The English Premier League is back in full swing with a full slate of games coming up this Saturday including this interesting United versus Southampton matchup.
Talk of Manchester United’s sub par squad was quickly quashed in week 1 with a decisive 4-0 victory over Chelsea. The Reds, however, have come back to earth since that home performance with two mediocre efforts against Wolverhampton and Crystal Palace.
They ended up getting a draw against Wolves (1-1) and lost the match to Palace (2-1) and lacked serious creativity in the final third only managing 5 total shots on target in those two matches. You would think United would be able to cause some trouble for their opponents down the flanks as they possess great fullback play.
The problem for the fullbacks is that their crosses are not hitting the mark as The Reds have been playing with a lone striker up top in Anthony Martial who is not nearly as good as the departed Lukaku in that lone striker role.
Southampton, on the other hand, is a completely different story as they started the year incredibly poorly with a 3-0 loss to Burnley, but have been getting progressively better since then. They had an outstanding effort at home against Liverpool which they narrowly lost 2-1, but came back last week with a nice 2-0 win over Brighton.
In that home game against Liverpool they were able to hold strong in a 3-5-2 formation and effectively worked the counter attack. I would look for much of the same here and given the way United likes to push their fullbacks up the field they may be in a good spot to pounce.
Free Manchester United vs Southampton EPL Prediction:
This is a very interesting game from a betting angle and arguments can be made for both of these sides, but I am going to roll with the draw here. The draw seems a touch too high and should have a good chance of landing at a big plus money price with both of these teams not wanting to drop all three points.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: Draw +230
I can see United holding the ball for much of this game and eventually getting a breakthrough, but would also look for Southampton to get one back on the counter attack in front of their home fans. I would go with the draw here on Saturday morning.
