Preview

City and Crystal Palace fought out a goalless draw in an action-packed Premier League clash at Selhurst Park.

The saints meanwhile, are off a loss vs Watford. Though they lost, they have cost City before and are one of the more difficult matches for Pep’s side.

It should be a very interesting match.

Team News

For Man City, only Cole Palmer is out Ruben Dias is questionable.

The Saints have McCarthy, Broja, Lyanco and Tella are out.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-1 Southampton
