Southampton vs Man City: Pep's men have too much power

Southampton vs Man City: Pep’s men have too much power

Southampton are looking up the table again after back-to-back wins boosted their hopes of a top-eight finish, leaving them four points behind eighth-placed West Brom with two games in hand.

Manchester City remain in the top four after they ended a run of four matches without a win, but Arsenal and Manchester United can still catch them.

They cannot afford to ease off but with questions mark about their defence still, we think City to win and both teams to score is the best bet from the Southampton vs Man City odds at 11/5.

A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds

Southampton could be forgiven for easing off at this stage of the season but last weekend’s 1-0 win at West Brom showed they are not on the beach yet.

Manager Claude Puel was delighted with the performance and hopes for more of the same this weekend. He said at The Hawthorns: “I think the spirit and attitude of the players was perfect. Now it’s important to keep this regularly and we will see against City for the next game. Of course, it’s a great challenge but it’s important to keep this confidence for this game.”

Their record against the top teams is poor though, with just one win in nine matches against teams in the top third of the table. They lost 4-1 at home to Tottenham and City should also have too much firepower.

Man City to beat Southampton can be backed at 7/10.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

City are back to winning ways but even when beating Hull, they could not manage a clean sheet after conceding a late consolation goal.

Both teams have scored in their last five matches in all competitions and both teams to score in the Southampton vs Man City betting is recommended at 31/50.

With City shipping goals, our final prediction is for Man City to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 at odds of 333/100.
