City are ninth in the Premier League, with 20 points from 12 games and eight points behind leaders Liverpool, who have played one game more.
City do hold a seven-match unbeaten run in all competitions and, during that period, have conceded just one goal.
The Saints sit third in the Premier League table, four points behind leaders Liverpool. They drew 1-1 with Arsenal on Wednesday evening.
It should be a great match between two great managers. The difference could be in the attack as City’s finishing has been questionable. Something will have to give.
Pep Guardiola will have one player questionable, Sergio Aguero.
Southampton will face no injury issues and will ave all players available.
Manchester City 3-2 Southampton
