What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Southampton
Manchester United had to endure a frustrating festive period after being knocked out of the EFL Cup and then only drawing 2-2 against both Leicester and Burnley in the Premier League.
However, our Trueform chart suggests they have a golden opportunity to get back on track when entertaining a Southampton side which has been really struggling of late.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United wasted any number of chances to finish off 10-man Leicester before being caught with a late sucker-punch and then took too long to get going against Burnley at Old Trafford.
Substitute Jesse Lingard did salvage some pride with a second-half double versus the Clarets and could even have snatched victory, as a point-blank effort was deflected against the crossbar.
“If we had played for another five or 10 minutes, we would have won the game,” Lingard told MUTV, having now netted six times in seven games.
“I thought we could nick it towards the end but obviously time ran out and now we look forward to the next game.
“We always have that fighting spirit, that never-give-up attitude – and we’ll see where it gets us.”
The Red Devils didn’t lack energy or effort in that fightback, but Mourinho will want more composure from his side in the final third here.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton were certainly all at sea at the back when thrashed 5-2 by Tottenham at Wembley and they now sit 14th in the table, just two points above the bottom three.
“Does the attitude need to improve? I would say yes,” admitted centre-half Maya Yoshida.
“I think it is a really difficult situation for Southampton, we cannot play like this. The game became too open. We need to get organised.”
Saints did at least respond through Sofiane Boufal and Dusan Tadic and have now only drawn a blank in front of goal once in eight matches.
