Manchester City is one of the best football teams in the world at the moment and has been in supreme form. It smashed six goals past RB Leipzig in its previous match and already has two Premier League games with 5 goals scored. To say that it is a goal-scoring machine would be an understatement. This next match against Southampton is a potentially slippery one. While Southampton has not won a single game in the English Premier League 2021-22 season, it will have good memories of beating Manchester City in the 2020 season.
Southampton fans may point to the fact it scored 8 goals against Newport County in the English Carabao Cup but that is of no help while analyzing this match. The quality of Manchester City is just a different prospect altogether.
Match Prediction and football betting tips for Manchester City vs Southampton English Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester on the 18th of September 2021.
Manchester City may be a bit tired going into this match against SOuthampton, as alluded by Pep Guardiola, but we do not think there is going to be any respite for Southampton. We expect some rotation in the players as Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus may get a bigger role upfront. We also saw Kevin de Bryne and Phil Fiden sharing duties in the previous match as they return to full fitness. That is something that could continue as well.
There is no aspect of the squad in which SOuthampton comes close to Manchester City and while anything can happen in football, we are certainly not going to be betting on the upset here. Manchester City should be able to romp to victory at home in none out of ten matches against Southampton.
Bet on Manchester City to win.
We think the run of goal-scoring form that City has been in recently makes this a great bet to consider. It has scored 17 goals in its previous four matches including five or more goals in three out of its previous four matches. Southampton does not have the best defense and it could be ripped open by the Manchester City attack.
