Brace yourself for a battle between two clubs who currently occupy the 2nd and 3rd spots on the Premier League table. Who will win? Read our latest Southampton vs Manchester City preview for the latest updates!
Southampton started this Premier League season in a surprisingly strong fashion and have defied many odds to come to the club’s current 2nd place positioning on the table today. There were even rumours or tip-offs prior to the start of the season that Southampton would be one of the teams that would likely face relegation. This weekend, the Saints of Southampton will be hosting Manchester City, who are just 2 points behind them in the 3rd spot on the Premier League table. If Manchester City is able to pull through with an away win in this match, the club will have the chance to leapfrog their way upward in the table and that is an entirely possible scenario as Manchester City’s team morale recently received a healthy boost thanks to a huge mid-week win over Bayern Munich. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero propelled the club to victory with a hat-trick against their European counterparts but will Aguero be capable of overcoming Southampton’s tight and solid defense this Sunday?
Prediction: Southampton wins 2-1
