Manchester United are currently in superb form and have won 4 matches in succession, scoring 14 goals and conceding just 2.  They are coming off a 3-0 away win over Aston Villa and their last 2 home games have been 3 goal victories over Bournemouth and Sheffield United.

United have only been beaten twice at home this season in 17 starts.  Manchester United’s home games have averaged 3 goals each and 10 of the 17 matches have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers.

Southampton are 12th on the table and in pretty good form themselves having taken 7 points from the last 9 they have played for.  They are coming off a 1-1 away draw at Everton and previously beat Manchester City 1-0 at home and Watford 3-1 on the road.

Southampton have one of the best away records in the EPL winning 8 of their 17 matches and losing just 6.  Southampton away games have been fairly high scoring, averaging 2.9 goals each with 11 of the 17 matches reaching 3 goals or more.

These sides met earlier in the season with Southampton and Manchester United playing to a 1-1 draw back in August 2019.  Last season United won this fixture 3-2.

Manchester United 7/20

Draw 9/2

Southampton 33/4

Suggested Bet:  Both teams to score, YES, at 9/10

Manchester United should win this and they are deservedly short priced favourites and I was tempted to back them on the (-1) Handicap at 17/20.  The bet I prefer though is both sides to find the back of the net at 9/10.  United have been scoring for fun, but Southampton have scored in their last 4 home matches and as Bournemouth showed when they got 2 at Old Trafford if Manchester United go well clear they may well step off the gas.

There are plenty of other markets including Correct Score and if I had to pick a correct score I would go Manchester United 3-1 which is priced at 25/2.  You can also bet on who will be the first Goal Scorer, Martial is the 17/4 favourite and he is 23/20 to score at any time during the match.
