Ending 2015 in free-fall and looking like gate-crashing the relegation party, the Saints have looked a new team in 2016. They're now closer to fifth than the bottom half.

One win in six ended City's title hopes and put their place in the top four under serious threat. They've put that behind them now and are back up to third after 4 wins in five, with Aguero scoring in all five.

Southampton haven't conceded more than two goals in a game since the reverse fixture, a run of 21 games.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Wouldn't be surprised to see some people rested/rotated. Balance the league with the game on Wednesday.

Be interesting to see how many changes Man City do make - they will have an eye and a half on the Madrid game but will also want to secure a top 4 place...

So frustrating that we had that awful run around late November straight through to Early January. 1 point against Aston Villa and Norwich. It's more probably the thing that will cost us Europa League football next season.

I think we'll get soundly beaten today unfortunately.

Aguero, KDB and Kompany all left out. Only Aguero even on the bench.

2 - 0 now through Mane, such a dangerous player, a few bigs clubs should be looking at him.

No idea why he's not been used more. Game on?

Probably not.

Wow, this weekend's actually gone incredibly well for us.

If Chelsea beat Spurs tomorrow, St Totteringham's might even be back on!

Mane back on form then after a bad start to the year.

Great performance from us.

Weak City lineup still cost more than our squad and probably our stadium put together but no doubt it will still be about the weakened side and how poor they played.

We beat the Champions League semi finalists in the same week Pompey celebrate finishing in the League Two play offs...

One team in Hampshire.

Can't wait for a club to pay massively over the odds for Mane in the Summer.

United is my bet. :2thumb:

Well we have been linked to him for months now.

I'd prefer Mahrez if we go down the prem-proven right winger route but Mane wouldn't be a bad signing at all.

We will inevitably pay over the odds though no matter who we buy though, yeah.

Hoy Liverpool always have first say on So'ton players and every time he plays against us he scores. We'd take him! :D
