Southampton vs Manchester City Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 5 July 2020. Kick-off 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s men delivered a master-class the last match-day over Liverpool, making it clear that the title-race next season is going to be a fierce one. The fact that they missed out on the three-peat seems to have reinvigorated the squad.

Southampton vs Manchester City: Prediction
The Saints recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Watford. The guests had completely outplayed their rivals. Despite the late attempt by Watford to make a comeback, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men had controlled proceedings throughout the ninety minutes.
