After suffering a shock 2-0 defeat in the EFL Cup to Southampton at St.Mary’s in January, Man City will be looking for revenge as they aim to put the pressure on Arsenal before their trip to Anfield on Sunday.

The Citizens have been in unstoppable form since their defeat to Spurs in early February, with Pep Guardiola’s side currently on an 11 game unbeaten run across all competitions that has seen them win each of their seven games by an aggregate score of 27-2. City have also won each of their last 10 Premier League matches against teams starting the day bottom of the table, a run stretching back to March 2016.

They haven’t even conceded a goal in a game against a team starting bottom in any of their last 14 such matches, with Connor Wickham’s strike for Sunderland in April 2014 being the last. Bottom placed sides have played 21 hours and seven minutes of football against City since then without finding the net.

Saints, meanwhile, have struggled at St.Mary’s  in the Premier League, picking up fewer home points (10) and conceding more home goals (24) than any other side in the division so far in 2022/23. They have also only won one of their last 13 Premier League matches against Manchester City (D3 L9), a 1-0 home win in July 2020 and are winless in their last four games across all comps (D2 L2), failing to score in three of those games.
