Manchester United To Bounce Back To Form With A Win To Nil Against Southampton

Manchester United are fifteen points adrift of Manchester City at the summit of the Premier League table after enduring a disappointing Christmas period but they can get back to winning ways in Saturday evening's live game with Southampton...

  • Since returning to the Premier League in 2012, Southampton have won two of 12 meetings with United in all competitions - Drawn Three, Lost Seven
  • Southampton have failed to score in their past three league games against United
  • Seven of United's eight home league wins this season have been to nil

Tips Manchester United win to nil    Best Bet @ 6 / 5  

Home And Away

Jose Mourinho has lambasted his team's defending in recent games but the Red Devils can get back to basics at Old Trafford, where they have won eight of their ten league outings this season.

David De Gea and co. have only conceded five goals on home soil so far and they are 1/3 odds-on for victory. The best bet is the United win to nil at 6/5 with Bet 365 and that has paid out in seven of United's ten home fixtures so far.

It looks a very decent bet when you consider Southampton have managed just seven goals on the road in the league and they are without their main goal threat, Charlie Austin, through suspension this weekend.

That doesn't bode well for a Southampton side that has gone 277 minutes without scoring a league goal in meetings with United.
Match Odds:

Head-To-Head

Saints have won just two of 12 Manchester United v Southampton clashes in all competitions since they returned to the top-flight in 2012 and they were beaten 2-0 when they previously visited Old Trafford last term.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored both goals in that game in Manchester and he has actually knocked in four goals in two appearances against the Saints, with Paddy Power going 10/3 for the Swede to score first.

Mourinho might be tempted to replace the misfiring Romelu Lukaku with his elder statesman but Lukaku actually has a very fine record against Southampton. The Belgian striker has notched six goals in nine appearances against Saturday's visitors, including the only goal in a 1-0 win at St Mary's in September, and he is 3/1 favourite to be first goalscorer (PaddyPower.com).
