Southampton host Manchester City at St Marys Stadium on Sunday in the Premier League, as the visitors look to move a step closer to claiming a top-four spot this season.

Southampton recorded a 4-2 win at relegated Aston Villa last time out in the Premier League. Goals from Shane Long and Dusan Tadic gave the Saints a two goal, before Ashley Westwood got a goal back for Villa.

Tadic scored his second of the game, only for Westwood to score his second of the game. However the Saints sealed victory in stoppage-time through a Sadio Mane header.

The win means that Southampton are now eighth in the Premier League and are still in with an outside chance of claiming a European spot.

Manchester City recorded a comfortable 4-0 win over Stoke last time out in the Premier League. Fernando opened the scoring, before Sergio Aguero doubled the Citizens lead from the penalty spot. Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho scored a brace in the second half to complete a comfortable win for City.

The win kept Manuel Pellegrini’s side five points clear of fifth-place Manchester United, although the Red Devils have a game in-hand.

Aguero is now in thick of the fight for the golden boot this season in the Premier League, having scored 23 times in the English top-flight. Only Tottenham’s Harry Kane on 24 has scored more Premier League goals this season.
