Manchester City team news and predicted XI vs Southampton

Pep Guardiola’s champions come into the weekend still behind Arsenal in the race to the 2022-23 Premier League title, but a date with bottom-dwellers Southampton could give them another three points in the bag

Manchester City Team News

  • Out: Phil Foden
  • Doubt: Erling Haaland

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will remain confident about the run-in to the final day of the 2022-23 Premier League season after the holding champions thrashed Liverpool 4-1 in their last fixture, and will certainly look at their weekend clash with Southampton as a result that must yield three points if they are to stand a chance of catching Arsenal.

Pep will still be without England starlet Phil Foden, however, who remains ruled out after having his appendix removed and is set to miss the majority of the rest of the season. Erling Haaland will also face a late assessment but Argentine international Julián Álvarez will likely lead the line even if he does pass fit.
