Southampton will go to the Etihad Stadium this weekend to face the defending champions in a difficult game for the Saints.
Ralph will always get the team ready to go out and play against the big teams, but if they want to win on Saturday, they'll have to be flawless.
With the signing of Jack Grealish this summer, City have added to their already remarkable quality and are as dangerous as ever. Let's look at how both teams are likely to win this match-up.
It will surely rain goals
Manchester City may have begun the season hesitantly with back-to-back 1-0 losses in the Community Shield and the Premier League, but Pep Guardiola's side is back on track today.
The defending league winners' stunning 6-3 triumph over RB Leipzig on Wednesday made it four wins in a row, and fears over their failure to buy a new striker in the summer have all but vanished thanks to their amazing attacking record.
They've scored 17 goals in their previous four games, and there's a good possibility they'll add a few more against Southampton this weekend.
The Saints will be sinned against
The Saints haven't looked horrible so far this season, but a 3-1 loss at Goodison Park got them off to a bad start, and they're still winless in the Premier League after a draw last weekend.
Saturday is also unlikely to bring the long-awaited first victory. Their most recent visit to the Etihad ended in a 5-2 loss in March, and they haven't beaten Manchester City on the road since 2004.
We can't see anything but a thrashing for Manchester City here.
They've scored at least five goals in each of their three home games this season, and they finished last season with a 5-0 thrashing of Everton. Manchester City to score at least three goals appears to be excellent value.
Manchester City's last three home league games have all resulted in 5-0 victories, and after putting five past Ralph Hasenhuttl's side last time out, we are going with a fourth consecutive win for the Cityzens.
