Southampton vs Man City: Team news

Southampton are dealing with a number of injury concerns ahead of City's visit, but Moussa Djenepo and Jack Stephens are available.

Saints duo Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sofiane Boufal are unlikely to feature after missing last weekend's win at Watford, while Nathan Tella and Yan Valery are doubts.

Jannik Vestergaard is struggling with a muscle problem but fellow centre-back Stephens is back from a one-game ban. Djenepo can play for the first time since play resumed having served a three-match suspension.

For City, Fernandinho will be available again after suspension.

The Brazilian midfielder, who has spent most of the season playing in defence, has served a two-match ban for his sending off in the loss at Chelsea last week.

With Leroy Sane having now left for Bayern Munich, top scorer Sergio Aguero is the only major absentee with a knee injury.

Southampton provisional squad: McCarthy, Gunn, Lewis, Walker-Peters, Valery, Vestergaard, Stephens, Bednarek, Danso, Bertrand, Vokins, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Smallbone, Jankewitz, Djepeno, Redmond, Tella, Long, Ings, Adams, Obafemi.

Manchester City provisional squad: Ederson, Bravo, Walker, Cancelo, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Fernandinho, Garcia, Harwood-Bellis, Mendy, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne, D Silva, B Silva, Sterling, Foden, Mahrez, Doyle, Jesus.

Southampton vs Man City: Match stats

Southampton have lost each of their last six Premier League meetings with Manchester City - they've never lost seven in a row against an opponent in the competition.

Manchester City have won 10 of their last 12 Premier League meetings with Southampton (D1 L1), including each of the last six in a row by an aggregate score of 17-4.

Southampton have lost 10 Premier League home games this season - they've never lost more at home in any of their previous 92 campaigns in their league history (also 10 in 1993-94).

Manchester City haven't lost three consecutive away league games since a run of four in April 2015 under Manuel Pellegrini. Manager Pep Guardiola has never lost three consecutive away league games before in his managerial career.

None of Southampton's last 12 Premier League games have ended level, with Saints winning six and losing six. Just four of Southampton's Premier League games have ended level this season, the fewest of any side outside the top two.

Manchester City's 4-0 win over Liverpool was their 25th Premier League win by four or more goals since Pep Guardiola took charge in 2016-17 - seven more than any other club in that time.

Since his Premier League debut for Manchester City in September 2015, Kevin De Bruyne has created more chances (432) and assisted more goals (62) than any other player. He has registered 17 Premier League assists this season, just one shy of his season's best of 18 in 2016-17.

Southampton's Danny Ings has scored the opening goal in eight different Premier League games this season, more than any other player.

Manchester City's Phil Foden has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 17 appearances in all competitions (6 goals, 8 assists), despite only starting 10 of those games. Among Englishmen in the Premier League, only Trent Alexander-Arnold (14) and Bukayo Saka (11) have more assists in all competitions this season than Foden (9).

Against Watford, Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse scored his sixth direct free-kick in the Premier League for the Saints - only Matt Le Tissier has scored more in the Premier League for Southampton (7).

Southampton and Manchester City go head-to-head in the Premier League on Sunday evening.
