Manchester United v Southampton Betting Preview: Red Devils to get the better of the Saints

Manchester United and Southampton go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Friday night in the Premier League as the Red Devils look to continue their winning start to the campaign.

Manchester United have kicked off life under boss Jose Mourinho in encouraging form, having beaten Leicester 2-1 in the Community Shield and dispatched Bournemouth 3-1 in their Premier League game of the campaign.

World-record signing French international midfielder Paul Pogba missed the trip to Bournemouth through suspension but is expected to make his debut in this one.

United’s new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored in both of his appearances so far for the Red Devils and will be confident of making it goals in three consecutive games.

Mourinho side are favourites to record a victory in this clash at odds of 4/9 with Marathon Bet.

Southampton opened their Premier League campaign with a 1-1 draw against Watford at St Marys on Saturday. The Hornets were reduced to ten men through the dismissal of Ben Watson, but Claude Puel’s side could not find a way past the stubborn Hornets defence.

The Saints goal came from England under-21 international Nathan Redmond, who started as a central striker and could do again against the Red Devils.

The team from the South coast have won on their last two trips to Old Trafford, both with a 1-0 scoreline. It seems like an unlikely scoreline this time around and the Saints can be backed at odds of 8/1 with Marathon Bet to win this clash.

Big Tip

I can’t see anything other than a home win in this clash, which is available at odds of 4/9 with Marathon Bet, as the Saints are yet to find their feet under new boss Puel.
