The defending champions are on a strong run with three successive victories in row in the league and then a 6-3 defeat of Leipzig in the Champions League in midweek. Their latest domestic match saw them squeeze past Leicester 1-0 but prior to that they had hit ten goals in 5-0 home victories over Arsenal and Norwich.
Southampton are still chasing their first win of the season with three draws and a defeat in their opening four. Last time out they drew 0-0 with West Ham in a game that was low on chances and quality. On the road, the Saints have struggled six defeats and one draw from their last seven.

Man City vs Southampton: Match Stats
The hosts should win this one comfortably and having dispatched Leipzig for six in midweek and Arsenal and Norwich for five each it would be hard to argue against them racking up the goals here. Back over 3.5 goals for City in this fixture especially as Saints shipped five here last season.
Aymeric Laporte was rested in midweek for the Champions League which suggests he should drop back into the first team here. The Spanish international has had eight shots in the box this season which no defender can better this campaign. He looks good value to get among the goals here.
