Southampton Vs Man City Prediction 19/12/20
The Saints two defeats at home have come to Spurs and Man Utd, showing that they can't quite mix it with the big boys, despite being 3rd in the Premier League.
They do have a great chance to claim a scalp of one of the big boys here though, as City look there for the taking.
That said, if the real City turn up at last, I feel it will be another defeat for Southampton. So that means I'm effectively having a bet on which Man City turns up.
The Saints have scored 25 goals this season, and conceded 18. They play an attacking brand of football, and I think that might just suit City.
I'm not confident enough to back City to win, but I do think there will be goals. Therefore I'm going with Over 2.5 Goals at 8/13.
