Almost a year on from the date they lost 4-2 on the south coast, Manchester City return to Southampton looking to get their first win over the Saints since 2015.

It’s been a mixed season for Claude Puel’s side in the Frenchman’s first foray into Premier League football, an up and down season and early exit from Europe has been balance by the club’s first appearance in a major final since 2003, although they lost to Manchester United in the League Cup final.
