Man City vs Southampton preview
Pep Guardiola’s side are continuing to run away with the Premier League title, having taken a record number of points from their opening 13 fixtures.
The latest side to have felt City’s wrath was Huddersfield, who despite putting up a resilient fight, succumbed to the inevitable.
Goals from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling helped to restore City’s 8 point lead at the top.
Southampton, meanwhile, struck form of their own as they put four past a fragile Everton side.
It was a much-needed win for Mauricio Pellegrino who is still trying to find his feet as manager in the Premier League.
Man City: Unstoppable
Right now, it is impossible to say when Manchester City will drop points, such has been their dominance in the opening stages of the new campaign.
No team has ever picked up 37 points after 13 Premier League games and Guardiola’s side look capable of continuing to set unpredicted records.
In all areas, this Manchester City side looks scintillating, making it near impossible to find a weakness.
The Spanish tactician has an array of incredible talent to select from each week, even with key player, like John Stones missing games.
Pellegrino faces by far the toughest task of his time in England, as he prepares to gear his side up to face a team who have netted 24 times in six games at home.
Southampton: Charlie Austin back scoring?
Austin netted twice on his return to the Saints’ starting eleven.
He condemned an Everton side, already in turmoil, to yet another defeat.
The forward had been yet to start this season, but following an impressive display on Sunday, he is in line to start again on Wednesday.
If ever the Saints needed a goal scorer, it is now, as they face the daunting task of trying to outscore Man City.
