The away victory to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup match at the weekend will act as a confidence-booster for Southampton.
Southampton have a massive task at hand to get past a dominant Manchester City side in the quarterfinals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night. This fixture will see two sides sitting at contrasting ends of the table going on against each other. Manchester will undoubtedly be the favourites in this match – and for obvious reasons. Pep Guardiola’s side are nearly unstoppable in the Premier League and have also taken that form into other competitions.
The same cannot be said for Southampton who are going through a difficult spell in the Premier League. Placed at the foot of the table, they just have 12 points from 18 games. However, the away victory to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup match at the weekend will act as a confidence-booster for them. Meanwhile, Manchester City are heading into this game on the back of consecutive victories over Chelsea. They have 39 points from 17 games to be sitting second in the Premier League table.
