Manchester City vs. Southampton Team News:

Southampton return to action following two consecutive 0-0 draws against AFC Bournemouth and Newcastle United. Saints have now failed to score in their last five consecutive Premier League matches - their worst run since 2001.

They haven’t ever went six games without a goal - and that could change on Sunday afternoon.

Next up for Mark Hughes’ Saints is Manchester City, last year’s Premier League champions and current table-toppers. Once upon a time, Hughes was Man City’s manager, something which seems a tad weird now...

Southampton have a fully-fit squad at their disposal after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s return from an illness.

City will be missing talismanic midfield playmaker Kevin de Bruyne, who picked up another knee injury midweek in a Carabao Cup tie against Fulham. Nicolas Otamendi is also expected to miss out through injury, though Ilkay Gundogan could be available.
