Football tips for the Manchester City vs Southampton match this Saturday afternoon in the Premier League, kicking off at 12.30pm.
Manchester City are on the title trail and will be full of confidence heading into this weekend's game against Southampton, with City only losing one Premier League game at home all season. The pressure is on City to make their two games in hand over title rivals Liverpool and Chelsea count, and they will be eager to get maximum points against the securely mid-table Saints.
As expected, Man City are the heavy favourites in the latest betting odds at a best price 1/3 with Betfred. A draw for Southampton is 9/2 with Bet Victor and a Southampton win is 19/2 with Bet Victor.

Yaya Toure is Manchester City's top Premier League goalscorer this season, finding the back of the net 17 times, an astonishing number for a midfielder. He is 11/8 to score again at anytime during Saturday afternoon's game and his impressive strike rate this season is the reason for that being the first bett tip for this match.
Man City have been almost invincible at home this season, so why not combine the Yaya Toure betting tip with a Man City home win which is 7/4 with Stan James. Man City have a formidable home record – having only failed to score once at home in the league since December 2010. I back them to continue their good record at the Etihad with the profilic Yaya Toure grabbing a goal.
The attacking might of Manchester City has received plaudits all season, but their defensive capabilities have been questionable to say the least. Southampton have only failed to score twice in the league since December, and their English trio of Lambert, Rodriguez and Lallana have been firing in the goals. That is why my third betting tip is Man City to win but both teams to score at 9/5.
