Boufal confident ahead of City clash

By SFC Media Sun 23 Oct Man City vs Saints

Sofiane Boufal says Southampton can be confident of getting a result when they head to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Saints are looking to make it five unbeaten in the Premier League, as they aim to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Internazionale on Thursday night in Europe.

Boufal made his debut in that defeat in the San Siro, and believes Saints have every chance of getting a result against Pep Guardiola’s side on Sunday.

“It’s a very, very big game against Manchester City,” Boufal said. “They lost on Wednesday against Barcelone and will want to win again for confidence.

“It’s a very good match for us and I hope for a victory. Why not?

“Of course we can be confident. We have great players in our team.

“I think we can go to Manchester City and win. But it’s a very strong team, they have very good players.

“We need to focus and if we have good opportunities we need to score goals.”
