Manchester City have had a tough run of fixtures of late, taking on Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea in their last 4 outings. But with a return of just 5 points from those fixtures, they are in need of a run of wins to secure their place in the Premier League’s top 4.
Their search for their next all-important 3 points begins at Southampton, as they face a Saints side that have just recorded back-to-back Premier League wins. A tough fixture for sure, but will Pep’s men come out on top?
|ATTACKING FORM AVERAGES|
|DEFENSIVE FORM AVERAGES|
Our Ultimate Form Guide (above) suggests that they have an excellent chance of doing exactly that, with City topping their hosts in 12 out of 15 key statistical areas over their last 10 games.
In attack, City are beginning to hit something resembling top gear. Their average of 2.2 goals per game is excellent, as is a 20% conversion rate. Southampton’s record is by no means shabby, but it’s not quite at the same level.
And defensively that story continues – Southampton’s record good, City’s record better. Both sides have just 3 clean sheets in their last 10 but with an average of 1.3 goals against, it’s City who edge it.
Overall, this by no means looks like a walkover for Pep’s men, but in their current form they should expect to come away victorious. The smart money is on City to take all 3 points.
