Southampton vs Manchester United: Prediction
Manchester United were absolutely fantastic in beating Leeds 5-1 last week and they top the league because of goal difference. There seems to be more of an urgency at the club now and they will be looking to stay right up there and challenge for the league title.
Southampton are more than capable of making this a tricky match for Man United, but we are finding it difficult to back against the visitors taking everything into consideration. Solskjaer’s side will be flying after hitting five against Leeds and should have too much for the Saints on Sunday afternoon.
As far as the overall result goes, it’s hard to look beyond Manchester United. They went unbeaten away from home in the league last term and have an excellent record against Southampton, so I’m opting for an away win.
