Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany (C), Mangala, Clichy, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas, Jovetic, Nasri, Aguero

Caballero, Pozo, Milner, Lampard, Fernando, Sagna, Demichelis

Like it a good strong team even minus injured Silva.

C'mon City

I'm pleased to see Fernandinho go straight back in. I will be very interested to see how energised Yaya is for this one...

Very positive side with two up front. Bench looking a bit sparse attacking wise but it would be nice to see Pozo come on and make an impact. Come On City.

Who the feck is this ref?

Aguero gets hacked down in the area - and gets booked for diving  :o

Do not be surprised if Aguero gets a second yellow and sent off.

Ref is one Mike Jones?

Are we sure this is the same Mangala that played for us against Chelsea, I'm not.

Where do they get these refs from? Most have them haven't got the slightest clue. That was a clear penalty and yet a booking for diving was given. Really it should be unbelievable but after watching the game against the rags it is just par for the course I suppose. Utterly disgraceful.

I though we had a reasonable half without being incisive enough. Hopefully we can remedy that second half.

Half time, and after a promising start we have reverted yet again to our turgid, slow tempo, tippy-tappy, going no-where lateral passing - football.

Our movement off the ball is dreadful.

Drastic improvement needed in the second half or we will lose this one for certain.

What movement? There was movement, good God. We obviously have never heard off quick, sharp, incisive attacking.

I'll say one thing for Southampton - they're well organised and they work hard. Before the kick off I think the commentator on my feed said something about 7 of the Saint's players in the starting line up have played in every Premiership game this season. The continuity shows.

City legend Lampard strikes again.

Brillant intercept James Milner.

NO Toure was an idiot but no point Mangala clattering the attacker to the ground, always going to a yellow and off.
