Southampton vs Manchester City Tips
Betting Tip: Manchester City Under 3.5 Goals
Manchester City have a chance at a domestic treble still and they’ve always done pretty well in the domestic cup competitions under Pep Guardiola.
That being said, they face a side who they have failed to beat on both counts this season in the league. Southampton have seemingly had their number and they’ve deserved both draws they have got from the Blue Moon this term.
You have to worry about Saints after their dismal showing at home to Watford last week though. Silly mistakes that they made are likely to be punished by the visitors so no doubt Ralph Hassenhuttl will be drilling that into his players.
There’s a good chance that Guardiola fields his strongest eleven for this one given the international break comes straight after. If they can play like they have done against mid-table sides this season they should have too much quality for their hosts.
The away win does look a touch too short though so taking Manchester City to win and under 3.5 goals looks a clever way in at odds-against quotes.
