Manchester United will still be reeling from their embarrassing 7-0 defeat over Liverpool last weekend.

Erik ten Hag’s men will be keen to get their winning run back on track and with that heavy loss coming just a week after winning the EFL League Cup it was even more shocking.

Next up for United is Southampton.

The match betting ahead of the game thinks the Red Devils will get back to winning ways – they are 4/11 to get all three points, with the draw 4/1 and Southampton 8/1

The sides played earlier this season at St Mary’s and that ended 0-1 to United, but the Saints will gain hope from knowing they drew this fixture 1-1 last term.

In fact, 7 of the last 12 fixtures between the sides have ended with the points shared and we’ve also had 10 stalemates in the last 21 runnings.

Other betting options will be to side with both teams to score at 19/20 as this bet has paid out in 7 of the last 10 clashes, while the last 3 meetings saw Under 2.5 Goals. However, this run of low-scoring games came after some big-scoring clashes – 5 of the last 9 went Over 3.5 Goals. Including a 9-0 win for United in this fixture in 2021.

The scoring markets see Marcus Rashford at 3/1 (1st) or 21/21 (anytime) as the United striker looks to continue his fine scoring season. Southampton’s shortest-priced player is Adam Armstrong at 12/1 (1st) or 9/2 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that Southampton would love to win as they continue their battle to survive relegation, but you feel that United’s pride would have been dented from last week and the Saints might feel the full force oof that.

Both teams to score though is still a solid option at 10/11. Don’t forget United still let in 7 last week – even a dressing down from their manager isn’t going to change things overnight. Plus, the Saints will be buzzing after their 1-0 win over Leicester, which saw them hit 21 points and are back in the mix to survive the drop.
