Southampton hosts Manchester United in a game from the 14th round of the English Premier League. Let’s take a look at this game in our predictions football 1×2 for today.
Southampton are clearly not in a good position at this moment. The Saints are currently 19th in the standings, being positioned in the relegation zone. Mark Hughes’ team have just 8 points won so far and a modest record of 1 win, 5 draws and 7 losses. In their last five games Southampton are not doing very well – three draws and two defeats.
In their previous game the Saints suffered a 2-3 defeat during the visit to Fulham at the Craven Cottage. Stuart Armstrong scored twice for Southampton, but Fulham were inspired by the arrival of their new manager Claudio Ranieri and managed to get the three points.
Manchester United are also not having the best possible season so far. The Red Devils are 7th in the Premier League standings with 21 points and a record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. Being 14 points behind the leader Manchester City is clearly not something to be proud of.
In their last two games United won just one point. They suffered a defeat in the derby against Manchester City at the Etihad and made a dissapointing 0-0 draw during the home game against Crystal Palace at the Old Trafford. It’s not a surprise that the manager Jose Mourinho is getting so much criticism at the moment. Some fans even want him sacked as soon as possible.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for today for the Premier League game between Southampton and Manchester United at the St. Mary’s. The obvious thing to say is that United are favourites here, but it was the same thing for them against Crystal Palace as well. Be careful with this one.
