Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming clash between Southampton and Manchester City. The next meeting is set to take place on Saturday, April 8, 2023.
The Saints are currently sitting in 20th place in the relegation zone with 23 points. The Citizens, meanwhile, are second, eight points behind the leaders Arsenal.
Merson believes City were "very good" and "outstanding" against Liverpool last weekend even without Erling Haaland. The pundit has backed Pep Guardiola's side to be the winners, however urged them to be careful at the weekend.
"Manchester City have to play Bayern Munich in three days' time, and they've got to rest some of their players. We've seen it before - they've beaten Arsenal but then played out a draw against Forest to bring Arsenal back in it. They've got to be careful here," he said on Sportskeeda.
"Manchester City were very good against Liverpool. They passed it around brilliantly, and some of the goals they scored were PlayStation goals. I think they'll have miles too much for Southampton this weekend."
Paul Merson's prediction: Southampton 0 - 3 Manchester City
