Reason for Southampton vs Manchester United Predictions
Southampton scored first against Everton but was condemned to an opening defeat after a lackluster second half and will be hoping for some comfort at home. Going to this game, it will be fresh in the Saints’ minds how they let go of a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United in the corresponding fixture. They will also remember the capitulation at Old Trafford, where they lost 9-0. Southampton lost key man Danny Ings to Aston Villa, and the defense was also not spared as defender Jannik Vestergaard departed for Leicester City. They were exposed in the loss to Everton, having earlier also conceded three goals in a friendly with Athletic Bilbao. In Premier League action, Southampton has three straight losses, having conceded two or more in each, while they have no clean sheet in their last 12 league games. James Ward-Prowse has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Moussa Djenepo is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game.
Manchester United was rampant against Leeds United, even though they seemed shaky at the back. Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba were in inspired form in the game; Fernandes scoring three and Pogba assisting four. They will be fired up for this game, and with Raphael Varane expected to start, some solidity at the back is expected. They have just one clean sheet in the last 13 matches, and each of the previous five has produced over 2.5 goals while United has scored two or more in each of them. They have back-to-back wins going to this game, and in the two matches, United has scored nine goals. Bruno Fernandes has scored four goals in the last two games now, and Mason Greenwood has also been great in attack in the absence of Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Edison Cavani shows that he is a great reinforcement, and he scored ten goals last season.
Manchester United is the favorite in this match, and they might be among the favorites to win the Premier League this season.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
