Southampton News and Form
After a sticky start to the new campaign, Southampton finally made their breakthrough last weekend. They took a 2-0 win at Brighton to get themselves going after back to back defeats. The weekend before that Southampton had put in a very good performance at home against Liverpool but had come up short. But it all came together for them at the Amex.
This isn’t the easiest of games of course in which to try and double up and get another win on the board. All three of the goals that Southampton have scored this season have been in the second half of matches. Four of the five they have conceded have been as well. So your betting may lean towards some second-half goal action in the fixture.
All three of their goals have come from different players as well. They have been knocked with Nathan Redmond picking up an ankle problem in midweek in their EFL Cup win over Fulham. There have been over 2.5 goals in all but one of Southampton’s last six Premier League home games. This would be a fantastic three points for the Saints if they could stick them.
Southampton v Manchester United Head to Head
Manchester United took four points against Southampton last season
The Saints scored two goals in both league games against the Red Devils last term
Both teams have scored in two of the last six EPL meetings
United are unbeaten in their last four home games against the Saints in all competitions
Manchester United News and Form
The Red Devils started the season on such a high, thumping Chelsea 4-0. It’s gotten a little less impressive since then. Following a 1-1 draw against Wolves, in which Paul Pobga missed a penalty, Manchester United suffered a shock home loss last weekend. Marcus Rashford took back penalty kick responsibilities and he missed, the Red Devils going on to lose 2-1 against Crystal Palace.
That was a massive blow for them. It does mean that United have had a penalty in each of their three league games this season. The Red Devils have scored in all matches played then this season with Daniel James, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial all sat on two each. Martial was injured last weekend against Palace and is a doubt.
United will naturally want to come up with some kind of response to last weekend’s failure. In a poor run of form, United have failed to win their last five Premier League away games. They are unbeaten in their last 11 road games at Southampton in all competitions. They had to settle for a 2-2 draw at St Mary’s last season, after fighting back from being 2-0 down in the first 20 minutes.
