As for the flanks, Cancelo and Kyle Walker are expected to occupy the left-back and right-back positions respectively.
The trio of Kevin De Bruyne, Rodri, and Gundogan are expected to occupy the positions in the middle of the park.
Jack Grealish could be rested for this game, as such, Raheem Sterling should replace in the left-wing-forward position.
Ferrran Torres and Gabriel Jesus are expected to play as center-forward and right-wing-forward respectively.
Here's an illustration of the possible lineup below:
- City have won eight of their last nine Premier League meetings versus Southampton, the only exception is a 1-0 loss at St Mary’s in July 2020.
- The Saints have failed to score in only one of their previous 16 away trips to City, but they have also been unable to register a single clean sheet across the last 11 games.
