Southampton Preview – Can the Saints upset the Premier League champions?

Southampton have had a solid season in the Premier League, picking up some eye-catching results along the way. However, after a trio of league and cup wins, the Saints have lost three on the trot in the league, conceding eight goals.

Southampton beat EFL Championship sides Swansea City and Coventry City in the first two rounds of the 2021-22 FA Cup. They then beat in-form West Ham United at home in the last 16, with Romain Perraud, James Ward-Prowse and Armando Broja getting the goals in a 3-1 success.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 0907 GMT, Saturday 19 March)

Southampton would love to end their three-game losing streak with a shock win over Man City in the FA Cup at the weekend. However, the bookies are not giving Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men too much hope, pricing the home victory at 9/1.

Manchester City Preview – Citizens to ease into last four?

Manchester City have some huge games on the horizon as they battle for the title in the Premier League and are through to the last eight of the UEFA Champions League. Still, Pep Guardiola would love to add another FA Cup to Man City’s glittering trophy cabinet.

The title race has been blown wide open after Liverpool’s stunning form. After the last batch of results, Man City are now just a point above the Reds. On Monday, City were held to a frustrating draw by Crystal Palace.

Southampton vs Manchester City Betting Advice

Southampton have held Man City to two draws in this season’s Premier League. Back in September, the Saints left the Etihad Stadium with a point after battling to a 0-0 draw. At St Mary’s in January, Kyle Walker-Peters’ early goal was cancelled out by Aymeric Laporte’s second-half effort.

This will be the first FA Cup meeting since the 2006-07 season. In that one, Darius Vassell, Joey Barton and DaMarcus Beasley scored in a 3-1 home success for City.


Key Facts – Southampton vs Manchester City Betting Tip

  • Southampton have held Man City to two draws this season
  • Man City have won eight of their last ten away games

Man City may have slipped up at Selhurst Park on Monday, but Pep’s superstars have hardly put a foot wrong on the road in recent months. They have won eight and drawn two of ten away fixtures since losing to RB Leipzig in the Champions League in December.

Man City should be too strong for Southampton here, so take a punt on the Citizens to win both halves at 7/4. We also like the look of 21/10 for City to win -2.
