Manchester City are winless in four games after a flawless start to the season under Pep Guardiola. With two of those results in the Champions League, City remain close to the top and a draw or better today would be enough to take first place back from Arsenal. Today, the Blues host Southampton at the Etihad Stadium and look to get back to winning ways, but Claude Puel’s side are in opposite form, having not lost in the last four league fixtures.
Mark Clattenburg is in charge of today’s fixture, his first City assignment since the 2-1 win at Old Trafford last month.
With both teams having played in Europe during the week, Pep and Puel have made changes to their lineups, naming these teams:
City XI: Bravo, Stones, Kompany, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling, Sane, Aguero
Southampton XI: Forster, Martina, Van Dijk, Fonte, McQueen, Romeu, Davis, Clasie, Tadic, Redmond, Austin
Today’s match can be viewed on Sky Sports 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
