Is Southampton vs Man City on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Carabao Cup fixture
Southampton will hope to build on their FA Cup win over Crystal Palace and put in a good performance in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, but they face an almighty task against Manchester City.
Nathan Jones’ team are bottom of the Premier League and fans are firmly against the new boss, while Pep Guardiola’s side are second in the table and hunting success on multiple fronts once more.
City won this competition four years in a row until Liverpool stopped their run last term, but with the holders knocked out in the last round, it’s the Etihad club who are favourites once more.
Man United and Newcastle are the other clubs tipped to go the distance, if they can beat City somewhere along the way.

The only definite absentee for City is Ruben Dias, though it’s likely a number of fringe players or occasional starters could line up for Guardiola. Stefan Ortega should start in goal therefore, with Sergio Gomez and Cole Palmer among the others hoping to get significant game time.
