When is Southampton v Man City?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Sunday July 5.

What time does Southampton v Man City kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 7pm kick-off and is the last of four Premier League matches that day.

What is at stake?

It’s probably not going to catch the imagination of the neutral but will certainly be important to the two sides involved.

Manchester City walloped champions Liverpool 4-0 in their last match, highlighting that they feel they have a point to prove between now and the end of the season.

Southampton, meanwhile, have already reached the coveted 40-points so are not feeling any real pressure from below them in the table, but they’d absolutely like an extra three points to make sure.

Where can I watch Southampton v Man City?

The match will be broadcast by the BBC.

Is Southampton v Man City free-to-air?

It is, yes. The unusual circumstances of this season has seen the BBC able to broadcast live Premier League matches for the first time, and this is one of them.

What is the team news?

Manchester City have no new injury concerns ahead of this one and could have Eric Garcia back available. Sergio Aguero, however, is still missing following knee surgery.

Southampton are in really good shape too and report no fresh injury concerns.

What happened in the reverse match?

Southampton gave Man City a real scare when these two sides met earlier in the season. James Ward-Prowse opened the scoring for the Saints, but goals from Aguero and Kyle Walker in the last twenty minutes earned a 2-1 win for the Citizens.

What are the odds?

The bookies are not expecting home advantage to play much part in this one and have installed Man City as the 3/10 favourites. Southampton can be backed at 9/1, with the draw available at 9/2.
