Southampton vs Manchester City Betting Tip & Odds
Both of these two sides will come into this game in excellent spirits after Southampton’s safety was all but assured with their 1-0 victory against Swansea City in their last game. That victory put The Saints three points clear of The Swans and unless Swansea City can engineer a nine goal swing then Mark Hughes’s Southampton side will stay in the Premier League. Meanwhile, things have been a whole lot easier for Pep Guardiola and his all conquering Manchester City who are now aiming to hit the 100-point mark for the season.
- When: 3:00PM (UK), Sunday, May 13th, 2018
- Where: St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton, England
Southampton have finally found their form when it really mattered and two wins and two draws from their last four matches look to have been enough to ensure they stay in the top flight. Substitute Manolo Gabbiadini grabbed the all important goal on Tuesday night and he will be pushing for a starting spot ahead of Charlie Austin on Sunday. Mark Hughes just needs to ensure that his side don’t suffer a heavy defeat in this one and they can put this horrible season behind them and start building for next year.
Manchester City have barely let up since winning the Premier League title with Pep Guardiola’s side winning four of their last five matches. City picked up a comfortable 3-1 win against Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night as Yaya Toure captained the side in what was basically a testimonial match. Raheem Sterling and Ederson missed out on Wednesday and will be keen to get a run out on the final day of the season. Sergio Aguero and David Silva will miss the game through injury though.
- Manchester City can become the first Premier League side ever to reach 100-points on Sunday with a win.
- Only bottom side, West Bromwich Albion, have a worse home record than Southampton this season. The Saints have won just four games in front of their own fans.
- Manchester City’s 105 goals and 31 wins are both record highs in the Premier League.
Southampton vs Manchester City Prediction
I’m sure this game will have the feel of friendly game on Sunday with neither sets of players wanting to risk injury ahead of the World Cup this summer. Manchester City will be keen to finish a fantastic season on a high and reach that coveted 100-point mark and I’m backing them to pick up their 32nd victory of the season on Sunday. Swansea City need a miracle to catch Southampton and I’m sure Mark Hughes will set his side up to avoid a heavy defeat in this one.
Southampton vs Manchester City Betting Tips (Nairabet)
Manchester City start this game as 1,44 favourites, whilst a home win for The Saints is priced up at 7, with the draw available at 4,6. I think Manchester City will win here and I think they’ll do it without conceding, so I’m backing Manchester City to Win to Nil at 2,625. Gabriel Jesus didn’t manage to find the net against Brighton, but I fancy him to open the scoring in this one at 4,33. Another great bet is Raheem Sterling to Score at Anytime, which is available at Evens. The England winger has found the back of the net 18 times this season and after a rest in midweek, he will be raring to go.
Manchester City to Win to Nil – 2,65 (Nairabet)
