12BET (Football Betting Tips) Southampton are only at arm’s length from securing their Premier League survival. As they host Manchester City on Sunday, expect that the Saints will perform a very good display that will put them farther away from the relegation zone.

Recently, Southampton secured a vital 1-0 win against a bottom team Swansea City, leaving themselves in the 17th spot, three points clear of the dangerous zone. Despite that, club manager Mark Hughes must ensure his players know that the threats of being relegated are still present. And it’s a must for Hughes to prevent any complacency creeping in against the free-scoring Premier League champions.
Manchester City sealed their campaign against Brighton in 3-1 victory at Etihad Stadium. This has inspired club manager Pep Guardiola to target 100 points this season even when his squad has already taken the Premier League silverware.
To achieve this, only a win on Sunday against Southampton will make this dream come true for Guardiola and his men.
A win on the home side may be unlikely. But then, even a single point in this campaign would guarantee Southampton’s safety. And besides, given the Saints’ +9 goal difference over Swansea it would mathematically take a couple of home defeats to see Southampton relegated (watch how this contest unfolds.
