Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester City and Southampton will play against each other on Saturday afternoon in the Etihad stadium at 15:00 for the 14th round in the English Premier League. Manchester City totally lost in their last 3 games losing against Juventus and Liverpool and tie against Aston Villa. After being the leader in the Premier League for several round Manchester City dropped to the 3th place and can't afford to lose again in order to stay in the title race. Southampton on the other hand was on a 8 game unbeaten streak which got stopped by Stoke City recently. After a difficult start in the league the Saints got back to the top region of the Premier League and is placed 8th. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini will have to set all sails in order to get Manchester City back in their old form. Statistics show us that Manchester City won't have a lot of trouble. We predict Manchester City to win against Southampton and stay in the title race. It's time for Sergio Aguero to get back in form as soon as possible.
Highlighted Player (David Silva):
David Silva is a product of Valencia’s youth system. Born on 8 January, 1986, the highly rated footballer made his debut in the 2004/2005 campaign and went on to score a total of 21 goals for the Estadio de Mestalla outfit. In 2010, the Spanish midfielder signed a deal with Premier League side Manchester City and he has already won two domestic championships with the free-spending club.
In the 2015/2016 season David Silva and Co. faced Real Madrid in the Champions League semis, but the Spanish giants proved to be a big catch for the Citizens in the two-legged tie. Silva plays as an attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as winger or a second striker as well.
He is well known for his possession-retaining qualities and, as a result, he got the nicknames “Merlin” and “El Mago”. David Silva won the 2014 FIFA World Cup trophy with Spain, while winning Euro 2008 and Euro 2012 with La Roja as well.
Highlighted Team (Manchester City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
