There’s no doubt that Manchester City will look to build on their impressive recent form when they travel to take on out of sorts Southampton on Saturday.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side suffered a late fight back from West Bromwich Albion to claim a third successive league win and consolidate third place in the table.
The 2011/2012 Champions are now just six points behind leaders Arsenal and with a clash against the Gunners looming large the club will hope to continue their good form.
Southampton meanwhile have lost their way in recent weeks with their midweek defeat to Aston Villa third loss on the trot.
The Saints made a stunning start to the season conceding just five goals in their opening nine games but defensively frailties have come to the fore in recent weeks with 10 goals leaked in their last five games.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino bemoaned his side recent defensive lapses but believes his side have been unfortunate in recent weeks. The Argentine has a point especially as the club impressed against both Arsenal and Chelsea and dominated possession against Villa, creating 21 chances.
Speaking through his interpreter, Pochettino told Sky Sports: “Overall, our possession was good but we also made some errors at the back and usually this team is quite solid at the back.
“They were also lucky in the fact that they had four chances all game and scored from three of them. We created 21 chances, so overall I thought we were unlucky.
“We were just not solid at the back and we were heavily punished. It seemed we had the game under control until they scored their third goal from long range.”
Before adding that he hopes to avoid a fourth successive defeat against City, adding “Of course we will try and stop this bad run of results.
“I think both results against Arsenal and Chelsea were undeserved and we were unlucky tonight.”
Southampton look set to be boosted by the return of Victor Wanyama and Nathaniel Clyne following knocks while City will once again be without Matija Nastasic, David Silva and Stevan Jovetic.
Vincent Kompany is likely to start the game after returning midweek against WBA while Alvaro Negredo could return after failing to appear against the Baggies.
