Manchester Utd vs Southampton Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Saturday, Manchester United will host Southampton at the Old Trafford. We are in for an exciting clash full of goals and betting opportunities as one of the best teams in the league face one of the worst.
Manchester United are placed fifth at the table with fifty-five points from sixteen wins, seven draws, and five losses. In the week behind us, they managed to triumph over Crystal Palace by the score of 3-1. Lukaku scored twice for United and Young added a goal of his own. On the other side, Ward was the only scorer for Palace. This was their eight away win in a row and it is the first time in the history of the club that a squad has achieved that. Olle has reformed the team and they are yet to lose a game under his guidance.
Southampton hold the number seventeen spot in the league standings with twenty-seven points and a negative goal difference of -16. So far in the season, they have gotten six wins, nine draws, and thirteen losses. They finally ended their winless streak in the previous round, when they faced Fulham. The final outcome of the match was 2-0 for Southampton with a goal each from Romeu and Ward-Prowse. The second half failed to bring any changes to the scoreboard and not much was seen in it. The teams had a few chances but were unable to capitalize on them.
When it comes to the previous matches between the two clubs, Manchester United have been the better one. Out of the recent five outings, the Red Devils have won two and the remaining three clashes ended as draws. In them, the teams averaged two goals per game and in two of the five, we have seen both sides score. The last time that Southampton defeated United was in 2016 at the Old Trafford.
