Southampton v Manchester United Match Predictions & Trends

Can Saints bounce back against free-scoring United?

Southampton host Manchester United this Sunday hoping to put the opening day defeat to Everton behind them. The 3-1 loss at Goodison Park was not an ideal start to the season despite new signing Adam Armstrong getting on the scoresheet on his debut. He will need to reproduce the quality of finishing on a regular basis this season after his big-money move from Blackburn Rovers to replace Villa-bound Danny Ings. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must decide whether to change a winning side and include new signings, Raphael Varane for a debut, and Jadon Sancho for a first start. Both will be keen to make an impression given United’s strong start to the campaign. Crushing Leeds 5-1 at Old Trafford has given fans a renewed sense of optimism and a real belief in a title championship challenge.

 United have got the better of Southampton of late, unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League games. Saints are looking for their first league win in fixtures between the two teams since January 2016. The Red Devils have outscored Southampton 23-9 during this unbeaten streak.
