Manchester City News and Form – WIll Man City beat Southampton?

It was a 3-0 home win that Man City collected last weekend over Aston Villa. That is back to back clean sheet by the Citizens in the league now. It pushed City’s home form to W3 D1 L1 for this campaign. They have averaged 3.4 goals per home fixture this season and despite their defensive issues, City have still conceded at under a goal per home game.

With that strong defensive record, 80% of their league home games have made it over 2.5 goals. There is little surprise there given the scoring power that they have. City have bagged three clean sheets in their five home games and will likely be backed heavily to get another in this one. City have scored at least two goals in four of their five games at home in the league. They have been ahead at the half time break in three.

City are generally strong starters to matches and they have scored five times this season within the opening fifteen minutes of home fixtures. They like to dominate from the off. All of the league victories (home and away) that the Citizens have earned this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. They have taken a win in all but two of their last 14 Premier League home fixtures now (D1 L1). Is another on the way?

Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints upset City at the Etihad?

Southampton will want to wipe out last weekend’s action from the memories as quickly as possible. After being reduced to 10 men early on at St Mary’s against Leicester, Southampton conceded 9 goals. Their defence has really fallen apart in their recent form as they have now conceded at least two goals in four of their last five played in the top flight.

The Saints are without a clean sheet in five and have conceded a massive tally of 19 goals in their last five. Southampton have two wins under their belt this season and they were both away from home (D1 L2). So that’s a positive, but this is a nightmare of an away fixture for them. They don’t get much tougher than this. This will be Southampton’s first game this season away at one of the so-called Big Six.

Out on the road, this season the Saints have scored five goals, conceding just six. So that’s not too bad. It has been a clean sheet in 40% of their road games which they have picked up. The Saints have also been level at half time in all but one of their away games (L1). But now after their loss against Leicester, the Saints have the worst defensive record in the league, only two teams have scored fewer league goals than they have done.
