On Sunday, November 29, within the tenth round of the Premier League, Southampton will play at home with Manchester United – we have prepared a forecast for this game.
The Saints have good potential, but in recent years the team has not been able to realize it. The team began to improve after Ralf Hasenhüttl appeared on the coaching bridge . Already at the start of the current championship, Southampton indicated that they are not going to defend their right to stay in the Premier League, but intend to solve more serious problems here.
Before the upcoming match, Soton is in fifth place in the standings. The Saints have 17 points and are just three points behind the leading Tottenham.
Southampton had an excellent stretch of three victories in a row – over Everton (2: 0), Aston Villa (4: 3) and Newcastle (2: 0), but was stopped in the last round by Wolverhampton ( 1: 1). In general, the unbeaten run of Ralf Hasenhüttl’s wards has already seven matches in a row. Although it is still worth noting that during this period there was not a single top team. The only team from the top was Tottenham this season, which the Saints lost at home (2: 5) at the start of the championship. Although, in general, it should be noted that the game at home in comparison with the past seasons at Southampton has improved a little. After losing the match with Spurs, they beat West Bromwich, Everton and Newcastle with the same score 2-0.
Soton’s top scorer Danny Ings has been out for a week, with five goals in this league. Besides him, Nathan Redmond and Mohammed Salisu are in the infirmary.
“Red Devils” have always set themselves the most serious tasks. The best years, however, have come in the era of Alex Ferguson , when Manchester United terrified rivals both domestically and in European competition. Out of 20 championship titles, the Mankunians won 13 under the leadership of the Scotsman. Having won the “gold medals” in the 2012/2013 season, Ferguson ended his coaching career, and with his departure, the “red devils” cannot interfere in the championship showdown.
Last season, the club’s management made a bet on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer , but he has not yet managed to create a team that solves the highest tasks. At the end of last season, the Norwegian nevertheless dragged Manchester United into the Champions League, and the team is performing well there. After four rounds, she leads the group. Although the most important matches are still ahead.
In the championship, the “red devils” settled in 11th place before the upcoming match. The team has 13 points in the asset, which is four less than the future rival Southampton, and seven – from the leader of Tottenham. There is, however, still a match in reserve.
In the last rounds they managed to beat the bloodied Everton (3: 1) and the outsider West Bromwich (1: 0), although before that in matches with more serious rivals – Chelsea (0: 0) and Arsenal (0 : 1), the Mankunians scored only one point.
Personnel losses are too much. Luke Shaw, Sergio Romero and Phil Jones will definitely not play. However, a whole group of key players has minor injuries and their participation in the match is questionable. These are Marcus Rashford, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay, Eric Bailly. Jessie Lingard is in quarantine.
Southampton have not lost in the championship for seven consecutive rounds.
At home, Soton have won three of their last four matches.
Manchester United have won all three away games in the current league, and overall Manchester United’s winning streak has seven Premier League games.
Manchester United have scored more goals in their last seven away matches.
Both will score have played in seven of their last nine head-to-head matches.

03/02/19 Manchester United Southampton 3: 2
01.12.18 Southampton Manchester United 2: 2
12/30/17 Manchester United Southampton 0: 0
Both teams look good in attack. “Southampton” in the current league distinguished by no less than two goals per match. Manchester United have not scored less than twice in their last seven away matches. Opponents score against each other in full-time matches too often. We are waiting for goals in both directions.
Our prediction – both will score for 1.80 at BC Betcity
