Welcome to our preview for the Premier League fixture between Southampton and Manchester City at St. Mary’s. The away side are one of the most fancied club to win the Premier League this season, and are the bookies’ favourites. Their home form has been devastating, but their away results have prevented City from seriously challenging Arsenal at the top of the table thus far. Southampton meanwhile are in the middle of a run of defeats after some tricky fixtures, but their start to the season has been nevertheless more than acceptable.

Team and Selection News

City welcomed back Vincent Kompany to the centre of their defence for the previous fixture against West Brom, and will be at full strength for this fixture, aside from David Silva, who is still out injured. With points at a premium for City ahead of the visit of Arsenal, the away side will not take any chances with resting players, particularly as they are six point behind the Gunners in the table. Southampton have had a few disappointing defeats recently, but are not playing too badly despite these results, and will probably stick to the core of their previously successful team. Fonte and Cork are pushing for recalls, though.
