Premier League / Southampton vs Manchester United – In the first match of the 4th round of the English Premier League we have two teams that didn’t start well the new season. Southampton won only three points in first three rounds thanks to victory in the previous round. Manchester United has one point more than its host but more was expected from them, and they disappointed with defeat in the previous round. Match between these two teams played in Southampton last year had finished as 2-2 draw.
Game Southampton vs Manchester United begins 31.08.2019 at 13:30 CET
Southampton suffered two defeats in first two rounds, where the first one with Burnley away was by even 3-0. They played very badly that match, while in the second round they faced the reigning European champion Liverpool. Naturally, they were outsiders and were losing by 2-0 but Liverpool’s goalkeeper was clumsy enough to grant them one goal after which Southampton could even equalise before the end. They didn't succeed in that and then everything fell to place in the previous round when they played in Brighton. One of home team players was sent off in the first half and in the second Denepo and Redmond scored for the first Southampton’s triumph this season. During the week they defeated Fulham 0-1 in the League Cup. Redmond, Denepo and Obafemi are questionable for this match.
Probable lineups Southampton: Gunn – Valery, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Danso – Oriol Romeu, Hojbjerg – Boufal, Ward-Prowse – Adams, Ings
In just three rounds Manchester United came from great to dreadful performance. They played the best in the first round against the strongest rival and won Chelsea 4-0 at the Old Trafford. It was a promising beginning but already in the second round the United merely drew away with Wolverhampton. They didn’ot play badly and had a penalty which Pogba missed so the result stayed 1-1. They expected to win Crystal Palace in the previous round but they suffered a real shock. The United lost at home 1-2, again after missing a penalty although this time it was Rashford. The team will undergo changes now, while Martial is injured.
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Jones – Matic, McTominay – James, Pogba, Rashford – Greenwood
Betting Pick: Southampton vs Man. United
It seems that Southmapton plays better and better, and it the home team will try to surprise the guests who don’t play in accordance with expectations. It cannot be said that Manchester United is a favourite to win and consequently we forecast that both teams will score.
