Time for the defending champions to kick off their first match of the season. Manchester City host newly-promoted Southampton in their first competitive match since that goal by Sergio Aguero, and you wouldn't really expect them to have too much difficulty with the Saints here. The visitors have contrived to leave their two best players in Rickie Lambert and Steven Davis on the bench, which seems dangerous, while Roberto Mancini looks like he's abandoning the 3-5-2 he's been playing with in preseason.
Southampton starting lineup (4-5-1): Kelvin Davis; Danny Fox, Jos Hooiveld, Jose Fonte, Nathanial Clyne; Adam Lallana, Morgan Schneiderlin, Guly do Prado, James Ward-Prowse, Jason Puncheon; Jay Rodriguez.
Substitutes from: Paulo Gazzaniga, Rickie Lambert, Steven Davis, Billy Sharp, Frazer Richardson, Luke Shaw, Danny Seaborne.
