Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Southampton vs Manchester United


The Saints lost away to Everton in the first round of the English Championship, although they were leading in that match and clearly hoped for more. The team has a much more serious test ahead, because now at its own stadium it will play against one of the favorites of the English Premier League.

Last season, Southampton lost twice to Manchester United and even conceded nine goals in one match, so now Ralph Hasenhüttl's men will try to take revenge on their opponent. The hosts will definitely not put up with the status of the underdog and will try to take points away from the favorite.

Manchester United

Manchester United kicked off powerfully into the new season with a crushing home win over Leeds, a success that confirmed the Red Devils' ambitions this season. In the last match, Jadon Sancho made his debut as part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, and another star newcomer, Raphael Varane, is planned to participate in the game with Southampton.

If Manchester United really wants to fight for the championship this season, then the Norwegian's wards have no right to often lose points in matches against weaker opponents. The future fight is just one of those - the guests look like clear favorites and are obliged to confirm this status.

Game Totals Prediction

The opponents started their performances in completely different ways in the new season of the English Premier League, but even without the results of the first round, Manchester United would have been the clear favorite in the game with Southampton. Solskjaer's team will again try to play as actively and aggressively as possible in the attack, while the hosts will rely on counterattacks and will act on the defensive. The Red Devils' defense is still not perfect, so betting on “both teams to score” at 1.73
