Third place Manchester City visit Southampton on Saturday (5.30pm kick-off) hoping to consolidate their position inside the Premier League’s top four.
Pep Guardiola’s men beat struggling Hull City 3-1 last time out to remain four points clear of fifth place Manchester United, and although Jose Mourinho’s side have a game in hand on their neighbours, the Citizens will look to keep putting points on the board and thus keep the pressure on the Red Devils.
