Manchester City must beat Saints to show Chelsea who real title rivals are

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses what Sergio Aguero means to Manchester City and Steve Nicol gives his take on the helping hand City had in the Champions League.

Not a single soul wearing the smart blue clothes of Manchester City will be rubbing their hands with glee at the thought of a long trip to visit Southampton this weekend. The south coast club have form for upsetting City down the years.

Before the move to St Mary's in 2001 the Saints played in a quaint shoebox ground at The Dell, a place where City almost never came away with anything but knotted limbs and bulging eyes.

Participating is the focus for English clubs in the Champions League

Matchday 5 of the UEFA Champions League saw Messi shatter the goal record, Aguero save City and Zlatan's triumphant return.

Three wins and a draw: a much better week for English clubs in the Champions League than of late. Chelsea soared at Schalke, Manchester City were saved by the genius of Sergio Aguero, Arsenal tamed a tormentor in Borussia Dortmund, leaving only Liverpool to concede a late equaliser to Ludogorets.

"I was disappointed in the goal at the end but it's irrelevant," said Brendan Rodgers. A draw did not change Liverpool's task for their final match -- beating Basel was required, anyway.

Frank Lampard believes the rest of the Manchester City players have to relieve the goalscoring burden on Sergio Aguero.

Surprise top of the table clash as City prepare to face bogey-team Saints

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses what Sergio Aguero means to Manchester City and Steve Nicol gives his take on the helping hand City had in the Champions League.

As the mass exodus from the Southampton dressing room took place over the summer, there will have been half an eye from Manchester City fans on two things. The first was that some of those departing had been linked with a move to the Blues, but the second was that their side might not struggle on the south coast as they have done recently if the Saints' first team all went marching off.

Somehow, Southampton lost some top class players, a manager and a chairman -- and appear to have come out stronger...
