Manchester City vs Southampton (Premier League)

This Wednesday, it is up to the Saints to challenge the leading English championship leader in their stronghold. Manchester City have just set a new record for their best start in the Premier League, only conceding points to Everton after the second round. The Cityzens were losing at the home of the Terriers but turned around, showing features and the little bit of luck that smiles at the champions. Southampton arrive excited by the triumph of the weekend, which interrupted succession of defeats.

At this moment Manchester City is clearly the target to shoot down in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s team has just set a new record for the best ever start in the competition, adding up to thirty-seven points on the thirteenth round. Just once, in the second match of the league, in the reception to Everton (1-1), the Cityzens yielded points. It counts on victories the remaining meetings of the championship. In fact, since then, City only slipped again on 24 October, in all competitions, at the null with the Wolves (0-0, 4-1) that forced the decision on penalties. He is one hundred percent victorious also in the group stage of the Millionaire League.

On Sunday City had to close ranks to keep the record flawless. Huddersfield’s (1-2), windy and drenched terrain, coupled with the striking character of David Wagner’s formation, was already anticipated to strip the visitors’ most virtuoso style of play. United’s mishap at John Smith served as a warning. To lose to the interval due to a misfortune of Otamendi, who introduced the ball in the own goal, the Manchester City had to insist and to show patience to give back to the result. It helped that Aguero had the chance to equalize a penalty in the second minute of the second half. But the turnaround had to wait until she was eighty-four, when Raheem Sterling was literally in the right place at the right time.

Guardiola will want to play some more used players and this squad is not a sin in alternatives. It will always be wise to spare Vicente Kompany to a second game of ninety minutes and even with injured John Stones, and even so Mangala may have his chance. Kevin de Bruyne also looked a bit worn on the weekend and may be one of those who sits this time around. Bernardo Silva almost certainly will have honors of holder, this time, the same happening with Gabriel Jesus who did not enter in the last two commitments.

In addition to the defense already mentioned the only other unavailable for injury is Benjamim Mendy.

Over the weekend the SouthamPremier Leaguepton returned to winning ways to host Everton (4-1). Dusan Tadic, Charlie Austin in double dose and Steven Davis were the service mark; Sigurdsson made the Toffees the goal of honor. It was a very important result for the Saints, who came from two straight defeats – Burnley (0-1) and Liverpool (3-0) – and three days in which they had only added one point.

The formation to the orders of Mauricio Pellegrino is in the tenth place of the table, with the same points that Brighton & Hove Albion, six points above the zone of descent. Jérémy Pied and Matt Targett are the casualties for physical reasons. Oriol Romeu returns to his option after fulfilling punishment.
