Southampton vs Manchester United Betting Tips
Southampton’s list of failures won another item on Tuesday, November 27. Complying with the commitment of the League Cup of England that had been postponed, the team was eliminated. After a goalless draw against Leicester, at the home of the rival, was beaten in the decision by penalties.However, this is certainly the club’s smallest problem, which has only eight points (one win, five draws and seven losses) and occupies the eighteenth place in the Premier League, the first in the relegation zone.The difference for Burnley, seventeenth, is only one point, but the 11 games without a win (six draws and five losses) and the second consecutive season in which the team attends the last rankings positions cause fans and most likely also to coach Mark Hughes.For the game this Sunday, the situation is further complicated by the fact that the coach probably can not count on two of his attackers. A low is certain. The Irishman Shane Long (nine English Premier League matches 2018/2019, no goal), with an ankle injury, was vetoed by the medical department. Another still depends on re-evaluation. This is Danny Ings (11 games, four goals), in the process of recovery of contusion in the thigh.Southampton have the third worst attack of the Premier League. He made 10 goals in 13 matches. Only Huddersfield and Crystal Palace, with eight goals in the same number of matches, show inferior performance.

Manchester United also had a midweek appointment. He was happier than Southampton, though, as usual, he did not show brilliant football. In front of the fragile Young Boys of Switzerland, they won 1-0 at Old Tradfford with a goal scored in the second half by Belgian midfielder Fellaini.It was enough to secure qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League. With ten points (three wins, one draw and one defeat), the team is runner-up of Group H, which has Juventus in the lead with 12.The coach Jose Mourinho was one of the most enthusiastic in celebrating a victory that can be considered mere obligation. A sign that he knows that success at UCL (Uefa Champions League) is his lifeline. If it had not been for the continental tournament campaign he would most likely have been fired. After all, the performance of the English Premier League is far below expectations.In the thirteenth round, United, at home, did not pass the draw with Crystal Palace. With 21 points (six wins, three draws and four defeats), he is seventh in the standings, even out of the continental tournament qualifying zone next season.For the match at St. Mary’s, Mourinho must have to live with casualties in the defensive sector. Matteo Darmian (two matches in English League 2018/2019, without a goal), Diogo Dallot (still without performances), Victor Lindelof (12 matches, no goal) and Marcos Rojo ( still without performances).

United have not been beaten by Southampton for five games. They were three wins and two draws in the period. Last season, the Reds won 1-0 as Premier League visitors and, at home, were no more than goalless.
Even with the team needing to score, coach Mark Hughes does not launch Southampton on the attack. Mourinho, despite justified fame of retrenchment, even positions United in a more offensive way, although this does not necessarily bring the expected results. Thus, the prognosis in the equality ends up being good option for the meeting of this Saturday in St. Mary’s.
