Manchester City will be without three players for the game against Southampton on Saturday.
Kyle Walker has undergone surgery on a groin injury and is unlikely to play again before the World Cup. John Stones picked up a hamstring problem on international duty but he could be back available at the beginning of next week. Kalvin Phillips remains on the treatment table with a shoulder injury.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Southampton:
Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Akanji, Ake, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Silva, Foden, Haaland, Grealish
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl should have Adam Armstrong and Juan Larios fit for the trip to the Etihad, with both having recovered from minor knocks. However, Romeo Lavia (hamstring) and Tino Livramento (knee) are still out of contention.
Southampton’s Predicted XI:
Bazunu, Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Caleta-Car, Larios, S. Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Maitland-Niles, Aribo, A. Armstrong, Adams
The bookmakers have made City the heavy favourites with Ladbrokes pricing them at 1/9 odds-on for the win. A draw is 10/1 with Sky Bet while a victory for the Saints is 22/1 at Coral.
Predicted Score – 4-0 to City
