Ronald Koeman forged his name as a player with Barcelona and Holland as a no nonsense midfielder but it is for his tactical nous that he has so far shone from the dugout with Southampton.

The task facing his second-placed Saints is shutting out Manchester City and adding to the pressure on Manuel Pellegrini and his star-studded line-up of big money international signings.

Pellegrini has continued to splash the cash whereas Koeman saw some of the biggest names at St Mary’s head through the exit door in the summer after agreeing to succeed Mauricio Pochettino following his move to Tottenham.

If City are to break down Southampton’s resolute defence which has conceded just six goals in 12 games this season they will look to the prolific talents of Sergio Aguero.

The Argentinian hitman has contributed half of his team’s 24 goals this campaign and looked one of the best strikers in the world as he grabbed a hat-trick in City’s dramatic Champions League 3-2 win over Bayern Munich on Tuesday. However, even he is sure to be tested by a Saints defence that has played a big part in propelling the team to second in the table.

Nathaniel Clyne’s form has earned him recognition with the England senior side – and an equalising goal at Aston Villa on Monday. His international team-mate Fraser Forster has seven clean sheets in 12 appearances for his club in the Premier League.

Forster will have to be at his best against Aguero in a season when City’s league exploits have gone a little way to make up for their previously lacklustre displays in the Champions League.

But Tuesday’s victory could be a turning point for City while, for Koeman and his players, blunting the talents of Aguero and downing the champions would go a long way to further enhancing Saints’ reputation.
