    PREMIER LEAGUE LIVE! MAN CITY V SOUTHAMPTON

    Probable Lineups:

    Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Y Touré, Fernandinho, Nasri, Silva, Navas, Dzeko Manchester City’s four-game-winning streak came to and end when Arsenal held them to a 1-1 draw at the Emirates last weekend. However, the Sky Blues are still tipped to win the title at the end of the season, but will need to get the three points over an in-form Southampton at the Etihad this weekend. Apart from the injury to Sergio Aguero, Pellegrini has a fully fit squad at his disposal, with Edin Dzeko likely to lead the line over Alvaro Negredo or Stevan Jovetic. Southampton (4-2-3-1): Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw, Ward-Prowse, Cork, Lallana, Ramirez, Rodriguez, Lambert Southampton go into the game at the Etihad in the best spirits, coming off the back of an emphatic 4-0 win over Newcastle at St. Mary’s.  The win allowed the Saints to leapfrog the Magpies and are now in with an outside chance of a Europa League spot next season, but will need to catch Manchester United who are six points ahead. The ‘English Trident’ of Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez, and Ricky Lambert should all start in this fixture. Victor Wanyama is still a doubt, so youngster James Ward-Prowse will continue to deputize in his absence.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Pablo Osvaldo scores an absolutly ridiculous solo goal against Manchester City earlier this year. Pure class.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    edin dzeko

    Manchester City know that if they win every game, the Premier League title is theirs. So they’ll be going all out in this encounter, and will be looking to the in-form Edin Dzeko to tuck away their chances.

    Stats to get your head around…
