MATCH FACTS

Southampton drew 0-0 in the reverse fixture against Man City earlier this season but haven’t avoided defeat in both league meetings with the Citizens since the 2002-03 campaign (W2).

Manchester City have won eight of their last 10 Premier League games against Southampton (D1 L1). However, the Citizens have failed to score in two of their last four against Saints in the competition, having found the net in each of their previous 16 against them.

Southampton have won their last two Premier League home games against sides starting the day top of the table, beating Everton and Liverpool last season. The last side to win more consecutive home league games against the league leaders were Tottenham, who did four in a row between January 2015 and January 2017.

Southampton are unbeaten in their last seven home Premier League games (W3 D4), their best unbeaten run at St Mary’s since a run of nine between March and October 2016.

Manchester City have won their last 12 Premier League games in a row by an aggregate score of 34-7; since losing 2-0 to Crystal Palace in October, they have won 36 points, 13 more than any other Premier League side.

After keeping five clean sheets in eight Premier League games between September and November, Southampton have conceded in each of their last 10 matches in the competition, shipping 21 goals in the process.

Manchester City have opened the scoring in more different Premier League games than any other side this season, going on to win all 17 games in which they scored first.

As well as having the tightest defence in the Premier League this season with just 13 goals conceded, Manchester City have also shipped the lowest ratio of their goals before half-time this term – just two of their 13 goals conceded have come before half-time (15%).

Southampton striker Armando Broja has scored in his first four home Premier League starts, netting one goal each time. In Premier League history, the only player to score in his first five home starts is Gary Penrice for Queens Park Rangers between September and December 1992.

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been involved in 11 goals in his last 14 Premier League starts (9 goals, 2 assists), scoring the winner against Chelsea in their last game. De Bruyne has assisted in all three of his league starts at St Mary’s (4 in total), with only Harry Kane assisting more goals at St Mary’s as an away player (5).
