Southampton vs Man City is one of the Premier League’s Sunday highlights this week. Man City will have enjoyed their 4-0 win over Liverpool on Thursday night and they now need just five points from their final six games to guarantee a top-4 spot. But it must be so much fun to play alongside Kevin De Bruyne that surely the goals will continue to flow.
Plenty of punters will be happy to take short odds about a City side that has won its last seven matches in all competitions against the saints. But with Southampton having also hit three goals in two of their three games since the restart and, with neither team under any pressure, both teams to score offers a bit more value.
Recent past Southampton vs Man City head-to-heads also suggest that both teams are more likely to score than not. That result would have paid out in each of their last three encounters, with Southampton losing 2-1 and 3-1 at Maine Road in the league and Carabao Cup this season, while they also lost this fixture 3-1 last season. Indeed, both teams have scored in five of their last six matches.
Only Tottenham and Manchester United have stopped Man City scoring on their travels this season and, though Southampton have kept a couple of clean sheets in their last few games, it’s hard to see them keeping City’s strikers at bay.
Southampton have also got a decent record having scored in 10 of their 15 games home games this season and, while it’s a slight worry they couldn’t score against Arsenal, City’s style of play means the Saints should get a few chances against a team they have a good record of scoring against.
