Manchester City News and Form – Will City beat Southampton easily?

There were no problems at home for Man City on the weekend as they beat Aston Villa 3-0 in league action. That moved them on to a three-match winning streak in all competitions. The Citizens have bagged a total of 10 goals in their last three games. It has been two clean sheets in their last three games in total. But they have conceded in two of their last three on home soil. Still, Southampton don’t appear to be a major threat to the reigning titleholders.

Man City 3-0 Correct Score


On the weekend, Manchester City will welcome Southampton back to the Etihad in league action. That is going to be a more important game for City than this one. The Citizens have taken a home record of W5 D1 L1 this season in all competitions. They have produced at least two goals in all but one of their home fixtures this season. In the last round of the EFL Cup, Manchester City went to Preston and took a 3-0 win there. It has been nine straight wins for City in the Carabao Cup (home and away including penalties) and they have taken seven clean sheets in that sequence.

  • Southampton were hammered 9-0 by Leicester on Friday
  • Man City have scored at least two goals in all but one home game this season


Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints upset Man City?

There is no way that Southampton will be looking forward to this week. They have this game against Man City and then face them in league action again on the weekend. On Friday Southampton were smashed 9-0 at St Mary’s in the Premier League by Leicester. That’s four games without a win in any competition for Southampton now (D1 L3). Southampton have only failed to score in two games in all competitions this season.

Southampton opened their League Cup campaign with a 1-0 away win at Fulham, and then eased to a big 4-0 win at Portsmouth in the last round. Both teams have hit the back of the net in four of Southampton’s last six games. Can they at least get on the scoresheet at the Etihad? This is just no easy game for Southampton. It will probably get harder on the weekend. The Saints have four wins in their last five away games in the competition (including penalties). They took three clean sheets in their last five competitive away games.

Manchester City v Southampton Predictions

Man City to win: It should be as routine as you like for Manchester City. They will probably go harder at the weekend’s league clash with Southampton than in this one. Either way, it isn’t too likely that the visitors will get into this. Home win to nil.
