    Premier League Preview: Southampton v Man City

    Sergio AgueroA wonder strike from Fabian Delph denied Southampton a point against Aston Villa on Wednesday so The Saints will be hoping to avoid another loss when they face Manchester City at St Marys this weekend.

    Mario Pochettino’s side have not lost four Premier League games in a row since their first four games of last season, while Manchester City are chasing their second consecutive away win in the league since January.

    A key player will be Steven Davis, who completed 112 passes of his 129 attempts against Aston Villa, both Premier League highs. He also scored in both meetings with Man City last season so if any player is going to help change Southampton’s current form it will be Davis.

    Defensively Southampton have been solid this year but against Villa they conceded more goals (3) than they had in all six previous home matches this year. And if Southampton have been defensively sound, then Man City have been the attacking side of this year scoring 40 goals in total, 10 more than any other side.

    One of the key attacking weapons for City has been Sergio Aguero who has notched up 10 goals in his last nine Premier League appearances and has three assists under his belt. If Southampton are to take the win at St Marys, nullifying the threat of Aguero is essential.

    Southampton have not lost four Barclays Premier Leagues in a row since their first four games of last season.

    Man City are looking to win consecutive Barclays Premier League away games for the first time since January.

    Steven Davis scored in both Barclays Premier League meetings with Manchester City last season.

    Davis attempted 129 passes and completed 112 in the midweek game against Aston Villa, both Premier League-highs this season.

    Bosnian striker Eden Dzeko found the net in both clashes with the Saints in 2012/13.

    Southampton conceded more goals in midweek versus Aston Villa (three) than they had in all six previous home league games this season combined (two).

    The Saints have lost three successive Premier League games for the first time under Mauricio Pochettino.

    Yaya Toure has as many league goals (7) as he managed in the whole of last season and one more than he scored in Man City’s title winning season of 2011-12 (6).

    Manchester City have scored 40 goals so far this season, 10 more than any other team.

    The Citizens, unsurprisingly, have the best shot conversion rate in the division (21.4%).

    Sergio Aguero has scored 10 goals in his last nine Premier League appearances for Manchester City, as well as three assists.
