Man City Vs Southampton Free Tips [2nd Nov]
Manchester City host Southampton on Saturday afternoon (November 2), with the Etihad Stadium being one of the last places Southampton want to visit after their 9-0 mauling by Leicester.
The Saints may well have to lose their halos if they’re to get anything out of a game they lost 6-1 last season, and there’s a gut feeling that it could be another goal-fest in Manchester.

Manchester City vs Southampton Match Details
Manchester City vs Southampton takes place at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 2 November and kicks-off at 3.00pm.
Manchester City Form
Manchester City have shown some weaknesses this season, especially when losing at home to Wolves. But the bare result of the game didn’t reflect City’s early dominance in that match which included 18 shots and more than three-quarters of the possession. But it’s goals that count.
City also couldn’t put Tottenham to bed earlier in the season, when Tottenham held City to a 2-2 draw despite their goal being under siege for the last half an hour of the game.
But City have shown their class on three occasions at home this season, with an 8-0 win over Watford, 4-0 win over Brighton and, most recently, a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
Southampton have been hopeless at home this season, collecting just one point from their five matches. But their away form is much better thanks to wins over Sheffield United and Brighton and a draw against Wolves. They also pushed Tottenham all the way and were unlucky to lose that match 2-1.
Manchester City vs Southampton Head-To-Heads
Manchester City and Southampton have played each other 30 times in the Premier League and, despite the fact that City have only become a dominant force over the last few years. They still boast a far superior record.
City have won 17 of the 30 games, whilst Southampton have won just seven. More worrying for Southampton is City’s recent dominance and City are looking to make it six wins on the bounce against the Saints.
City took complete control last year when winning 6-1 at home and 3-1 at St Mary’s, though that was the third time in the last four matches that Southampton had scored in defeat.
