Manchester City vs. Southampton Match Analysis and Prediction

After having their 21 unbeaten streaks in the Premier League come to a grueling stop, Manchester City continues their hopes of securing the current title when they welcome Southampton home. The match schedules for Wednesday at Eithad Stadium with a kickoff at 9 pm.

The Premier League leaders lost 2-0 in the Manchester Derby against rivals Manchester United. Despite their last defeat, the Citizens sit 11 points clear at the top of the table. Southampton received their first win after ten outings. The Saints remain seven points clear of the relegation zone ahead of this midweek clash.

It was a pretty frustrating night for Pep Guardiola as he saw his side end their 21 unbeaten streaks in a Manchester Derby. The side was only six wins away from a world record of consecutive wins for a top flight-club in all competitions held by The New Saints.

Bruno Fernandez put the Red Devils with a penalty spot following a Gabriel Jesus’ challenge less than two minutes into the game. Luke Shaw finished off the match with a second-half strike. It marked the first defeat for Pep in 28 games in all competitions that date back to November 2020.

Guardiola will be quick for a swift response for his players against a Saints side who find winning ways last weekend. The Saints previously lost eight of their last nine matches to slide down the division.
