Preview

Pep Guardiola’s men came back down to earth over the weekend. They now will be looking for an immediate response after defeat in the Manchester Derby brought an end to the 21-game winning run and 28-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.

In solace, City still remain 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League, and will have a great opportunity here to bounce back almost immediately after a tough loss. No rest for the elite.

Southampton will come into the game hoping to build on Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Sheffield United.

Goals from James Ward-Prowse and Che Adams earned the Saints their first win in nine Premier League matches.

Which team will come out in front?
