Southampton vs Manchester City 11.01.2023
Manchester City will be looking to remain in contention for a 5th straight EFL triumph when they travel to face Southampton on Wednesday. Having hammered Chelsea in the FA Cup, City would be gunning to be in a vantage position for a domestic double this season. As they continue to hunt Arsenal for a place at the summit of the league, navigating cup games would be crucial towards achieving another dominant season in English football for Pep’s men.
Meanwhile, Southampton are having a terrible season so far. With just 3 league wins in 18 matches, the Saints are rock bottom in danger zone with the possibility of Championship football looming. As they continue to find their rhythm under new gaffer Nathan Jones, scaling a huge hurdle such as this one would be a morale booster for the lads.
While Cup games are known for upsets and the unexpected, it is hard to picture Southampton pulling any strings here. In fact, in their last 2 meetings against City, Southampton let in 8 goals, scoring just once. In those 2 games, the opening half produced two goals each. Based on this, we are expecting at least 2 goals in the first half of this match.
Main tip: 1st Half Ov. 1.5 Goals (go to tip details)
