Manchester City vs Southampton: City fan opinion ahead of Saints visit

Manchester City vs Southampton team news

Southampton make the long trip up to Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium this afternoon to take on last season’s Premier League champions.

There’s a mixed bag of team news for both Ralph Hasenhuttl and Pep Guardiola for this fixture.

For Saints, Stuart Armstrong and Theo Walcott are confirmed to miss out as they continue to rehabilitate from their respective muscle injuries.

However, Shane Long is back in contention to make the matchday squad after he recovered from his positive test for COVID-19 while on international duty for the Republic of Ireland.

Will Smallbone is also back in training following his knee injury, though it’s thought he’s a long way off from featuring in first team football at this moment.

For Guardiola’s City, both Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden got minutes against RB Leipzig in their midweek Champions League win. It’s thought that both attack-minded midfielders will feature against Southampton on Saturday.

However, it’s unclear whether central defenders Aymeric Laporte and John Stones will be fit or not to play Saints.

Manchester City vs Southampton pre-match stats


  • Manchester City have won eight of the past nine Premier League meetings, with the exception a 1-0 defeat at St Mary’s in July 2020.
  • Southampton have gone 10 league games without a win away to City, losing nine of those fixtures.
  • Their most recent victory at the Etihad Stadium was in April 2004, when Kevin Phillips scored twice in a 3-1 win.

Manchester City

  • Manchester City lost their opening league game of the season but have won their subsequent three top-flight matches, scoring 11 goals without reply.
  • City could become the third team in top-flight history to win four consecutive home games by at least a five-goal margin, emulating Aston Villa in 1899 and Everton in 1931.
  • They have scored 21 goals in their past four home matches in all competitions, with 13 different players on target for City and two opposition players also scoring own goals.
  • None of City’s last 47 league and cup matches has ended in a draw (W39, L8). They last drew against West Brom on 15 December.
  • Pep Guardiola has named the same starting line-up in three consecutive top-flight fixtures for the first time in his managerial career.
  • Raheem Sterling could make his 200th Premier League appearance for City. He is three shy of 100 Premier League career goals, including 18 for Liverpool.
  • Sterling has been directly involved in 11 top-flight goals against Southampton, scoring seven and assisting four.


  • Saints are winless in six Premier League games, drawing each of the last three (D3, L3).
  • They have not drawn four successive top-flight matches since March 2002.
  • The last time Southampton failed to win any of their opening four league fixtures, in 2016, they recovered to end the season eighth.
  • They have not begun a top-flight campaign with a five-game winless streak since 2000.
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side ended a run of 14 league fixtures without a clean sheet in last weekend’s 0-0 draw with West Ham.
  • Southampton have won just two of 44 top-flight matches away to the reigning champions (D10, L32), beating Leeds 3-1 in 1970 and Chelsea by the same scoreline in 2015.
