Man City team news

Two of City's England internationals are under threat of missing the World Cup this winter. Kalvin Phillips underwent successful shoulder surgery last month and is optimistic about a swift recovery. However, Kyle Walker is a significant doubt with an abdominal problem.

John Stones pulled up with a hamstring injury while on international duty in September but is expected back in the next fortnight. Aymeric Laporte made his first start of the season in midweek and Rodri returned to the bench after sitting out the Manchester derby.

Pep Guardiola had the luxury of resting Erling Haaland for the second half of their Champions League saunter, limiting his Nordic goal-gobbler to just a brace.

Man City Starting 11 (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Akanji, Ake, Gomez; De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva; Foden, Haaland, Grealish.

Southampton team news

Ralph Hasenhuttl can't point towards an overwhelming glut of injuries to explain his side's struggles this term. Tino Livramento is targeting January for his return from an ACL injury. Romeo Lavia is on a more immediate timescale but isn't expected to be back from a thigh injury until mid-October.

Man City vs Southampton score prediction

Southampton were one of just four teams that Manchester City failed to defeat in the Premier League last season. However, Guardiola's side romped to victory in the FA Cup during their most recent head-to-head with the Saints and come into the contest in merciless form, especially at home.

In City's six matches across all competitions at the Etihad this season, the reigning Premier League champions have scored a sickening 27 goals, averaging 4.5 per game. Up against a side on the slide, City are heavy favourites to extend their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Prediction: Man City 4-0 Southampton
