Manchester City 1/5 to beat Southampton in Wednesday’s Premier League clash
Competition: Premier League
Market: Manchester City to beat Southampton
Odds: 1/5 @ Bet365
The Premier League is back already as the dust has barely been able to settle on the weekend’s games before a glut of fixtures starts again. This is just a taste of the hectic schedule that awaits in December, with the festive period always a hugely entertaining time. With this in mind, Manchester City host Southampton on Wednesday.
Manchester City have been in sublime form this season and barring a single draw, they have won 12 times. 42 goals scored and just eight conceded is an outstanding total, and it shows that they are supremely talented across the pitch. They currently have an eight-point lead at the top, but they were indebted to a late Raheem Sterling goal in their game against Huddersfield, but it displayed that they have the backbone to go with their incredibly slick play when things are going well.
For Southampton, things have been steady if unspectacular this season. The Saints currently sit in 10th in the league, winning four games, drawing four and losing five times. They would be far closer to the relegation zone had it not have been for their thumping win over Everton on Sunday, with the Toffees no match for Southampton. They currently sit six points clear of West Ham in 18th, and they will be desperate to continue to build upon this gap, but they face exceptionally stern opposition in the form of City, who have been incredible this season. With this in mind, we are backing City to win with odds of 1/5 from Bet365.
