Southampton vs Manchester Preview Games and History
The most recent Southampton vs Manchester match was played on January 11, 2023, at St Mary’s Stadium in the quarterfinals of the EFL Cup. The locals were in disbelief as Southampton managed to pull off two consecutive blows that knocked out Manchester City. Despite having a full squad, the Cityzens were unable to reverse their opponent’s achievements. The result left Manchester City in disbelief.
It was unbelievable what was happening. The Cityzens were dominating the ball, holding it 72% of the time, and could not create any offensive play. They were totally pinned down in their own half, passing the ball between them but unable to go up. Southampton, who were content with the remaining 28% of the ball handling, knew how to take advantage of it and then shield the defensive ranks, no one was passing.
Southampton had only 69% accuracy in the scant 279 combinations they managed, but with that, they would pave the way for the two winning goals. Meanwhile, the Cityzens, who had an 87% effectiveness in passing, seemed to be playing among themselves in their own half. Nothing was achieved, and they were barely to be seen in the game. The Saints had four shots on goal, two of which were converted, while Manchester City failed to create a single clear-cut chance.
In the 23rd minute, the scoreboard was opened by a pass from Lyanco to striker Sékou Mara, and the Saints began to celebrate in their own half. Southampton’s second goal came in the 28th minute. This time it was Lavia who found midfielder Moussa Djenepo to score just five minutes after the opening goal. This would end this Southampton vs Manchester City match with a resounding victory for the home side.
