Manchester City travel to St. Mary’s Stadium looking to post a seventh consecutive triumph in the Premier League H2Hs with Southampton.
Interestingly, none of Southampton’s 11 Premier League games this calendar year has ended in a stalemate (W5, L6), with seven of those results (win/loss) seeing the winner on the day keep a clean sheet. Indeed, the Saints are used to tight affairs at home, as nine of their last 11 league fixtures held at this venue finished separating the sides by under 1.5 goals (W4, D1, L6). The division’s slowest starters, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have shipped the opening goal in 12 of 16 Premier League home games this campaign, rescuing just five points from applicable matches (W1, D2, L9). Southampton now face an uphill task of improving a disappointing home record, as they take on a side they’ve lost to in three of their last top-flight home H2Hs.
On the other hand, the visitors go into this encounter on the back of a 4-0 dismantling of Liverpool, which now means that none of their last nine league matches has ended in a draw (W6, L3). Notably, though, eight of those nine results have seen the winner on the day preserve a blank sheet, with five of them featuring under 2.5 goals. In turn, just of City’s 16 Premier League away games this season has produced a stalemate (W9, L6), with seven of their nine road successes yielding a margin of two goals or more. Indeed, the Sky Blues have netted a league-low 36 goals on the road on an average of 2.25 goals per Premier League trip.
