Sluggish Manchester City stumble after Europe once again

    You can’t say he didn’t warn us.

    Pep Guardiola’s perceived plea for a larger Etihad attendance, following Manchester City’s Champions League victory over RB Leipzig in midweek, also included a grave warning for the visit of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton.

    “We will be tired,” he told BT Sport. “I know the team from Ralph is quite similar [to Leipzig], the way they play. They are so, so dangerous with good quality and it’s a really important game for us.”

    Guardiola, not for the first time in his career, was proven right. Southampton claimed a hard-fought point to draw 0-0 on Saturday afternoon, in front of a near sell-out crowd (at least that comment was heeded).
