Manchester City and Pep Guardiola’s mettle is really being tested at the moment. They were completely humbled at the Camp Nou in midweek as a Lionel Messi hat trick helped Barcelona to a 4–0 thrashing, aided also by Claudio Bravo’s ridiculous choice to handle the ball outside his box and get sent off for it. Sergio Aguero was handed an unexpected place on the bench for Wednesday’s match, which was a very odd decision indeed considering his form this season.Raheem Sterling has been on fire though. The flying winger has bagged four goals at home this season and will be looking forward to taking advantage of Southampton’s injury crisis in the full back position. As regards City’s team news update, Bacary Sagna is definitely out, while Pablo Zabaleta and Fabian Delph are two major doubts for this fixture.
On the other hand, the Saints endured their own frustration on Thursday as they were in total control against Italian side Inter Milan on the road at the San Siro, only to lose the match 1–0. This will be a hard defeat for head coach Claude Puel and his team to take considering their decent performance, but they are still in a good vein of form. They have won five of their last eight in all tournaments, and the the loss to Inter ended a seven match undefeated spell. Away from home they have only won one of their six matches this season though, and they’ve failed to score in four of them. As for the visiting team injury news, full-backs trio Cedric Soares, Ryan Bertrand, and Matt Targett all sidelined for this fixture, as well as the strikers Shane Long and Jeremy Pied. The good news, though, is that Nathan Redmond is expected to shake off a knock in time.
