Manchester City are aiming to secure their 13th straight English Premier League win on their visit to Southampton on Saturday.

The Citizens recorded a 1-0 win over Chelsea in their last game to continue to lead the league with 56 points from 22 games. Kevin De Bruyne's goal in the 70th minute was enough for Man City to take the win.

Riyad Mahrez, who is currently playing in the Africa Cup of Nations, will not feature in this contest.

Southampton are aiming to bounce back after suffering a 3-1 defeat to Wolverhampton in the previous round.

Only James Ward-Prowse scored for the Saints, who dropped to 12th in the league with 24 points from 21 games.

Will Smallbone, Tino Livramento and Alex McCarthy will not play for Ralph Hasenhüttl's side due to injury while Moussa Djenepo is playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The first meeting between Southampton and Man City this season resulted in a 0-0 draw.

Southampton vs Manchester City Tips

1. Match Result - Man City to win

The first meeting between Man City and Southampton this season ended in a goalless draw but we don’t expect a repeat of that here especially with the Citizens' recent form.

2. Total Goals - Over 2.5

We are backing over 2.5 goals in this contest.

3. Both Teams To Score - Yes

Both teams have netted in their recent matches so we expect the same here.

4. Anytime Goalscorer - Kevin De Bruyne

The Belgian was Man City’s lone goal scorer in their win over Chelsea and he has netted six times in the Premier League this season. 

5. Correct Score - Man City 2-1

Two goals should be enough for Man City but they are likely to concede on the road.


We are backing Manchester City to extend their winning run.
