Manchester City’s morale is on a high after their brilliant late win against European giants, Bayern Munich in the Champions league during the midweek. Their Premier League form though, has been far from consistent and have been lackusture, shuttling between the flamboyant and mediocre. City needs to do a lot more than just sit back after a lead, which they have been culpable of doing this season and need to impose their authority, like they did last season.

Southampton are no easy opponents it is no fluke that they are second in the table. They are fluent in their play and new coach Ronald Koeman has instilled a brilliant new philosophy in their vibrant, new team.
