What channel is Southampton v Man City on? Kick off time and latest team news- 5 July 2020

Manchester City head to Southampton seeking to maintain their Premier League form


Manchester City are back in action on Sunday against a Southampton side that have effectively secured their top-flight status for another season.


City must keep looking over their shoulder to ensure they are not caught in second place.

However, the 4-0 thrashing of champions Liverpool proves Pep Guardiola won’t allow his side’s remaining Premier League fixtures to become dead-rubbers.

Guardiola will want City to build strong form in order to be in top shape heading into their FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal later this July.

Saints have little to play for themselves bar league position, but this may well mean the game opens up at St Mary’s.

Southampton v Man City team news

<Southampton: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg missed Southampton’s last outing against Watford and may struggle to get back into the side this weekend. Shane Long got 75 minutes at Vicarage Road and could play the whole game here.

Danny Ings should start up front after his double last Sunday, while Stuart Armstrong may come in for Will Smallbone in midfield. Kyle Walker-Peters should keep his spot in defence.

Man City: City will head to the south coast in high spirits after thumping Liverpool 4-0 in midweek. Leroy Sane has gone back to Germany, while Sergio Aguero is out injured for the rest of the summer.

Eric Garcia proved his fitness against Liverpool and should start again, while Phil Foden may stay in the XI after scoring on Thursday night. Gabriel Jesus is expected to lead the line here.

Our prediction: Southampton v Man City

Southampton have effectively secured their Premier League survival for another year and they may take their foot off the gas here at St Mary’s.

City are not a team that suffer bouts of bad form and any suggestion that losing the Premier League title race to Liverpool will inflict a blow on further results was dismissed with a 4-0 thumping of the Reds on Thursday.

Pep Guardiola will expect three points here and his side are likely to take command.

Our prediction: Southampton 0-2 Man City
