PEP GUARDIOLA PREVIEW

Asked what he expects from Southampton, the manager said: “The same, a brave team. So aggressive and well organised. It doesn't matter what happened in last games, they have a culture that I like a lot without the ball. We need to create a good rhythm. It’s important fixture for us and we want to get another three points.

“We don't have time to be distracted, today we prepare and then we play. Then we travel again and play another one. The players and backroom staff are just focused on what we have to do.

Previous meeting

City’s remarkable goalscoring run came to an end after being held to a goalless draw against Southampton at the Etihad in September 2021.

Guardiola’s side came into the game having scored 17 goals in our previous four outings, but were frustrated by the Saints’ spirited performance.

Raheem Sterling thought he had scored a 90th minute winner when he reacted quickest to turn in the rebound after substitute Phil Foden’s header was saved, but City’s joy proved short lived as the video check agreed the assistant referee had correctly flagged for offside.

Last time out

City emerged 6-3 victors in the 188th Manchester derby last weekend, whilst Southampton fell to a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Everton.

Form guide

We sit in second place in the Premier League with six wins and two draws after eight league matches, whilst the Saints linger just one point above the relegation zone, with two wins, one draw and five losses.
