Manchester City Team News

After eight rounds, the Manchester City team is the primary candidate for winning a new title in the Premier League. We say this because they play great football, and all the statistics confirm that.

They scored 29 and conceded only nine goals, which shows their superiority over their opponents. Two draws against Newcastle and Aston Villa were the “trigger” for City to start an incredible streak. After meeting Aston Villa, they recorded five consecutive victories with a goal difference of 20:4.

In the last two meetings, they defeated United 6:3 and FC Copenhagen 5:0, so it is unnecessary to talk about why bookmakers pay for their victory in this match with a coefficient lower than 1.10.

Southampton Team News

On the other hand, Southampton cannot boast of its past performance. They won only seven points in the eight games played, so they are currently very close to the danger zone. The big problem this season is efficiency, considering that they scored only eight goals. With such a modest goal-scoring performance in such a high-quality competition, it is difficult to expect a more concrete result.

They are on a streak of three consecutive defeats, and in the last five matches, they scored only two goals. Their crisis is clearly visible, and they need shock therapy as soon as possible. At an inconvenient moment for them, a duel with the leading contender for the title is coming, so apart from total defense, we don’t see any other approach that the Southampton players could have against an incomparably better quality opponent.

H2H

Manchester City has won four times at the Etihad Stadium in their last five games. In the previous match a year ago, it was 0:0.

Injuries and suspensions

Manchester City: Phillips, Stones and Walker.

Manchester City vs. Southampton Prediction

Considering Haaland’s playing lately, everything says that the Southampton team is in for a disaster. However, on Saturday, they will face a match against a team that is practically “drowning,” and that is in dire need of points, so we believe that lightly underestimating the opponent could be a trap for the favored Manchester City team.

Southampton is a team with goalscoring problems and cannot match a much more powerful opponent in terms of offensive quality, so we expect the visiting players to focus maximum attention on the defensive segment of the game. They have shown quite a few times that they can completely slow down the rhythm of the game, and if they play this game in that rhythm, there is an excellent chance that Manchester City will end a series of highly effective games.
