Southampton V Manchester City – Team News, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

Manchester City will want to get back on track quickly after two consecutive defeats.

Pep Guardiola’s side have lost their defensive solidity in recent games, having conceded five goals in their last two matches against Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

A trip to Southampton won’t be easy either with new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl having revived their fortunes since he took charge.

The Citizens will once again be without Fernandinho who continues to be plagued with a thigh injury. Captain Vincent Kompany is also a major doubt due to a muscular problem.

Gabriel Jesus could be fit to return against the Saints on Sunday. The Brazilian sat out the 2-1 loss to Leicester after picking up a knock.

Benjamin Mendy (knee), Claudio Bravo (Achilles) and Eliaquim Mangala (knee) remain out of contention.

For Southampton, Ryan Bertrand (back) is their only injury concern, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg returns from suspension after missing yesterday’s game against West Ham.

The bookies have City as favourites, and they are 10/29 odds-on at Unibet. A draw is 9/2 with 188BET while a Southampton victory is best priced at 9/1 with Coral.

Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face Southampton:

Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Danilo, De Bruyne, Gundogan, David Silva, Bernardo Silva, Aguero, Sterling
