Manchester City VS Southampton
Wednesday (29/11/2017)
21:00 (WAT)
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City must face the pressure of being Premier League champions-elect as they host Southampton on Wednesday.

A late 2-1 win at Huddersfield on Sunday saw City restore their eight-point advantage over Manchester United at the top of the table after just 13 games.

The manner of City's celebrations in Huddersfield suggested Guardiola and his players knew what a key win it could be in the context of the title race, and many pundits have already declared that they are uncatchable this season.

Southampton have been far from their best so far this term, but a morale-boosting 4-1 win over Everton on Sunday will send Mauricio Pellegrino's Saints to the Etihad Stadium on a high.


Team news
John Stones is out for six weeks with a hamstring injury, joining long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy on the sidelines.

Predicted line-ups

Man City starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Kompany, Delph, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Silva, Sane, Jesus, Sterling

Southampton starting XI: Forster, Soares, Van Dijk, Hoedt, Bertrand, Davis, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Boufal, Austin​
