Stubborn Saints could prove awkward for City

Pep Guardiola and Sergio Aguero celebrate Manchester City's win in Naples
1 of 1

Premier League
8pm Wednesday

The stats point to a City win, but Southampton could prove awkward opponents for Pep Guardiola’s title favourites.

Soton, who drew this fixture 1-1 last season, have been buoyed by thrashing Everton 4-1 and have given little away defensively for the past few campaigns.

Huddersfield demonstrated with a work ethic and organisation (plus a David Silva off-day) that it’s possible to thwart Manchester City.

Southampton will have to ride their luck but they have outplayed Manchester United this season and could also give City a game.

Recommendation
Southampton & draw double chance
1pt 4-1 general
