Manchester City will bid to become the first team to ever reach 100 Premier League points when they take on Southampton in one of three matches live on Sky Sports on Sunday afternoon...

Sunday - 3.00pm OddsTips
Southampton v Manchester City   
Man City win and over 2.5 goals    Best Bet 21/20

Record Breakers

City start the final day of the season with a record-breaking 97 points to their name and they are 4/9 favourites for yet another victory. Pep Guardiola's side have already recorded the most wins and most goals in the history of the Premier League, and we fully expect them to sign off in style at the St Mary's Stadium.

The Citizens have won 15 of their 18 away games this season, scoring two or more when winning each of the last five in a row. Another City win and over 2.5 goals can be backed at 21/20, while the City win and over 3.5 goals is available at 11/5 with Boylesports.

This is a fixture that tends to provide goals as eight of the eleven Southampton v Manchester City fixtures since the Saints returned to the top-flight have seen both teams score, with City winning seven (drawn two, lost two).
Match Odds:

De Bruyne To Stun Saints

A bet on a City win combined with both teams to score is a 2/1 bet with William Hill, although it is perhaps reasonable to assume that Southampton will cautiously try to play for a point that will absolutely guarantee their survival.

Mark Hughes's men start the day in 17th place and could still mathematically go down, albeit it would take a remarkable sequence of events for that to happen as they would have to lose, Swansea would need to beat Stoke and the Swans would need to enjoy a ten-goal swing in the goal difference column.

Saints have done just about enough to stay up but they have only kept three clean sheets on home soil all season and Kevin De Bruyne will relish facing them again.

De Bruyne has scored two goals and laid on five assists in four appearances against Southampton - in fact, his 315 minutes of playing time against the Saints have seen him score or provide an assist every 45 minutes on average! The Belgian is 11/1 to score first (Boylesports.com) as City bid to sign off the season in style.
