Match Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips for Manchester United vs Southampton English Premier League on Sunday, 29 November 2020 at the St. Mary’s Stadium.

Manchester United travel to Southampton for the English Premier League clash on Sunday and we expect a high scoring affair with both teams hitting top gear in recent weeks.

The Red Devils had to sweat hard to earn three points against West Brom last week, but they were on fire in the midweek Champions League clash against Turkish outfit Basaksehir and grabbed a stunning 4-1 win.

That is their third win on the trot across all competitions and Solskjaer and his boys will be once again put under the microscope for scrutiny if any slip up happens at the Saint Mary’s Park.

The Saints are on an excellent run on their own and their 1-1 draw with Wolves last Monday stretched their unbeaten run to 7 in the English Premier League.

Southampton have no European games and they were knocked out from the EFL cup in September and therefore they have a slight advantage with the extra time to prepare for the league fixture and this is certainly bringing in dividends.

Nonetheless, their home record since getting thrashed by Spurs 2-5 in the first home game of the season is a hattrick of 2-0 wins. This explains why Manchester United must expect a tough task on Sunday afternoon.

Southampton vs Manchester United Head-to-head

Manchester United are unbeaten in the last 9 h2h meetings with Southampton, 4 wins and 5 draws.

Moreover, the Saints have scored in all Premier League games since their matchday 1 defeat to Palace whereas the Red Devils netted 19 goals in 7 away games across all competitions this season.
