Confirmed Match Officials: Manchester City vs Southampton (Premier League)

Fresh from the thrashings of Manchester United and FC Copenhagen, Manchester City will have the opportunity to move to the top of the Premier League table with a victory over Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

City remain the the top-flights only unbeaten side, and will be looking for their seventh win of the campaign this weekend.

The in-form Blues welcome Southampton to the Etihad Stadium, with the Saints having taken points off the Blues on both occasions last season.
