Expect A Low Scoring Draw As Southampton Host Man United

Wednesday 17th May 2017, 7.45pm - Southampton v Man United

The Premier League continues its long goodbye on Wednesday night as Southampton host Man United in the live Sky Sports game. This one was scheduled for TV with the hope that the Red Devils would still be in the top four hunt, but with those ambitions now gone, there is nothing but pride on the line in this one.

  • Southampton have won one of their last six Premier League matches
  • Man United are without a win in their last four Premier League matches

Two Out of Form Teams Clashing

This is a difficult one for punters with Southampton counting down the days until the end of the season, taking on a Man United team who have nothing to play for in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho has made it perfectly the clear that the Europa League is the only match on his mind and as such we can expect United to field a slightly weakened team.

United are without a win in their last four league matches as they have slipped out of contention for the top four, and their performance at Spurs on Sunday was a particularly meek one.

United have won their last two against Southampton though, including the League Cup Final, and an away win can currently be backed at 9/5 with Bet Victor.

Southampton have been stranded in mid-table for the whole of the season and following that defeat to Man United in the League Cup Final, their season has drifted badly. They will want revenge on Wednesday night though and punters can get 7/4 with bet365 about a Saints success.

Don't Expect Too Much Entertainment At St Mary's

It's fair to say that these two teams are not two of the great entertainers of the Premier League with neither proving to be overly dynamic in attack over the past couple of months.

Saints have scored just two goals in their last four matches, with both of those coming in the win over relegated Middlesbrough at the weekend, with Manolo Gabbiadini failing to build on his fine start in a Southampton shirt.

Charlie Austin is back in contention for a start and he somehow remains the top scorer for Southampton in a Premier League shirt despite the fact he has been out of action for months. The lack of goals on the south coast is alarming and there is growing unrest amongst the fans with Claude Puel under immense pressure as a result.

As for Man United, there season has been a very poor one with the most expensively assembled squad in football failing to even get close to the top four, let alone mount some sort of title challenge. They have a Europa League Final to play and all they will want out of this game against Southampton, is to avoid picking up any injuries.


With that in mind, we can expect this to be a tight cagey affair between two struggling teams, who cant wait to get this game out of the way. A draw looks the value at 23/10 with Sky Bet, whilst under 2.5 goals is also an attractive side punt.
