As anticipated by the news.bwin.com/en/ tipping force last week, Morgan Schneiderlin’s injury absence guaranteed Southampton would lose at Arsenal and we’re predicting a similar fate at home to Manchester United after another midfield pillar of the Saints’ acropolis crumbled.
An appetising 8/5 says the Red Devils will capitalise on the latest setback the St Mary’s side have suffered to claim the spoils, next to the untouchable hosts’ 37/20 and the 9/4-rated draw.
Not only will French string-puller Schneiderlin be missing for the contest between fourth and fifth, his understudy Jack Cork has also fallen by the wayside.
The Chelsea academy graduate aggravated a long-term ankle hindrance in the defeat at the Emirates, while defensive lynchpin Toby Alderweireld’s hamstring injury compounds matters further.
Cork has been on the losing side just once following the five matches he has started this season, with just one goal going in across this period.
With the Southampton squad decimated, there has hardly been a better time to invest the £30 free bet awarded to customers to open new accounts at bwin.com on an away-day win here.
Should Louis van Gaal’s side do the business then £48 profit can be had and there are more factors than injuries alone that say the bet will land.
Saints have been impressive minnow flatteners this term, but when it comes to besting the big dogs, they’ve fallen short on every occasion.
Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal have all beaten Ronald Koeman’s men this term, with the latter three prevailing in flawless fashion.
The south coast club haven’t been able to get the better of Man Utd in ten league and cup meetings, losing on eight occasions.
Man Utd have triumphed in four straight games and ended their lengthy away-day winless run at Arsenal on their previous sojourn.
Confidence is obviously high and having unearthed a method to pick up points on the road, the 13-time Premier League winners will fancy their chances of denting Southampton’s dwindling top-four prospects this evening.
