Southampton vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting Tips - Premier League

 by Devesh Jaganath | in Premier League Prediction

With the English Premier League now in the final stretch of the season, every point gained counts. Second placed Manchester City can't afford a slip-up at bottom-of-the-table Southampton. This is  a match of huge significance for both sides. There’s no room left for error for City, who will still have faith that they can reel in the current league leaders, Arsenal, while time is rapidly evaporating for the Saints to somehow claw their way off the bottom of the table and out of the relegation zone.

Unsurprisingly, the visitors are heavily fancied to win this match, priced at respectable odds of 1.25 for the win on most bookmakers’ odds. The draw is returning as much as 6.5 to land, while a win for the hosts holds the outside market at a whopping 13.0 and better. Man City was excellent last week against Liverpool and blasted four goals past the Reds with relative ease, even without the services of Erling Haaland, who missed the match through injury. With the Norwegian looking likely to return to the lineup, the handicap market looks very tempting, returning 1.8 on the -1 option, while a slightly riskier -2 will return as much as 2.87 on your wager. Even in the event of Haaland not starting from the first whistle, with 42 goals to his name already this season, he would still be expected to register at least once against one of the worst defences in the league, and his backers could be rewarded with as much as 1.6 on their wager for him to net anytime.

Southampton - Manchester City: Form Analysis

Man City come into this match riding an excellent wave of form, unbeaten in their last eleven matches in all competitions, which included a 7-0 drubbing of RB Leipzig in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. They are unbeaten in their last six league matches, with five wins and a draw, which leaves them in second place in the league, eight points behind Arsenal, though they do have a game in hand. Man City is also on a four-match unbeaten run in away league matches, including three wins and a draw, last tasting defeat in early February against Spurs.

Meanwhile, Southampton has only managed one win in their last six league matches, along with two draws ad three losses. The Saints are rooted to the bottom of the league with 23 points after 29 matches, two points below second-from-bottom Leicester City and four points from safety. Southampton has managed just one win in their last 10 home league matches, conceding 18 and scoring just nine in that period.

Southampton & Manchester City Squad Analysis

Erling Haaland was spotted in first-team training this week and is expected to make a return to the matchday squad, though it’s unclear if he is fully fit to play from the start, especially considering that they have a midweek clash against Bayern Munich in a few days. The only certain absentee for the visitors will be the elegant Englishman Phil Foden, who is still recovering from the appendix surgery he underwent last month. As for Southampton, manager Ruben Selles may have something of an injury crisis on his hands with Mohammed Salisu and Che Adams both still doubtful after missing last week's clash against West Ham, while Armel Bella-Kotchap has been ruled out with a shoulder injury, joining Juan Larios and Tino Livramento who are both likely to remain sidelined for the rest of the season with long-term injuries.

Our Southampton vs Manchester City Prediction

It’s difficult to make much of a case for the Saints in this one, as they look destined to be relegated with each passing week. Man City has smashed in 17 goals in their last three matches in all competitions, and looks like they are ready to take the title race right down to the wire. They are unbeaten in their last five matches against this opponent, scoring 11 and conceding just three in that time, and will be eyeing up a big win in this one.
