Manchester United vs Southampton provides this week’s Monday night Premier League action. Manchester United weren’t even assured of playing Europa League football before the arrival of Bruno Fernandes but they’ve now looming in the rear-view mirrors of both Chelsea and Leicester in the race for the last two Champions League spots.
United have won their last four Premier League games and are a short price to beat Southampton but, with Southampton also playing well, our tip for Manchester United vs Southampton is Manchester United to win and both teams to score.
Manchester United are playing better than anyone as we approach the crux of the Premier League season and they’ve blossomed in their last four matches with 3-0 wins over Sheffield United, Brighton, and Aston Villa, as well as a 5-2 win over Bournemouth.
Those three clean sheets suggest United are playing well in defence and attack, but Southampton having also been playing well on their recent travels with a 3-0 win at Norwich, a 3-0 win at Watford, and a 1-1 draw at Everton. That suggests they should at least be capable of grabbing a goal at Old Trafford, even though they’re position in mid-table obscurity means they may lack the same motivation to win as Man United.
Both teams have also scored in the last three head-to-heads, with the last two games at St Mary’s ending 1-1 and 2-2, while last season’s match at Old Trafford ended 3-2. Both teams continue to prefer to play attacking and entertaining football and 2/1 is a value price for our Manchester United vs Southampton tip of Manchester United to win and both teams to score.
