Stubborn Saints could prove awkward for City
The stats point to a City win, but Southampton could prove awkward opponents for Pep Guardiola’s title favourites.
Soton, who drew this fixture 1-1 last season, have been buoyed by thrashing Everton 4-1 and have given little away defensively for the past few campaigns.
Huddersfield demonstrated with a work ethic and organisation (plus a David Silva off-day) that it’s possible to thwart Manchester City.
Southampton will have to ride their luck but they have outplayed Manchester United this season and could also give City a game.
