Manchester Utd vs Southampton – Prediction, and Match Preview

Manchester Utd vs Southampton – Following their 7-0 Premier League defeat to Liverpool in their most recent game, Manchester United will be seeking to improve on their previous performance here.

Manchester United had 40% of the game’s control and made 8 shots on goal, none of which was successful. Liverpool made 18 efforts on goal, with 7 of those shots finding the back of the net.

For Liverpool, goals were made by Cody Gakpo (43, 50), Darwin Nez (47, 75), Mohamed Salah (66, 83), and Roberto Firmino (88). In 5 of the last 6 games in which Manchester United played, there were at least three goals per game.

In these games, opposition teams tallied 11 of them, while Manchester United totaled 12. But it’s not certain that this tendency will continue.

Pre-game stats reveal that in their previous 13 games, Manchester United and Southampton have not dropped a league match. They have an impressive record and have gone undefeated in their last 11 home league games.

They’ll be hoping to continue this success here. Southampton enters this game off of a 1-0 Premier League victory over Leicester City in their previous encounter.

Southampton had 35% of the game’s control and 5 of its 11 shots on goal were successful. Carlos Alcaraz (35′) was the lone Southampton player to score. Leicester City, on the other hand, made 11 efforts at goal, with 0 of them going in.

Over their last six games, Southampton’s forward players have failed to score, scoring a disappointing total of just four goals. The Saints have also witnessed an opponent’s aggregate goal total of 8 in those games.

Southampton entered this encounter with a six-match league losing streak against Manchester United when playing them on the road. They haven’t been moving very well at all.

Manchester Utd vs Southampton – Betting Analysis

Looking at their previous head-to-head matches dating back to July 13, 2020, we can see that Manchester United has won three of them and Southampton has lost none, while there have been three ties.

During this time, many goals were also tallied, totaling 23 for an average of 3.83 per game. For Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, Anthony Martial (hip injury), Christian Eriksen (ankle injury), and Donny van de Beek (knee injury) will be sidelined.

With David De Gea, Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martnez, Luke Shaw, Casemiro, Fred, A. Matheus dos, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, and Wouter Weghorst, we believe The Red Devils should play a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Gavin Bazunu, A. Maitland-Niles, Jan Bednarek, Armel Bella-Kotchap, Kyle Walker-Peters, Jamie Ward-Prowse, Roméo Lavia, Theo Walcott, Mohamed Elyounoussi, Kamal-Deen Sulemana, and Che Adams are set to start the game for The Saints in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Although Southampton has the potential to strike against this Manchester United team, we believe that it won’t be enough to prevent a loss.
