Learn How to watch Man City vs Southampton Live broadcasting on TV channel. We provide the best watch guide for today’s English Premier League match live on 08/10/2022. Manchester City is offered the chance to overtake Arsenal at the top of the Premier League today as an out-of-form Southampton visit the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s defending champions have dropped points just twice across all competitions so far this season and are riding a formidable five-match winning streak in which they have flexed their considerable goalscoring muscles, spearheaded by the incredible talent that is Erling Haaland.
Both Haaland and Phil Foden notched hat-tricks in a devastating 6-3 Manchester derby rout of United at the Etihad last weekend, before the former added a brace as FC Copenhagen was hit for five in the Champions League in midweek.
The city will fancy their chances of performing a similar demolition job on Southampton and jumping above pacesetters Arsenal, who are not in action until hosting Liverpool in a huge clash on Sunday.
The Saints currently sit 16th and just a point above the relegation zone after winning only two of their first eight matches so far this term, losing three in a row to reportedly place manager Ralph Hasenhuttl on the brink once more. A heavy loss here could be all she wrote for the Austrian after almost four years in charge with the fresh impetus needed.

Man City vs Southampton team news
Manchester City is without Kyle Walker, who underwent surgery on a groin injury earlier this week and is now in a race against time to be fit for the World Cup.
England team-mates John Stones and Kalvin Phillips are also still out with hamstring and shoulder problems respectively.
Southampton is still missing Tino Livramento and Romeo Lavia, while Adam Armstrong and Juan Larios both face late fitness tests.
Man City vs Southampton prediction
How on earth does one go about devising a game plan to successfully thwart goal machine Haaland and the rest of the City’s vast attacking riches?
The strength in depth available to Guardiola is frankly preposterous and it seems impossible to shut down all of their threats simultaneously, especially as an out-of-form team away from home with a manager on the brink of the sack.
The city was actually fortunate to escape with a goalless draw from this fixture last September, but that surely won’t be the case this time around.
Man City to win, 4-0.

Early team news
City’s main blow this week came when it was confirmed that Kyle Walker would be out of action for some time following successful surgery on his groin following an injury that occurred during the Manchester derby. This will likely give Sergio Gomez a chance to impress in his place though.
Elsewhere, Kalvin Phillips remains out following his own surgery but Aymeric Laporte did return in midweek to offer Guardiola another option at the back. In the Southampton camp, Hasenhuttl is buoyed by having a number of former City players in his side including Gavin Bazunu and Samuel Edozie who both featured in the defeat to Everton last weekend.
