Match Preview

Man City will face Soton in the 5th Premier League match week 2021/22 which will take place at the Etihad Stadium, Saturday (18/09/2021) at 7:30 p.m. Indian time.

The city is currently in the fifth position in the standings with a collection of 9 points, 1 point behind their city rivals, Manchester United, who are at the top of the standings.

Had a disappointing appearance in the Premier League's opening match this season by losing 0-1 to Tottenham Hotspur, now City are slowly returning to their best form. In the next 3 matches, City managed to win over Norwich City 5-0, Arsenal 5-0, and Leicester City 1-0.

Not only that, City also just won a fantastic victory over RB Leipzig in the opening match of the UEFA Champions League this season with a landslide score of 6-3 through goals from Nathan Ake, Nordi Mukiele (og), Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish, Joao Cancelo, and Gabriel Jesus.

This series of victories will clearly increase the confidence of City players ahead of this match against Soton.

On the other hand, Tottenham has been disappointing in the Premier League this season. Lastly, Soton was only able to play a goalless draw against West Ham United at home.

With these results, Soton now occupies the fourteenth position in the standings with a collection of 3 points after a winless run in 4 matches that have been undertaken (W0 D3 L1).

At the last meeting in the English Premier League last season, City managed to beat Soton with a landslide score of 5-2 at the Etihad Stadium. Five of City's winning goals were scored by Kevin De Bruyne in the 15th and 59th minutes, Riyad Mahrez in the 40th and 55th minutes, and Ilkay Gundogan in the 45+3 minutes. Meanwhile, Soton's two goals were scored by James Ward-Prowse in the 25th minute and Che Adams in the 56th minute.
