Live on Sky Sports (in the UK), kick off 17:30 (GMT).

A chance to extend our winning run to 13 league games. It's a game that you would expect us to win but Southampton made life difficult at the Etihad earlier in the sesason, holding us to a 0-0 draw. It didn't help that only 1 of our 16 shots that day was on target. Southampton are in decent form picking up 8 points in the last 5 games, whatever we do, don't give away any free kicks in shooting range.

This is our last game before a 2 week international break (European players have a rest). I'd guess our lads will get a rest with their families for a couple of days and some warm weather training. Our next match after this is Fulham (H) in the FA Cup on the 5th Feb.

Absentees v Chelsea
Mahrez - AFCON
Palmer
Zinchenko
Ake

You never can quite tell how Soton are going to perform. Given our form, I predict a hard fought battle with City just winners. 1-2.

Don't expect this to be a walk in the park by any stretch.
Not expecting wholesale changes, Covid permitting, and will be happy with 3 points.
