Man City vs Southampton Predictions

Despite Man City’s loss in the derby at the weekend and Southampton winning away last time out, they should be able to comfortably dispatch the Saints.

  • Man City have won 21 of their last 22 matches (all competitions).
  • Southampton have lost 10 of their last 11 away matches at Man City (all competitions).
  • Southampton have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches (Premier League).
  • Southampton have failed to score in 2 of their last 3 away matches (Premier League).


Man City have a narrow historical edge over Southampton, winning 37 and drawing 25 times in 94 games between the sides. Saints have won 32 times.

Southampton have won 1 of the last 10 games against City. That win came in the reverse fixture last season.

The meeting between the two in December saw City take all three points through an early Raheem Sterling goal. 

Man City Form

Unbeatable Man City were finally conquered by their Manchester neighbours, as United brought an end to their 21-game winning streak in all competitions. 

The 2-0 defeat to United was their first loss since going down by the same score line to Tottenham, 28 games ago.

City will be confident that they can get themselves going again after an off-day. 

It was only their third loss of the season and each time they have been beaten, they have bounced straight back with a win.

Man City Injuries and Team News 

Nathan Ake remains a long-term injury issue but is closing in on a return.

Pep Guardiola is likely to continue to rotate his squad. He has made more changes to his starting eleven than any other manager in the Premier League this season. 

Southampton Form

Southampton’s victory against the seemingly doomed Sheffield United last time out ended a seven-game winless run away from home.

The win against the Blades came thanks to goals from Che Adams and a penalty from James Ward-Prowse. It followed a 1-0 away defeat to Everton.

This is the Saints' third away game in a row and they have the 5th worst form in the league on the road.

Southampton Injuries and Team News

Attacking duo Theo Walcott and Danny Ings remain a big loss to Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side and should remain out along with Michael Obafemi and Oriol Romeu.
