Team News

Manchester City shift their focus away from the Premier League title race today with an FA Cup quarter-final tie at Southampton.

The Blues remain in the hunt for a possible treble as they hold Liverpool at bay in the league and await Atletico Madrid in the last-eight of the Champions League.

But they’re facing a tough test today at St Mary’s against a Saints side that has already held City to draws twice already this season.

The good news for Pep Guardiola is that he only has one player definitely ruled out in Ruben Dias, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury. But he is likely to shuffle his pack a little, with the possibility of Zack Steffen replacing Ederson in goal and fringe players like Nathan Ake and Fernandinho hoping to feature.
