Competition: Premier League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to build off of their Champions League victory earlier in the week, Manchester United will make the trip to a high-flying Southampton on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, although Southampton might have eventually had to settle for a point away at Wolves last time out, it has been a stellar run of form for the South Coast outfit. Despite being unable to call upon an injured Danny Ings, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men are enjoying a seven-match Premier League unbeaten run, their most successful spell since November 2013. Still flirting with the European spots and wit their recent purple patch highlighted by 4-3 and 3-3 draws against Aston Villa and Chelsea respectively, the former RB Leipzig boss has also seen his side make a string of improvements on home soil. Along with ending Everton’s unbeaten start last month, Southampton have won each of their last three top-flight matchups at St. Mary’s, bagging over 1.5 goals in each of those appearances.
As for the visitors, managing to pick up a 4-1 romp against Turkish outfit Istanbul Basaksehir while on Champions League duties earlier in the week, Manchester United will be desperate to build off of that result. Although the former Premier League champions might now find themselves enjoying a three-match winning run across all formats, they have struggled to really lay down much of a marker so far this season. Dropping back out of the top-half of the table, the Reds know that they were extremely lucky to have snatched all three points off of West Brom last week in a showdown decided by more VAR controversy at Old Trafford. With Sunday’s opponents playing out a 2-2 draw when they faced off back in July, we’re backing a similar outcome on Sunday afternoon.
Bet: Both teams to score at Southampton vs Manchester United 7/10 for Sunday’s Premier League showdown @ 888sport
