Southampton v Manchester City predictions, betting tips and preview

Southampton’s form in the last couple of months has generally been pretty good and they could be capable of holding Manchester City (4th in Premier League) to a draw in the Saturday's EPL Week 33 fixture.

Southampton (9th in Premier League) are not the same team this season as they were under Mauricio Pochettino or Ronald Koeman. 

Southampton FC vs Manchester City predictions, betting tips and match preview

Southampton vs Manchester City predictions for Saturday’s English Premier League match at St Mary’s Stadium. Manchester City aiming to keep tight to their top 4 position in the EPL. 

Southampton’s form in the last couple of months has generally been pretty good and they could be capable of holding Manchester City (4th in Premier League) to a draw in the Saturday's EPL Week 33 fixture.

Southampton (9th in Premier League) are not the same team this season as they were under Mauricio Pochettino or Ronald Koeman. 

Whether Claude Puel is the right man for the club in the medium term remains to be seen. But on the positive side he took Southampton to the EFL Cup Final and has lifted them into the top half of the English Premier League table.

The only losses for Southampton have been in the EFL Cup Final, when they were unlucky to lose in 90 minutes to Manchester United, and away to a bang-in-form Tottenham Hotspur side. Drawing 0-0 at home to Bournemouth was not great but no disaster.

Man City’s season, considering they began with 10 straight wins, will ultimately be a disappointment if they do not lift the FA Cup, in which they play Arsenal in the semi-finals next weekend.

The title challenge has folded tamely and Man City failed to reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Pep Guardiola still has a long way to go before he can even be regarded as an upgrade on his predecessor Manuel Pellegrini.

Man City have been stronger away from home than on their own pitch this EPL term. City do not have the best of records at Southampton and may have to settle for 1 point to add a bit more tension in their quest to finish in the EPL top 4 this season.

Southampton vs Manchester City stats

Southampton have picked up just one win from their last 7 matches against Manchester City in the English Premier League (D2 L4), although that did come in this fixture last EPL season (4-2).

The Citizens last failed to score in a match against Southampton back in October 2004, having netted in all 11 meetings in all competitions since.

Southampton are unbeaten in their last 2 English Premier League meetings with Man City (W1 D1), while they have only twice previously gone 3 matches without defeat against them in the competition (January 1996 and May 2003).

Sergio Aguero has scored in 11 successive English Premier League appearances in the month of April (14 goals). Aguero scored in all 3 English Premier League matches in April 2017 so far and is currently on a run of scoring in 4 successive EPL appearances overall.

If Manchester City wins this match, they will equal their total number of English Premier League wins in 2015-16 under Manuel Pellegrini (19).

Dusan Tadic has been involved in 5 goals in his last 6 English Premier League appearances (1 goal, 4 assists).

A bit troubled by suspensions and injuries Southampton demonstrated character when their weakened side kept a clean sheet again and scored the only goal of the match at WBA. Romeu will be suspended again, but there is a big chance that both Davis and Gabbiadini will be back in contention.

Manchester City looks good, they never deserved to lose against Chelsea, but they did. While Southampton are in no man’s land Man City have a lot to play for and their winning mentality should prove decisive in this match, but our tipsters will not trust them as 1.79 winners.

There are no easy points down south and although our tipsters have Man City as likely winner we do not approve of the odds on the away win.

Man City have won only once in their last 5 visits to Southampton.

Only Chelsea have won more English Premier League away matches than City this season.

Man City are the highest scorers away from home in the EPL this term.
