Southampton will be playing for pride on Saturday when they travel to Manchester City for the second time in a week. 

Saints lost 3-1 to Pep Guardiola’s side in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, which followed a record-breaking 9-0 loss at home to Leicester City in the Premier League.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are clearly the underdogs at the Etihad Stadium this weekend, and avoiding embarrassment is likely to be at the top of the team’s list of priorities as they face an in-form City side. 

Southampton have few injury concerns, but the game is likely to come a little too soon for Moussa Djenepo and Cedric Soares, who are back in full training after suffering from respective tendon and calf problems. 

However, Hasenhuttl will not have Ryan Bertrand at his disposal following his red card against Leicester. 

As such, the boss faces a number of big selection dilemmas for Saturday afternoon’s clash. We’ve taken a look at the five main ones.
