Manchester City v Southampton Match Preview & Trends

This is the meeting of two sides who both had a change of fortune in their last premier league outing with Saints winning after a lost spell and City losing Manchester bragging rights with defeat at home to United ending their impressive winning streak. The Cityzens will be looking to immediately bounce back and make the derby result a one-off and not the start of a Liverpool-esque blip. On the flip side, Southampton will want to back up their victory over basement side Sheffield United with a result at the Etihad nut they will no doubt fear a backlash from the table toppers. Despite the 0.2 home defeat, City are still 11 points clear of Manchester United at the top of the table. Saints are trailing fifth-placed Everton by 13 points for a spot in the Europa League so every point is precious, especially without injured top scorer Danny Ings. In the reverse fixture earlier in the season Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the game as Manchester City won 1.0 at St.Mary’s. Manchester City have won 71% of their matches and have scored in 93% of their home matches. Southampton’s 79% conceding rate paints a glum picture against a normally free-scoring opponent on the rebound.

Key trends

Southampton have scored 64% of their goals in the first half.

Manchester City have picked up an average of 2.33 Points Per Game in their 15 matches played at home

Southampton’s average Points Per Game in their 14 away games is 1.14.
