Southampton vs Manchester City preview
With a 3-1 win over fellow Premier League side West Ham United, the hosts advanced to the final eight. City, on the other hand, cruised over Peterborough 2-0 away from home.
The Saints have lost three league games in a row since their win over the Hammers. They were defeated 2-1 at home by struggling Watford in their previous league match.
City, on the other hand, drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace on Tuesday and will be eager to get back on track.
Since beating West Ham, Southampton has conceded eight goals in three games while scoring twice. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s side won a spectacular 4-1 victory against arch-rivals Manchester United earlier this month, but their following two games ended in goalless draws.
Nonetheless, the chances of an upset are slim, as City has sufficient depth to defeat Southampton.
