Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways, especially following their shock defeat to Crystal Palace, as they travel to St. Mary’s to face Southampton in the early kick-off on Saturday in the English Premier League.
Southampton Betting Tips
Southampton lost their first 2 matches to Burnley and Liverpool, but they picked up a hard-fought victory away at Brighton last weekend. Moussa Djenepo and Nathan Redmond both scored to give the Saints their first three points of the campaign. That was Southampton’s first league win in eight attempts after failing to win any of their last five matches at the end of last season. Despite his team’s poor form, Saints’ boss Ralph Hasenhuttl will be satisfied with his players following an impressive display against Liverpool and their win against Brighton last time out.
Southampton have no fresh injury worries ahead of the clash with United, however the Red Devils do have a number of injury concerns, so we are recommending both teams to score at odds of 8/11 and over 2.5 goals in the game at the odds 10/11. Since Man Utd are the bookie’s favourite to win, if you feel that Southampton could follow in Crystal Palace’s steps and pull off a win, then it’s worth a try with odds at 14/5.
The Red Devils began their campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea, but could only manage a 1-1 draw with Wolves in their second match. They went behind after half an hour against Crystal Palace before Marcus Rashford missed the team’s second penalty in as many matches. Daniel James thought he had rescued a point for his side in the 89th minute, but Patrick Van Aanholt scored in injury time to condemn Man Utd to their first loss of the season.
Solskjaer will be desperate for a win on Saturday in an attempt to kick-start a run of positive results. However he does injury issues with left-back Luke Shaw set to be out for a month with a hamstring problem, Anthony Martial is a doubt with a thigh issue, and Eric Bailey is a long-term absentee.
United are unbeaten in the last 7 meetings against Southampton and have scored two or more goals on 4 occasions in that time. Southampton last beat Manchester United in 2016 and will put up a fight on Saturday, however Man Utd are likely to come away with the victory. The odds for Manchester United to win are 21/20 and for both teams to score and United to win are 3/1. We are recommending a 1-3 win to united at the odds 16/1.
