Man Utd vs Southampton: Betting Tips & Odds

Premier League predictions for Man Utd's home game against Southampton this weekend. The Red Devils will be looking to erase the horrid memory of their 7-0 defeat at Anfield last weekend by securing all 3pts at home to the Saints. Southampton sit in the relegation zone as things stand and while they really need a win, the visitors would probably be happy to come away with a point from Old Trafford.

Man Utd & Over 2.5 Goals

Our first Man Utd vs Southampton prediction regards the end result and the total goals scored. Man Utd have won three of their last five encounters with Southampton and haven't lost against the Saints since 2015. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of the pair's last six league meetings, including that 9-0 victory United secured at Old Trafford in 2021. Five of the hosts' and three of the visitors' last six outings in league and cup have also witnessed at least three goals scored, so you can see why we're expecting goals this weekend.

Marcus Rashford to Score

Our second Man Utd vs Southampton prediction delves into the Anytime Goalscorer market. Marcus Rashford is enjoying his best season in a long time for the Red Devils. The England international has netted 14-goals in the Premier League alone as well as a further 12-goals in cup competitions. The 25-year-old is in excellent form right now with 8-goals in his last 10 appearances in all competitions  and we're backing Rashford to score against Southampton on Sunday.

Man Utd

Man Utd ended up getting thrashed at Anfield last time out despite only trailing 1-0 at the interval. Liverpool scored a whopping 6-goals in the second half as they secured a famous 7-0 win over their arch-rivals which left the United faithful stunned. Ten Hag's men recovered well in midweek though as they secured a 4-1 win over Real Betis in the Europa League.

Van de Beek, Eriksen, Martial and Sabitzer could all miss out this weekend through injury.

Predicted Lineup – de Gea (GK), Varane, Shaw, Dalot, Martínez, Casemiro, Fred, Fernandes, Weghorst, Rashford & Antony

Southampton

Southampton picked up a huge 3pts at home to Leicester last weekend and will be desperate to avoid defeat on Sunday as they look to escape relegation to the Championship this season. Alcaraz scored the only goal of the game in the 35th-minute which proved enough for the Saints who kept a rare clean sheet.

The goalscorer last weekend, Carlos Alcaraz, could miss the trip to Old Trafford along with Larios and Livramento.

Predicted Lineup – Bazunu (GK), Bednarek, Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Ward-Prowse, Maitland-Niles, Alcaraz, Sulemana, Lavia, Walcott & Adams

Player to Watch: Marcus Rashford

Not only have we backed Rashford to score this weekend but we're also singling the England man out as our player to watch on Sunday.

Rashford has been behind much of the positive work Man Utd have done this season, providing the goals that look like they could take the Red Devils back into the Champions League. Rashford has already helped ten Hag secure his first trophy as Man Utd manager, beating Newcastle in the League Cup final, and he continues to score goals on a regular basis in all competitions.

With a total of 26-goals in all competitions this season, Rashford is proving himself to be a top-class forward once again and he is thriving under the guidance of ten Hag.
