Team News

Manchester City

  • Phil Foden made his first appearance of the season against RB Leipzig in midweek. However, it’s too early to expect him to start.
  • Because Aymeric Laporte and John Stones were both absent against Leipzig, Nathan Ake has a chance to start here. After all, Ake did score against Leipzig.
  • After making substitute appearances on Wednesday, Kyle Walker, Ilkay Gundogan, and Gabriel Jesus should all return to the starting XI.
  • Jack Grealish has started every game for Manchester City this season, so a rest may be incumbent at some point. Raheem Sterling, on the other hand, has only started one of their five games.

Manchester City possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Jesus, Torres, Grealish

Southampton

  • Shane Long returned to training on Wednesday after recovering from COVID-19.
  • But Stuart Armstrong and Theo Walcott are still going to be absent for the visitors.
  • Kyle Walker-Peters could fill in at right-back or left-back. Meanwhile, though, Jack Stephens and Mohammed Salisu appear to be Southampton’s preferred center-back pairing at the moment.
  • Che Adams is pushing for a recall after being absent from the squad for playing against West Ham last week. But given their task this weekend, it wouldn’t be surprising if Southamptonstick with one striker up front.
  • Finally, Nathan Tella could make a surprise start for the visiting team this weekend.

Southampton possible starting lineup: McCarthy; Livramento, Stephens, Salisu, Perraud; Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi; Redmond, Armstrong, Djenepo

Premier League Football Prediction – Manchester City vs Southampton

  • Manchester City defeated RB Leipzig with spectacular football results of 6-3 in midweek (football prediction). Pep Guardiola’s team has now scored five or more goals in three of their last four games. That’s not bad for a team that did not sign a striker in the offseason.
  • Southampton held West Ham to a 0-0 draw last weekend, giving them three consecutive Premier League draws. Plus, they have lost their last five away games against City.

Southampton have been a difficult nut to crack in recent weeks. That is particularly true for the second half of their match against Manchester United on August 22.

Man City, on the other hand, are in such good form right now that we expect Guardiola’s team to win. We wouldn’t be too suprised to see them score three more goals in another comfortable home victory.

Our Prediction: Manchester City 3-1 Southampton
