Man City vs Southampton preview & prediction

Match preview

Manchester City welcome Southampton to the Etihad after back-to-back trouncing of their opponents in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Last time out Man City recorded a 5-0 victory over Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League roll out of a slew of fixtures. Before then Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored three-game wonders against Man United in their previous league match.

Southampton have lost three games in a row, and this trip to Manchester will be a tough test for them. 

Joe Aribo’s 49 minutes goal in Southampton’s previous league game against Everton wasn’t enough as they quickly overturned when Conor Coady and Dwight McNeil scored in a 3-minute span to ensure they lost the match.
