Manchester City have been in dire form and have won just twice in 22 subsequent Premiership matches. Their last match was seemingly a hard fixture against Tottenham but they thrashed the Spurs with only one goal. They will come into this home game with the aim of continuing their unbeaten run in their campaign to lift the league title at the end of the season.

Kyler Walker, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Rihad Mahrez and Sergio Aguero were among those to start on the bench on Thursday in the EFL Cup clash with Fulham. Additionally, David Silva was left out completely. We should see them feature in this home game on Sunday.

The Saints failed to convert most of their chances to goals in their last EPL fixture at home against Newcastle last weekend. They are just 2 points from the relegation zone and may not get the chance to add some point to their tally in this matchup.

Southampton have played out goalless draws in their last two EPL matches. Keeping a clean sheet in two matches may sound an achievement for the Saints. However, it is self-damaging since they have not climbed to their rightful place in the league standings. They will truly be daunted as they hit the road to Etihad Stadium because they know the kind of opposition they have to measure up against.

Manchester City vs Southampton: Head-to-Head

  • Manchester City has won the last has won the last 3 consecutive h2h meetings.
  • In the last 5 h2h encounters, the Citizens have won 3 matches, Southampton have won once and one draw.
  • Southampton has not won in any of the last 6 h2h meetings at the Etihad.

Manchester City vs Southampton: Prediction

This looks like a sure win for the home side. However, they need to approach the game without self-confidence. The visitors will employ a more defensive mode of play and will make it hard for the citizens to clinch a win easily. Remember, they have been able to keep a clean sheet in their last two games and may want to maintain the same, although it may not work out! The home team will win this one but we cannot see them net more than 3 goals.
