Southampton vs Manchester City Preview: How to Watch on TV, Live Stream, Kick Off Time & Team News

High-flying Southampton welcome a dipping Manchester City side to St Mary's for an exciting clash on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.

The hosts sit pretty in third place in the table, four points and five positions better off than the Sky Blues who are desperately short of confidence.

Pep Guardiola's men have been a shadow of their former selves of late, with goals drying up in recent weeks, and in a season filled with fine margins, the Catalan needs his side to turn up and get the job done against a side that will test them to the limit.

City need to start winning games soon - this settling-for-a-point culture won't do them any good as they enter the most testing period of the Premier League campaign.

Southampton will not take the game to City but their brilliance on the counter, competence from set-plays and defensive resolve make them dangerous opponents any day of the week.
