Today match prediction for Man City – Southampton
Manchester City welcomes Southampton at the Etihad Stadium with just one thought in mind – to return on the top of the Premier League and to gain a two point advantage in front of Liverpool. Let’s take a look at this clash in our today match predictions.
After Liverpool’s draw against Arsenal on Saturday, Manchester City have the chance to gain some advantage in front of the the Reds. Right now City are 2nd in the league with 26 points, just a point behind the leader Liverpool and with a game in hand. This their chance to be alone on the top.
Manchester City are unbeaten since the start of the season with 8 wins and 2 draws. Just as it was expected, Pep Guardiola’s side is showing a very high level of performance. The only wrong steps of the champions so far came during the visits to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool. So far City are very convincing. Many pundits think that they are the main favourites for the title.
In their last fixture in the Premier League Manchester City enjoyed a tough, but very important 1-0 win over Tottenham at the Wembley. The champions opened the score after just 6 minutes of play, when Riyad Mahrez scored after an assist from Raheem Sterling.
Southampton are 16th in the Premier League with just 7 points won so far. The Saints are 16th in the standings with just 2 points more than the 18th Cardiff City. Mark Hughes’ team really needs to win some points, but can they do it against the strongest team in the country? That’s a valid question.
These are our today match prediction for the Premier League match between Manchester City and Southampton at the Etihad. It’d be a huge surprise if Guardiola’s team fails to win this one.
