BB, Rarely has one player so single-handedly dominated an international tournament like Fabio Cannavaro at the 2006 World Cup. His £10m move to Barcelona in 2002 did not exactly go as planned – with another talented Argentine poised to write himself into club folklore instead – but Riquelme made a success of himself in Spain with Villarreal under Manuel Pellegrini. LO, Thriving in the freedom created in his childhood tandem with Xavi, the diminutive playmaker was perhaps even more influential to Barcelona and Spain’s success, revving the tempo of Barcelona’s all-conquering side, unlocking defences with ingenious control and vision. LO, Few on this list can say they redefined their position but the little French magician did just that. It's all over at the Etihad Stadium, where Carabao Cup holders Manchester City march on in the competition at Saints' expense. The City skipper on the night sends it a couple of yards wide, and Saints remain only one goal behind. TK, One of the greatest goalscorers in Bundesliga history after a decade spent between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, the Polish striker has won seven league titles. When Mahrez lines up a shot from the edge of the box, Agüero is already on the move, and the looping deflection drops kindly for the striker to convert from six yards. BB, The most stylish player on our list – both on and off the pitch – Pirlo played the game at his own pace and with more grace than almost any other ever seen. TK, One of the most deadly strikers in European history, Shevchenko’s peak came at AC Milan where he won the Champions League in 2003 and the Ballon d’Or in 2004. JR, The four-time Premier League winner made over 300 appearances in England and made an enduring habit of thriving under pressure, winning the man-of-the-match award in Manchester United's Champions League final victory in 2008. While his grit and determination stand out, nobody lasts a decade at the Bernabeu without possessing exceptional quality, with three La Liga titles (which has eluded the club since his departure) and as many Champions Leagues, Zinedine Zidane would be wise to acquire a similar player now. A true artist who shone in an advanced playmaker role, before dropping deeper into midfield as his ageing legs lost their pace. City look set to make it four when Jesus sets up Mahrez with a clever backheel, but Bednarek throws himself in the way to make a last-ditch block. BB, Perhaps the most natural poacher in the countdown, Van Nistelrooy ended his career with better than a goal every two games and churned out far more through his peak years with PSV, Manchester United and Real Madrid. Anyone remembered as one of Brazil’s greatest players is more than worthy of this list. Due to the sheer scale of this comment community, we are not able to give each post the same level of attention, but we have preserved this area in the interests of open debate. LB, A ferociously competitive and combative midfield hard man, who made over 600 appearances for his beloved Roma and over 100 for his national team. Kevin de Bruyne shot narrowly wide. Final change of the game for City sees youngster Bernabé introduced. The numbers showed plenty of shots, but they were of the harmless variety. Man City vs Southampton: Premier League champions rally to keep pressure on Liverpool. BB, A thrilling wide player able to slice opponents open with darting runs inside and clever movement to give and receive in and around the box. LO, The defensive talisman cast a spell of leadership over Liverpool's 2019 Champions League-winning side and went the entire campaign without being dribbled past. A legendary figure with Bayern, inluding six Bundesliga titles in the last 20 years, he would also emerge as a leader for Germany and their runners-up finish at World Cup 2002 before a more calculated strategy saw Die Mannschaft become world champions. LB, The last man to win a Ballon d’Or before Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, history will remember Kaka as one of the great dribblers with his six-foot size allied with a uncharacteristically low centre of gravity making him nigh-on unstoppable on the run. In 10 years’ time, expect to see Kane in the top 20 of a similar list. Liverpool fans still adore him and so does everyone else. Evolved as football evolved, from teenage tearaway to cultured crosser as the legs slowed. Superb leader to boot. Compare form, standings position and many match statistics. | His combination of skill and creativity is largely unmatched in modern football, but he has also blared with inconsistency and struggled with persistent injury. Tottenham’s talisman. LB, Warrior. Matches between teams. BB, One of the very best in a long tradition of Italian defenders, but Nesta was different. And do not be fooled by his combustible reputation: in 2016, he placed his treasured World Cup winner's medal in the coffin of Pietro Lombardi, Italy’s kit man at the tournament. LO, In his pomp Falcao was probably the best striker on the planet. The key moments from Saints' cup trip to Eithad Stadium. And then there are the individual performances. Independent Premium Comments can be posted by members of our membership scheme, Independent Premium. Tonight, it's the Carabao Cup - a competition City have won for the last two years running - and Saints are looking for a big response. TK, A mercurial talent who never truly settled in the Premier League, but for a short spell as Chelsea won the title. However, please note that the intellectual property rights to stream such events are usually owned at a country level and therefore, depending on your location, there may be certain events that you may be unable to view due to such restrictions. His defensive capabilities brought him to the fore at Barcelona before his attacking prowess made him such a weapon for Manchester City. At times there was a policy of safety in numbers at the back: there was an incident in open play when all 11 Saints were inside their penalty area. Southampton : Manchester City: Win : 3: 13: Loss : 13: 3: Draw : 2: 2: Ø Goals per Match : 1.1: 2.4: League Table: 11. Junior Saints fans have the chance to lead the team out against Man City or Arsenal. Head to Head Statistics : Southampton vs Manchester City Year up to 2020 The Soccer Teams Southampton and Manchester City played 18 Games up to today. His pinnacle was the season after he broke his leg, when he returned so determined to make up for lost time that he won the European Golden Shoe. Godin is tough, utterly committed and completely fearless, and at the peak of his powers when Atletico Madrid won La Liga he was probably the best defender around. In this common Games the Teams scored a average of 3.5 Goals per Match. Disputes with Dutch managers hindered an international career that might have propelled him higher up this list. Tonight Jake Vokins is named in the matchday squad for the very first time! Jack Stephens (75’) Please continue to respect all commenters and create constructive debates. TK, A dominant player with great longevity and versatility. His selflessness, workrate and positional intelligence allowed him to lift a mostly dysfunctional Inter side over the years. Equally as adept up front as he was out wide he went on to replace the great Raul with the Spanish national team going to become the top scorer in their history as well as being pivotal to the Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 wins. It's a fine team move, as Walker gets on the overlap and crosses for Agüero to tap in an easy finish. A genius. He has a gravitational effect on an entire match, to a greater degree than anyone else. There may well be a handful of technically better centre-backs but his intangibles were vital to the culture at club and country where there was not a legacy of winning previously.
