Southampton vs Manchester United
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 1 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton).
The hosts have been poor this season. With just 1 win in their 13 matches they are in the relegation zone with just 8 points. The Saints have conceded 24 goals which is more than twice the goals they scored. The weak attacking is the reason why they had 5 draws and 7 defeats.
The team from Hampshire are winless in their last 6 games which include 3 defeats. Under 2.5 goals came in 3 of the recent 5 matches they played across all venues. One of those defeats was a 6-1 thumping away to Manchester City.
At home too they are on a 6 match winless streak. They managed to draw the last 2 home games against Watford and Newcastle. But against a better side like United things will be hard for them.
Mourinho’s tactics have failed twice in the last 2 league games for the former champions. After a 3-1 loss in the Manchester derby, they had a draw against Crystal palace. The Chosen One will be happy to get Southampton in the next game, so that he can possibly get his team back to winning form.
United are 7th in the league at the moment. They have conceded 21 till now; one more than what they scored. A win here would probably give them the 6th position in the table above Everton. They have lost only once and won twice in the last 5 games in all competitions. All 4 of those matches had a final score of more than 2.5 goals.
In the last 6 games on the road, the former champions have won 3 and lost 2. In all their recent 7 matches, the final score had more than 2.5 goals on the trot. With Martial on form they can expect goals on Sunday too.
