Fox optimistic ahead of season opener

Published Add your comment

Danny Fox is confident Southampton will travel to Manchester City for their Barclays Premier League opener on Sunday afternoon pressure-free and with "no fear."

City are red-hot favourites to get their campaign off to a flier, but former Celtic and Burnley defender Fox insists Nigel Adkins' side will play in the same positive and carefree manner which won them promotion last season.

"Everyone knows how good Manchester City are, we watched them last week against Chelsea in the Community Shield," he said. "It will be a game where if we win everyone will be shocked and if we lose no one will be shocked."
