Interestingly, Southampton also got the second-highest defeat ever in the Premier League as they lost 9-0 against Leicester two years ago.

As it stands presently on the Premier League table, Manchester United are currently occupying second position on the log and the Red Devils are pilling the pressure on Manchester City.

But the Citizens have an advantage for them to extend their lead on the Premier League table as they are having two games in hands.

Pep Guardiola and his wards will be facing Burnley on Wednesday night, January 3, in their next Premier League game.
