Non stop work for the lads as they play 2 games a week until 2nd January 2018 and This Wednesday at 8.00pm we entertain at the Etihad Stadium, Southampton Football Club.

Hot from a battle of the Roses game with Huddersfield and another record broken.
The best start to a Premier League season by any Premier League club - and the first time we've won in the Premier League, having been behind at half-time, since April 1995!

Southampton FC - 'The Saints'
They became a professional club in 1891 and co-founded the Southern Football League in 1894, and currently hold a place in the lower regions of the Premier League, having won just 1 away game scoring a total of 3 goals in their 5 away matches.

Player Connections to Manchester City
Mick Channon, Phil, Boyer, Graham Baker, Kevin Bond, Egil Ostenstad, Wayne Bridge, Bradley Wright Phillips and Alan Ball (as Manager)

Overall Head to Head
P86 W30 L31 D25

League Head to Head

P78 W28 L27 D23

Famous Players

Matt Le Tissier (some magical moments, I think only ever missed 1 penalty in his career at the Club)

Terry Paine 824 appearances for 'The Saints'


Famous people who support Southampton
Will Champion
Craig David
Chris Packham
Lucy Pinder

Apart from Chris Packham, I had to Google them too.

Players to watch
Charlie Austin, when fit is dangerous if given a free header.

Nathan Redmond - Played for England in all the age groups and has some talent if he continues to improve he may well find him being snatched by the bigger clubs, who no doubt are already scouting this young player)

Virgil van Djyk - On his day can be excellent in his role as Centre Back, but his head has been turned by Liverpool, with the player himself mentioning that he had spoken the the Liverpool Football Club about a transfer and reported that it was his preferred destination, because of this the transfer did not take place with Liverpool apologising to Southampton, but I think eventually he will end up there.


City News.

Out : - Benjamin Mendy
John Stones

No injury worries from the Huddersfield Town game, but having to play every three days, changes will be inevitable, As Vincent Kompany says Winter has come and its colder and the ball moves slower, can City add yet another win to the tally, we will know soon enough at about 1.00pm on Wednesday night.

Buzz's picks

Ederson
Walker Otamendi Mangala, Danilo
Fernandinho
Bernardo, KDB, Sané Sterling Silva
Jesus.

Referee: Paul Tierney
Assistants: Adrian Holmes, Mick McDonough
Fourth official: Bobby Madley

prediction City win and could be another goal fest.

although Pep may opt for two Strikers if Southampton adopt a flat back 10.

I watched the Southampton game against Everton and they will be very confident after dismantling an admittedly struggling side. They've got Charlie Austin fit and firing again.
Pep does not take the lower teams lightly though so I think it will be a similar approach on Wednesday as we witnessed yesterday.

A lot of people think because of the heavy load in December and in to January they are hopeful we will drop points, surely it is the same for everyone and they too will drop points, I cannot believe it will be just City to struggle (if in fact they do, our rivals have their fingers crossed)

Very much wishful thinking on my part but it's not inconceivable that, if we we beat Southampton and West Ham at home and the rags come unstuck (Watford and Arsenal, both away), we could be 14 points ahead by the end of the weekend.

It's not all over until the over indulgent in the cream bun section female gets up to wobble her tonsils on stage at the Opera, play each game as it comes and don't rely on others making mistakes, because bigger gaps than this have be blown apart.

The one that matters is the Derby on 10th December now that really is a six pointer game.

I've noticed that Southampton's next game after us is a fierce local derby with Bournemouth. They may well have one eye on that fixture.

Great preview, Buzz.

"Mauricio Pellegrino's Southampton are an oddball mid-table side. Their typically attritional draws and narrow defeats exemplify the turgidity that prevails in a lot of Premier League fixtures. Three odd goal wins by the end of October are nothing to write home about and they will come into this one having this month faced uncompromising Burnley then the two unpredictable MerseySlide teams. City to win handsomely."

- I wrote that at the end of October and the 3 games they have played so far this month have continued their erratic pattern. The more hopeful anti-City hacks and pundits are talking up Saints beating of a lost at sea Everton, but defeats to Burnley and Liverpool are the greater yardstick. I'm still running with a 4-0.

Thanks JB, Yes the win over Everton is nothing to go by, but I don't believe they will come and attack a point is a result for them.

Bon soir Planet Blue!

We have Blues in the tunnel club tonight, and I'll be relaying any info from them as the night progresses.

Preparing my December preview earlier, I realised what a daunting task the month presents us with, the bottom line being 9 games with 6 anti-social away trips inside 29 days.

The home games tonight and on Sunday are absolutely crucial in providing a springboard into that run.

Come On City!!!

I think it is the same for the Clubs involved in Europe, but everyone expects us to drop points and not them.

Come on City!!!!!!

Was Sané on verge of missing the next game if he got a yellow?

Good question Buzzer.

Cautious rotation essential now. Spanish Dave's ankles rested.

Just checked JB Sané and Kompany on 3 apiece, which means that Sané can play v West Ham and get a yellow and not miss the Derby
