Premier League Preview for Southampton v Manchester City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Southampton’s recent three match losing streak has seen them drop from third down to eighth. They do still have a respectable 22 points and are just ahead of reigning EPL Champions Manchester United on goal difference. They have only lost one match at home this season, however that did come in Wednesday’s 3-2 to Aston Villa.
Manchester City have worked their way up into third place with three wins in a row, including a goal filled 3-2 away win over West Brom on Wednesday. In these three matches they have scored 12 goals and their season tally is up to 40.
My prediction is another Manchester City win, but one that is filled with goals on both sides. Manchester City may have just won on the road, but their away record is 2-1-4 while scoring 11 goals and allowing 12. Their only road clean sheet was the 0-0 against Stoke back in September. Southampton’s home record has been quite good at 4-2-1. They have scored 13 goals and allowed 5, with four of those coming in their last two home games.
Betting Odds: Southampton win: 4.62-5.02; Draw: 3.65-3.93; Man City win: 1.76-1.80
Form: Southampton (W, D, W, L, L, L) Man City (L, W, L, W, W, W)
