However, a 1:1 draw left Southampton in third place in the standings. The Saints now have 20 points on their balance sheet and are four points behind the Liverpool leader and one point behind Tottenham. The situation at the top is generally tight. After all, from below at a distance of only three points there are four pursuers at once.
Southampton were one of the best away teams last season and are holding their status in the current championship. Although it should be noted that compared to the last championship, the "saints" were added in home matches. In the Premier League, Ralf Hasenh?ttl's wards have already played six matches at home and have beaten their opponents quite confidently in four of the last five. So, they sent two unanswered goals to the gates of Everton, Newcastle and West Brom and defeated Sheffield United in the last match at home with a score of 3:0.
In many respects, such a successful game of Southampton in the current championship is facilitated by the personnel situation. The "saints" do not have any porter in their composition.
For two rounds in a row, the "townspeople" have been losing points in draw matches. Moreover, if the draw with Manchester United can still be understood somehow, then the world with West Brom should be regarded as a clear failure. Manchester City's vaunted attack was able to crack just the defense of the championship's most permissive team once.
In away games, Manchester City do not have the same confidence. It seemed that after winning the opening match with Wolverhamton (3:1), there shouldn't be any particular problems with performance. However, as it turned out, it is the attack line that looks problematic on the opponents' fields. Judge for yourself, in the last five away matches they have only a minimal victory over Sheffield United (1:0), whereas apart from a draw with Manchester United, the townspeople shared points with West Ham (1:1) and Leeds (1:1) . They also lost to Tottenham (0:2). That is, Manchester City have only scored three goals in their last five away matches.
Due to injuries, Eric Garcia and Alexander Zinchenko will not be able to take part in the match.
Our prediction is both will score for 1.73 in BC 1xBet.
