Free tips Premier League Tips: Southampton v Man City (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Manchester City head to the Stadium of Light in search of back-to-back wins in the Premier League, but mid-table Southampton stand in their way.

Here are our betting tips and predictions for Saturday’s late game.


Southampton v Man City Prediction

City to win at 3/4 with William Hill


Southampton v Man City Best Bet

City to win and over 2.5 goals at 6/4 with Bet365


Southampton v Man City Past Meetings

City have won four of the last six games against the south-coast club. However, they lost last season’s clash at the Stadium of Light 4-2 and were held to a 0-0 draw at home back in October.


Southampton v Man City Stats

Southampton have won six home matches from a possible 14 this season, while over 2.5 goals has happened in 43% of those.

Man City have won 10 of 16 away matches, while over 2.5 goals has happened in 75% of those.


Southampton Team News

Oriol Romeu misses the match through suspension, having picked up 10 yellow cards. However, Manolo Gabbiadini, Sofiane Boufal and Steven Davis could all return to the squad.


Man City Team News

Pep Guardiola has no new injury worries. He remains without long-term absentee Ilkay Gundogan (out for the season) and Gabriel Jesus and Bacary Sagna who should be fit by the end of the month.


Reason for Southampton v Man City Bets

Manchester City eased past Hull last weekend to end a four-game winless run in the Premier League. They’ll be seeking another morale-boosting three points ahead of a tricky period, which includes an FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal and a league clash with rivals United.

Saturday’s opponents Southampton are coming off the back of an impressive victory at the Hawthorns. Whilst their season ambition of securing a European place may now seem unachievable, they continue to play out entertaining matches.

Saints’ fans will fondly recall last season’s visit of City – a match they won 4-2, largely thanks to the brilliance of Sadio Mane. The Citizens were in a similar situation at that stage of the season, sitting in fourth place just above United.

There’s unlikely to be a repeat result, however. Last season, the Saints were fighting for sixth place with West Ham – this season, they’re fighting for 10th. City meanwhile are in one of the tightest battles for the top four in recent years, and whilst previous results may not have gone their way, they haven’t looked short of motivation.

Back the away side to make amends from last year. Odds for an away win can be found at 3/4 with William Hill. The Saints are unlikely to sit back and play for a draw, so it should be an open, entertaining game. Seven of their last nine games have involved over 2.5 goals, while 75% of City’s away games have had over 2.5 goals. Back an away win and over 2.5 goals at 6/4 with Bet365.
