Southampton take on Man City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. The visitors look a long way off the standards they have set in recent years and have drawn three of their last five matches.

Southampton Form


Southampton fans will be delighted with their team’s performance in the opening third of the Premier League season.

Saints are currently 3rd in the Premier League table and sit just four points behind leaders Liverpool after 13 matches.

Throwing away leads has been an issue for them though, which is something they have done in three of their last five league games.

It happened again against Arsenal on Wednesday, as Theo Walcott’s opener was met with a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equaliser. Southampton drew 1-1 in a game they may feel they should’ve won after Gabriel’s equaliser.

Southampton Injuries & Team News


Southampton currently have no injuries or suspensions to contend with and will likely name an unchanged lineup from their draw with Arsenal.

Man City Form


Man City have been drawing games far too often of late, with three of their last five matches ending all square.

The first of the draws came against Porto, before successive wins against Fulham and Marseille.

Pep Guardiola’s team then played out a bore draw against Man United before their shock 1-1 draw with West Brom last time out.

Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring for City but Ruben Dias’ own goal saw the Baggies take home a point.

Man City Injuries & Team News


Man City will once again be without defenders Eric Garcia and Oleksandr Zinchenko through injury.

Head to Head


Man City have the slight edge in this fixture with 36 wins to Southampton’s 32. There have also been 25 draws shared between the clubs.

The previous meeting ended in a 1-0 win to Southampton back in July.

Match Up


Southampton have been in terrific form of late, while Man City just haven’t quite looked like themselves, making the odds somewhat surprising. Saints also won when these sides last met six months ago at St. Mary’s.
