Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl revealed that Jack Grealish confronted Oriol Romeu in the tunnel after Manchester City’s 1-1 draw on Saturday.

The Premier League leaders were held to a point at St Mary’s as Kyle Walker-Peters’ opener for Southampton was cancelled out by Aymeric Laporte’s header in the 65th-minute.

Grealish, meanwhile, was furious with Romeu following a challenge in the second half.

The pair had to be separated after Grealish pushed Romeu and the City midfielder was keen to have the final say after the full-time whistle.

‘They had a discussion with Ori, because Grealish was waiting for him in the tunnel because of a few things that happened outside on the pitch that was not right,’ Hasenhuttl said after the match.

‘But it’s not here for the cameras, they spoke about it, everything’s good.’

The draw puts City 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League but Guardiola is adamant that his side should not already be declared title winners.

‘I don’t need a good result, even today if we had won the game the title race will not be over,’ said Guardiola.

‘In January no one is champions. There are many games, many tough games like today and that’s all.

‘Today we played to play good and defend our badge and our people as best as possible and the title will always be a consequence of what we have done.

‘Today was really good.’
