Liverpool great and Paddy Power ambassador Phil Thompson is back once again with his weekend best bets from the FA Cup Quarter Finals.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS

Off the back of three straight defeats Southampton have the unenviable task of welcoming Premier League Champions Manchester City to the south coast. The Saints are City’s first Premier League opposition in the FA Cup this season, after beating Championship side Peterborough last time out. Check out Phil Thompson’s Southampton v Man City tips below. 

Sunday, March 20: 3pm – Southampton v Manchester City
TV: BBC One

Southampton v Manchester City

THOMMO: Manchester City with that draw against Palace in midweek are just allowing Liverpool back into it, that door is ajar and Liverpool have kicked it open and there’s only one point in the Premier League.

But I can’t see anything for Southampton. They had a seven match unbeaten run until losing their last three games, so they’re not coming into this game well.

They’re going to have to do a lot of defending because City have scored 107 goals in all competitions, they’ve got the best defence in the Premier League.

So I can’t see any more than a Manchester City victory, and I can’t see Southampton scoring.

City have had quite a lot of goalscorers in the side, I think Riyad Mahrez to score at anytime.

And City to win 2-0, I think is going to be a good scoreline.
