Football Betting Match Preview: English Premier League - Southampton vs Manchester City 30/12/2018


Southampton is currently ranked 16th in the Premier League with 3 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses, 3 points higher than the relegation zone.

The team has occasional good performances, but has not been able to last long. After two consecutive wins, the Saints lost 1-2 at home to West Ham United in the middle of the week and were equalised by their opponents less than 10 minutes after they scored.

This is the Saint's third home defeat of the season. They drew Manchester United and defeated Arsenal this month, and was not intimidated by strong teams.

Southampton's offensive performance has improved recently, with only one clean sheet in the last nine rounds of the league. The arrival of new coach  has enlightened Redmond, who has a record of two goals and two assists in the league. Among them, two goals and one assists were scored in the last three battles, and the situation was quite good.

Manchester City

Manchester City, which had a strong season, started to go downhill in December, losing three games in four league rounds. In the last two games, they failed to get even one point against Crystal Palace and Leicester City, which were not as good as them comparatively.

In midweek against the Fox, although Manchester City were first scored by Bernardo Silva, they were quickly equalized by Leicester City. City's sluggish defensive line lost the ball again and finally lost 2-1. So far, Manchester City has not had a clean sheet in the last nine official matches.

Manchester City, the most expensive defense in the Premier League and the iron wall built by Guodiola, played a key role in winning the title last season. But now it seems that this line of defense has gone down, pep must improve and come back strong.

Manchester City fell to third place, seven points behind Liverpool, after losing points in recent games. Manchester City also want to achieve the dream of defending the title. The first game of the New Year is a direct fight against Liverpool. Before that, the team must regain morale with a win. There is no doubt that the desire to win is there.

In the past, Manchester City have won four consecutive matches, including the first round of the season in which Saints were losing 6-1 at home. We shall see blue moon can regain the glory of the first round.
