Three reasons Southampton will cause an upset against Man City
The Citizens boast arguably the greatest manager of his generation, Pep Guardiola, one of the most expensively-assembled squads in Europe and some of the Premier League’s biggest talents – not least including midfield playmakers Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, alongside star striker Sergio Aguero.
Compare that to a Saints outfit who’ve sold their key players for the last three summers, lost manager Ronald Koeman to Everton during the off-season and started the campaign by taking just two points from their first four Premier League games.
However, there are now just seven points separating the two clubs in the league table, with City in pole position and Southampton rocking up in eighth, and their coming meeting at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday could be a lot closer than most people think.
In fact, we at FootballFanCast are tipping Claude Puel’s boys to cause a shock upset this weekend.
