton, despite recovering from a ruptured cruciate ligament injury.

City maintained their eight point lead at the top of the Premier League by beating the Saints, with Sterling netting a stunning winner in stoppage time. It is the second game in which the England star has proven decisive, after he scored at Huddersfield on Sunday.
