Manchester City will look to bounce back from three defeats in four Premier League games when they take on Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday.
Liverpool extended their lead over the champions to 10 points with a victory over Arsenal on Saturday, so City need to turn their form around after back-to-back losses against Crystal Palace and Leicester City respectively.
Southampton on the other hand are aiming to put further distance between themselves and the relegation places, and will take confidence from the fact they beat the Gunners at home only two weeks ago.

Goalkeepers McCarthy, Forster, Gunn
Defenders Vestergaard, Hoedt, Stephens, Yoshida, Bednarek, Bertrand, Targett, Soares
Midfielders Lemina, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Armstrong, Davis, Redmond, Elyounouss
Forwards Ings, Austin, Long, Gabbiadini, Gallagher
Mario Lemina could miss out for Southampton with a stomach problem and Ryan Bertrand remains sidelined with a back injury. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg returns from a one match suspension though.
