  • Sat, 22 Jan 2022 20:22:05 +0000: Southampton 1-1 Manchester City: Premier League – as it happened - Southampton | The Guardian

    The champions and leaders dominated, but obdurate Saints refused to buckle, ending City’s winning Premier League sequence at 12

    4 min: City keep on with the keep ball. But then Rodri miscontrols, Ward-Prowse snaffles, and Dias bowls Adams to the ground. A free kick just outside the centre circle.

    2 min: Foden swings it in. Armstrong heads behind, and it’s the first corner of the evening. City play it short. De Bruyne eventually swings it in. Salisu heads it out. Saints have hardly had a touch yet.

  • Sat, 22 Jan 2022 19:26:33 +0000: Aymeric Laporte spares Manchester City’s blushes at battling Southampton - Southampton | The Guardian

    It must have felt peculiar at full time for Manchester City, as they left the pitch without the full complement of points in a Premier League game for the first time since October. They failed to extend their winning run to 13 matches but they avoided defeat after Aymeric Laporte headed in a second-half equaliser to open up a 12-point advantage over second-placed Liverpool, who have two games in hand.

    Pep Guardiola bristles at suggestions that City have a fourth title in five seasons all but secured and Southampton, who proved challenging opponents, provided the perfect evidence that it may not be a stroll to the finish line after all.

  • Fri, 21 Jan 2022 16:30:15 +0000: Southampton v Manchester City: match preview - Southampton | The Guardian

    Manchester City have won 12 league matches in succession and, in such irresistible form, look very likely to make it 13 at Southampton. A swathe of pundits believe City need to sign a striker before the window closes and possibly this would help Pep Guardiola finally get over the line in the Champions League, but domestically they are cruising to glory without the frivolities of an out-and-out No 9. In the process they are making the rest of the top flight rather red-faced as no one seems able to stop City’s Rube Goldberg goal machine. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side will need to be supremely focussed from the off and that’s just to avoid a thrashing. Graham Searles

  • Fri, 21 Jan 2022 00:01:15 +0000: Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend - Southampton | The Guardian

    Steven Gerrard and Duncan Ferguson renew hostilities, a crunch clash at Vicarage Road and another Chelsea-Spurs showdown

    Norwich’s hopes of following up on last weekend’s win over Everton by prevailing in Friday’s crucial six-pointer against Watford suffered a blow when it was confirmed Tim Krul would miss the game with a shoulder injury. While one goalkeeper’s misfortune is another’s opportunity, Norwich fans won’t take much confidence from Angus Gunn’s most recent spell deputising for Krul between the sticks, when it could be argued he could have done a lot better for four of the eight goals Norwich conceded in games against Arsenal and Crystal Palace over the festive period. “Gunny was disappointed with the results that we had in the two games that he played in,” said Dean Smith. “He has been working hard to get that opportunity back again and it has presented itself now, so he knows he has got to go and play well.” No pressure, Angus.

  • Mon, 17 Jan 2022 08:00:15 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Southampton | The Guardian

    James Ward-Prowse enters Beckham territory, time ticks down for Christian Pulisic and Villa Park discovers a new local hero

    Expectations were high when Chelsea’s executives shook hands on the £58m deal that brought the much sought-after signature of Christian Pulisic, the man who the club’s director, Marina Granovskaia, hoped would “become an important player for many years to come”. Three years and 95 Chelsea appearances later, the American is yet to match that description and has too rarely given the impression that he might ever do so. At Manchester City he was a non-presence, seeing little of the ball and doing nothing with it when he did. City are about as tough as opponents come but big money demands to be repaid on big occasions. Pulisic has the talent and temperament to deliver in such fixtures – his elegant goal against Liverpool this month was proof of that – but too often he seems content to exist on the periphery of matches rather than bend them to his will. At 23, time is on his side – though the Chelsea hierarchy are not exactly known for their patience. Alex Hess

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has been a busy man in the transfer market this summer as he looks to reinforce his squad for the start of next season after a great run which saw them promoted to the English top flight via the play offs. Adkins is now desperate to bring in new names to the club so that he can secure their position in the top flight for another season at least.

The first signing of the summer sees promising young full back Nathaniel Clyne arrive at St Mary`s from Crystal Palace after the promise of the clubs plans to attempt to quality for Europe this season were very enticing for the player. Southampton though will need to pay a large compensation fee to his current club if the deal goes through as due to the players age his former club feel they are due some type of payment from the saints after he signed a new four year deal last week.

Another player who has just be signed by the club is talented striker Jay Rodriguez after he recently arrived from Burnley for a fee which is believed to be around the six and a half million pounds mark. Adkins has long been an admirer of the player and is extremely happy with the signing which he sees as just perfect to bolster his attacking line for next season.

A shocking bit of news right now for Southampton is the fact that their attempts to bring defender Alexander Buttner to St Mary`s may be in tatters after his current club Vitesse Arnham have halted the move after another club have come into the frame for the players signature. Southampton may now find themselves in a bidding war for the player who they see as a perfect addition to their squad so as of now all dealings over the player have hit a premature halt.
