Manchester City team news: Confirmed line-up for Premier League clash vs Southampton

Manchester City visit Southampton on Sunday with Pep Guardiola hoping to avoid losing three games in a row for just the second time in his career.

Guardiola was in charge of Bayern Munich back in 2015 the last time his side were beaten in three consecutive matches, but that record could be matched again today.

City followed up their shock home defeat by Crystal Palace with another loss at Leicester, making it three defeats in their last four Premier League matches.

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Pep

They are now 10 points behind league leaders Liverpool, and today’s match is considered a must-win if City are to remain in the title race.

Guardiola has selected a line-up for the clash which has more than enough talent to make light work of relegation battling Saints, with Riyad Mahrez, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero all named from the start.

Kevin De Bruyne misses out through injury, however, while John Stones has been dropped to the bench after starting the shock defeat at Leicester.
