The 6 goals scored against Leipzig in the Champions League match say a lot about the strength of Manchester City this season.
The latest reinforcement, Grealish, is slowly adapting to new teammates.
The defeat at the start of the Premier League against Tottenham was almost neutralized, with 3 wins in the next 3 games played.
Southampton is still without a win since the start of the Premier League. The Saints played 3 draws and lost once. Overall, their games doesn’t look bad, the draw against Manchester United showed good sides, and the defeat by Everton was the bad one too.
Southampton has nothing to lose in this match, although we expect a partially defensive formation.
