What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Southampton
Our Trueform chart reflects just how well Manchester United are playing right now and they are hard to oppose when hosting Southampton.
The Red Devils have rattled off nine wins and two draws in 11 Premier League matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to push for a place in the top four.
Saints have also improved under Ralph Hasenhuttl, but 11/10 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game is our opening Man Utd vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United shrugged off a big injury list to prevail 3-1 at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, giving them an eighth straight away win in all competitions.
Romelu Lukaku put the Red Devils in control with a double strike and Ashley Young eased any late nerves after Joel Ward had pulled one back on 66 minutes.
Lukaku said: “It was time for other players to step up, which we did.
“We won the game and now we have to move forward to the next game, hopefully keep the same level.
“I’m happy with my goals, happy with my performance, but I’m happy with the win.
“It was really important for us to win, if you look at the other teams’ results. We did what we had to do and now we have to keep going.”
The positivity around Old Trafford is there for all to see and 4/1 for Lukaku to build on that confidence-boosting brace by breaking the deadlock again appeals from the Man Utd vs Southampton odds.
Last United line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Young, Dalot, Shaw, Pogba, Fred, McTominay, Sanchez, Lukaku.
Anthony Martial could return from a groin complaint for United, while Marcus Rashford is fit to start after an ankle injury.
However, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are set to miss out, along with Phil Jones, Nemanja Matic, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton bounced back from losses to Cardiff and Arsenal by beating Fulham 2-0 at St Mary’s Stadium in midweek, with Oriol Romeu and James Ward-Prowse on target.
That fifth victory in 12 Premier League outings helped Saints climb out of the bottom three, with Ralph Hasenhuttl praising the response of his players.
“It’s not a shame to fail, because it’s all about failing in football,” said the Austrian.
“It’s about how you stand up again and the team was showing that they knew exactly what to do.
“It’s important that we give a clear focus on what we did very good and maybe also a chance to take something in Man U.”
Saints have predictably struggled when visiting elite-level clubs, though, picking up just one point from road games against five of the other top-six teams.
However, claiming a consolation goal may not be beyond them, so 11/1 for the Red Devils to prevail 3-1 completes our Man Utd vs Southampton betting tips.
Last Southampton line-up: Gunn, Yoshida, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Bednarek, Valery, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Hojbjerg, Austin.
Southampton will again be without forward Danny Ings (hamstring) and midfielder Mario Lemina (abdominal problem), while Michael Obafemi (hamstring) is set to miss the rest of the season.
