Reason for Southampton vs Manchester City Predictions
In their last game, Southampton’s revival was cut short by Wolverhampton Wanderers, and they will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Manchester City. Going into this game, Southampton has registered 24 points and is in 12th place while City is top of the table with 56 points. Southampton is coming from a 3-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers, which left the team without a clean sheet in the last five matches. They have actually conceded two or more goals in three of their previous five games, and in the last seven meetings with Manchester City, Southampton has lost seven. James Ward-Prowse will be their main man in this game, having scored three times in the previous five matches. James Ward-Prowse plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Nathan Redmond enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Will Smallbone (Calf Injury), Tino Livramento (Knee Problems), and Alex McCarthy (Thigh Problems) will not be taking part for Southampton coach Ralph Hasenhüttl. Moussa Djenepo will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Manchester City is in great form and looks at odds on favorites to be crowned champions again unless they have a catastrophic collapse. Although the Reds have a game in hand, they are eleven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. Man City have won their last 12 league matches with an aggregate score of 34-7, and in this period, they have gained 13 more points than any other team. They also have an outstanding record against Southampton, having won eight of the last ten matches against them, although they have been held goalless in two of the previous four. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. Out of a mainly full-strength squad, there is just one fitness problem for the Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to be concerned about. Luka Ilic (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here. Riyad Mahrez is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Manchester City is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
