Southampton vs Man City: Team news

Southampton are dealing with a number of injury concerns ahead of City’s visit, but Moussa Djenepo and Jack Stephens are available.

Saints duo Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sofiane Boufal are unlikely to feature after missing last weekend’s win at Watford, while Nathan Tella and Yan Valery are doubts.

Jannik Vestergaard is struggling with a muscle problem but fellow centre-back Stephens is back from a one-game ban. Djenepo can play for the first time since play resumed having served a three-match suspension.

For City, Fernandinho will be available again after suspension.

The Brazilian midfielder, who has spent most of the season playing in defence, has served a two-match ban for his sending off in the loss at Chelsea last week.

With Leroy Sane having now left for Bayern Munich, top scorer Sergio Aguero is the only major absentee with a knee injury.

Southampton XI: McCarthy, Walker-Peters, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond, Ings, Adams

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Garcia, Laporte, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, D. Silva, B. Silva, Mahrez, Sterling, Jesus
