Man City: On Fire
This is City’s third home game in a row, and they head into it having netted 11 goals across thumping victories over Manchester United and FC Copenhagen. The world-class striker Erling Haaland netted his third hat-trick of the season in that 6-3 derby victory and would probably have grabbed another had Pep Guardiola not taken him off at half-time in the Champions League match against Copenhagen.
He became the first player to score three successive Premier League home hat-tricks last Sunday as City humiliated their local rivals, Manchester United. He’s nine goals away from last season’s golden boot winning total, and there are 30 games left in the English top-flight league. He’s a goal machine and will definitely write history in the EPL.
Erling Haaland has been rated a 10/10 in L’Equipe after his performance in the Manchester Derby. This is a rare occurrence, with only 14 players ever receiving a perfect score rating. Another outstanding achievement for the Citizens is that Phil Foden became the youngest player to reach 50 goals under Pep Guardiola, surpassing Lionel Messi.
The Citizens are sitting second in the Premier League standings, trailing leaders Arsenal by just one point. They might end this round as leaders as Arsenal is hosting Liverpool on Sunday, and they might drop points. They scored 20 goals in four home games, and we will continue to include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Southampton: Struggling for Points
Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s men enjoyed a decent start to the domestic campaign but have hit a bump in recent weeks, losing three games in a row to drop dangerously close to the red zone. They are sitting 16th in the standings, just one point above the danger zone.
They need to start adding more points to their season tally, but it would be a major upset if Southampton picked up anything at the Etihad against a Manchester City side in such amazing form. Che Adams is Southampton’s top scorer this season with two Premier League goals. Romeo Lavia and Tino Livramento are both out of action, but there are no other injury issues for Hasenhuttl’s team.
If you’re betting online, you should start fading them because the confidence level is low inside the dressing room. Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl insists he is not under any pressure at St Mary’s despite reports suggesting otherwise. The Austrian has divided support within the fan base and last week became the market leader as the Premier League manager most likely to lose their job next.
Man City vs Southampton Head-to-Head
Southampton is on a three-fixture losing streak, and they were winless in 22 of their past 27 overall games. The Saints have a decent record against Guardiola’s side in the last few seasons, with just three of the last six mutual encounters ending with victories for the Citizens. Both Premier League matches ended in draws last season, although Manchester City strolled to a 4-1 victory at St Mary’s in the FA Cup. The Citizens have averaged five goals on home soil this season, while Southampton scored just three goals in four away games.

Man City vs Southampton Prediction
The hosts enter this clash as heavy favorites priced at -725 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at four.
Kevin De Bruyne was rested in midweek but will take his usual place in Guardiola’s midfield for this one. It’s hard to find value on any Manchester City bets, so we must dig deep to find a decent bet. We’ve seen at least three goals in the first half in three of the last four home matches, so we expect at least two goals in the first half, no matter who scores.
