The Red Devils continue to disappoint
Manchester United have a very strong squad and should be fighting for the top 4 in the APL. So far, the club is only sixth in the league, just a point behind the first quartet, but the standings are confusing as the rivals have played different numbers of meetings. “The Red Devils have already crashed out of the FA Cup, sensationally losing 1-1 at home to Middlesbrough in a penalty shoot-out. Their last meeting in the league also failed to be won, an away draw against outsider Burnley, 1-1. The most disconcerting thing about the team’s sluggish play is the tension in the dressing room as well. Cristiano Ronaldo has been quiet for a long time and has not produced a result in five games in a row. Four players will not be helping the team in this encounter.
Saints hold their own
This calendar year is shaping up well for Southampton, who have suffered just one defeat in six meetings. In the last round, the Saints won 3-2 away to strong Tottenham, with Spurs even leveling the score in injury time but the goal was cancelled out after the video replay. The club is firmly in the middle of the standings, sitting in tenth place. Injuries will not allow four players to take to the pitch.
In the first round, Southampton managed to hold on to a 1-1 home win in that meeting, with MJ scoring both inside and outside goals.
It is no surprise that the odds of success for MJ are not that low and are gradually increasing. The Red Devils’ victory is doubtful, even though the team is playing at home against a mid-table side and on home field. It is not impossible that we will see another unimpressive Manchester City match. We suggest betting on an exchange of goals in the upcoming battle.
