Manchester City travel to the south coast on Saturday evening to try and extent their lead at the top of the Premier League by beating Southampton .

Saints held Pep Guardiola’s men to a goalless draw back in October but today’s visitors have been in scintillating form in recent months, winning their last 12 consecutive league fixtures and building up a lead of 11 points to second-placed Liverpool and 14 to Chelsea in third.

Kevin De Bruyne’s superb curling finish was enough to secure victory over the Blues last time out, and the Belgian could start up front at St. Mary’s with Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden either side of him.

Saints, meanwhile, are ten points clear of the relegation battle and will almost certainly remain in the Premier League for another campaign. They were taken over by Serbian business magnate Dragan Solak for £100m at the beginning of January and will be looking to reinforce their squad before the January transfer window closes.
