Warren Haughton: Saints Praying For Mercy Vs City
NOBODY should be fooled by Southampton’s midweek performance against Manchester City, it’s Saturday’s league trip to the Etihad we should focus on.
Pep Guardiola made nine changes to the side that beat Aston Villa last weekend and he will show the visitors no mercy when they return to Manchester.
Ok, Southampton showed a bit of spirit, but that was a free hit in the Carabao Cup.
The Saints were embarrassed 0-9 on their own patch last week against Leicester City.
They were so bad they donated a day’s wages to charity.
The Saints foundation could be in for another windfall this weekend.
Ralph Hasenhuttl will be braced for a City onslaught, the champions are (insert odds here) to hit the visitors for nine.
If you’re a Saints fan and anniversaries are your thing then look away now, this weekend a year ago Southampton were thumped 6-1 at the Etihad.
DOES RALPH NEED THE HASEN-HASSLE?
Hasenhuttl, the highly respected coach might be wondering why he bothered to take the job at St Mary's.
His side can’t buy a win just two victories in their last 15 league games.
Che Adams has been a huge disappointment this term.
The striker has failed to score since his £15 summer move from Birmingham City
Their only hope is parking three buses and Danny Ings adding to his four league goals, you can get 7/2 for that to happen.
But they face Raheem Sterling who will look to fill his boots after scoring 13 goals in 14 games this term already.
The England man is 6/10 to bag and 12/1 to hit his third hat-trick of the season.
