Reason For Southampton vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Southampton’s season started in torrid fashion as they were dismantled at home by an invigorated looking Burnley side, but things quickly began to improve despite the early setback.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team were vastly improved on match-day 2 as they put in a stellar performance against Liverpool. Ultimately, The Saints still lost that match 2-1, but the fact that they outperformed Jurgen Klopp’s side on expected goals illustrates just how much better they were compared to the opening weekend.

Aided by a first half red card for Brighton, Southampton clinched their first victory of the season last weekend with a 2-0 win, and followed it with League Cup success in midweek. It looks like The Saints have put their slow start behind them and are back to the level they were showing under Hasenhuttl at the end of last season.

That’s a worry for Manchester United, especially after the torrid Saturday afternoon they endured last weekend. They had 22 shots on the Palace goal and enjoyed 71% possession at Old Trafford, but a missed penalty, some dubious refereeing decisions, and shoddy defending ultimately saw them fall to a 2-1 defeat.

This followed their draw with Wolves, and their emphatic 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening weekend seems a very long time ago now. For the Old Trafford faithful, it’s looking more and more like a return to the dark days of last season.

The Red Devils are undoubtedly talented on the counter attack, but their lack of creativity when faced with a stalwart back line severely limits their clear goal-scoring opportunities. They can’t expect Southampton to hold the door open for them on Saturday either.

Manchester United have now won just 2 of their last 10 Premier League matches and are coming into this match having failed to win their last 5 away days in the league.

Southampton, meanwhile, have only lost 3 of their last 10 home games in the league, and 2 of those came against Liverpool. This run of fixtures includes wins against both Tottenham and Everton, so considering Manchester United’s lack of confidence right now, we think backing a Southampton Win or Draw Double Chance is a great option.

3 of the last 5 league meetings between these sides has ended as a draw as well, as have each of Man Utd’s last 2 away matches in the top flight. Southampton have played out 8 league stalemates at St Mary’s Stadium since the start of last season too, so backing a 1-1 correct score prediction looks the best bet to us.

Stats

Southampton vs Manchester United Stats

  • The home team has ended on the winning side in just three of the last 15 Premier League meetings between Southampton and Man Utd (W3 D5 L7).
  • Southampton have lost nine Premier League games against Manchester United after leading in the game – more than any other team has done so against another in Premier League history.
  • There have been seven direct free-kick goals scored in Premier League fixtures between Southampton and Man Utd – including two by Southampton last season – with only games between Liverpool and Man Utd seeing more such goals (8).
  • Since a 0-0 draw with Newcastle in October 2018, Southampton have found the net at least once in their last 15 Premier League home games. Only between August 1992-April 1993 have Saints had a longer such run in the competition (17), while only Manchester City (21), Arsenal (19) and Liverpool (17) on a longer current run of scoring in home games.
  • Manchester United have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 Premier League games (4-0 vs Chelsea on the opening day), shipping 22 goals in that time while scoring just 19 in return (W5 D3 L6).
  • Manchester United have failed to score more penalties than any other team in Premier League history (37 of 144), with Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford missing United’s last two spot-kicks in the competition.
  • Including games as a player, Ole Gunnar Solskjær has won his last eight Premier League games against Southampton (six as a player, two as a manager), last failing to do so when playing the full 90 minutes in a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford in September 1999.
  • Southampton’s Nathan Redmond has been directly involved in four goals in his last four Premier League home games (3 goals, 1 assist), having failed to score or assist in any of his previous seven at St Mary’s.
