Southampton vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
True, Southampton walked on the edge of the danger zone in previous years, but Ralph Hasenhuttl always found a way to rescue his team from the crisis and bring them a carefree survival. However, The Saints are playing criminally badly this season, they showed the least of all the teams, and it is no wonder that they are nailed to the bottom of the table with 23 points won. The club from Hampshire still hopes for survival because Nottingham Forest, which is the first above the relegation zone, is running away from them by only four points. Sekou Mara is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Juan Larios (Unknown Injury), Armel Bella-Kotchap (Shoulder Injury), Tino Livramento (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), and Kyle Walker-Peters (Hamstring Injury) won’t be able to feature for Southampton coach Rubén Sellés.
Meanwhile, Manchester City was dominant in the domestic championship for the last couple of years, as shown by the four titles won in the previous five editions of the Premier League. However, The Citizens will not have an easy task of defending the title this season because they have received a serious competitor for the title in the form of Arsenal. Coach Pep Guardiola’s team managed to grab 64 points, which leaves them in the second position in the table, so the current champions are behind the aforementioned leader by as many as eight steps but with a match less. Phil Foden shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Jack Grealish is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Due to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this game.
