SAINTS is back for the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City to St Mary’s, and available to buy online today.

Popular defender Lyanco is the cover star for this week's matchday programme, which features an extended interview with Nathan Tella, fresh from signing a new long-term contract.

The enthusiastic young forward highlights the need for him to add more goals and assists to his game, as he explains why he is so motivated by statistics.

Ralph Hasenhüttl declares his admiration for opposite number Pep Guardiola and the remarkable consistency that has seen City post 12 successive Premier League wins ahead of Saturday’s showdown.

Saints cult hero Franny Benali reviews the team’s last three fixtures, and underlines the boost it must give his teammates to have arguably the finest free-kick taker on the planet on their side, in James Ward-Prowse.

Tactics writer Sam Tighe assesses exactly how Guardiola has assembled his latest winning machine – even without a recognised striker.

There is also the traditional dose of nostalgia from our club historians, as well as a four-page quiz to keep our Junior Members entertained and allow them to test their Saints knowledge.

Supporters can pick up issue 12 of the programme from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, enhancing your matchday experience for just £3.50.
