Predicted Manchester City and Southampton line-ups

Here is how we predict Manchester City and Southampton will line up for this weekend’s match:

To be played on Sunday 24th May 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Odds: Man City 4/7, Draw 7/2, Southampton 4/1

Manchester City and Southampton go head-to-head at the Etihad Stadium this Sunday with the Blues currently second in the Premier League table and the Saints seventh.

City will be disappointed to have lost their title to Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho’s side romping home with ease, while Southampton can reflect on a fine campaign even if they did ultimately miss out on a top-four finish that looked a possibility for so long.

Last time out City defeated Swansea city 4-3 with Yaya Toure the star of the show, while Southampton smashed Aston Villa for six and saw Sadio Mane score the fastest hat-trick in Premier League history in the process.

In early team news, City are without Samir Nasri but other than that they have a full squad to choose from.
