Man City vs Southampton: Predictions
Manchester City could move one step closer to making it five Premier League titles in 10 seasons after losing out emphatically to Liverpool last season. However, after City’s 21 Premier League consecutive win record came crashing to an end with a 2-0 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday.
Southampton’s form this year is the polar opposite as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side with just one win in their last 10 Premier League games since their victory over Liverpool on 4 January. Hasenhuttl’s side did record a win on the weekend against bottom-side Sheffield United in a 2-0 win.
Danny Ings has only scored twice since the turn of the year after starting the season with seven goals all before Christmas. The English striker would have been hoping to hit a run of form with only 11 games left this season in an attempt to make Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros tournament. However, Ings was forced off on Saturday with a suspected muscle injury.
City will be looking for an instant reaction following their derby defeat and the Saints could prove the perfect side for them to face considering they have won seven of their last eight Premier League games against Southampton.

Man City vs Southampton: Match Stats
Raheem Sterling is closing down Ilkay Gundogan as City’s top scorer this season. The England international has scored nine times this season which is just two behind the German midfielder on 11 goals. The 26-year-old is well off his last three season’s tallies of 18, 17 and 20 goals in the Premier League, but the way Guardiola’s side are playing he will be targetting another five goals at least for the season with 10 games to go.
No side has kept more clean sheets (15) than City this season. Aston Villa and Chelsea have both record 13. The introduction of Ruben Dias has helped Guardiola to tighten up his defence which is evident as they have also conceded the fewest goals (17) this season with Chelsea (25) and Tottenham (27) their closest challengers.
