Southampton vs Manchester City: Team News, Predictions, Betting & Match Odds

Liverpool pulled 10 points clear of City with a 5-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday, so a result on the South Coast is crucial for Pep Guardiola's side.

Manchester City will look to bounce back from three defeats in four Premier League games when they take on Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday.

Liverpool extended their lead over the champions to 10 points with a victory over Arsenal on Saturday, so City need to turn their form around after back-to-back losses against Crystal Palace and Leicester City respectively.

Southampton on the other hand are aiming to put further distance between themselves and the relegation places, and will take confidence from the fact they beat the Gunners at home only two weeks ago.
