Another game that has little meaning will be the meeting of Manchester City and Southampton in the Ethiad. Manchester City have guaranteed themselves second with a run of five straight wins in the league, after all the talk of decline and a poor season Manchester City are still going to finish a clear second and it just goes to show how a little success can alter how we view teams. Manchester City with Sergio Aguero are a formidable outfit and last two games Manchester City have scored ten goals and looked terrific. With Silva, Aguero and Toure this is a team that has so much talent finishing second is a disappointment. I think Manuel Pelligrini will look to close out the season at home with a win here.
Southampton have been on fire offensively themselves lately. Ronald Koeman's men scored six last week against Aston Villa. Pelle , Long and Mane were terrific last week providing goals and assists. The Saints if they win could leap frog both Liverpool and Tottenham and finish fifth but they would need some help from Everton and Stoke, which is not out of the question. Southampton have had a terrific season though and no matter how this game finishes up Southampton will be happy with how their season has gone.
End of season games tend to have a more relaxed attitude with more goals and I think we see a few here. I'm taking both teams to score here as I see this one being a cracker with both going up and down the field, Southampton's counter attack is one of the fastest in the league and I think they give Manchester City a really tough game here.
