Manchester United vs Southampton Betting Predictions and Odds
Does ManUnited jump to a CL seat?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils have rushed from win to win in the past few weeks. As a result, the gap to the Champions League places could always be reduced. On Monday evening, Manchester United against Southampton now has a great chance to climb to a top four spot for the first time since the fifth Premier League game day.
Thanks to the surprisingly clear bankruptcy of Chelsea with sensational climber Sheffiled United, Manchester United could now pass the blues. The prerequisite for this is that in the final duel of the 35th Premier League match between Manchester United and Southampton, the tip on home win is the right choice. The best bookmakers see this bet as extremely likely and offer a maximum of 1.33 for the success of the hosts.
This tip does not appear particularly lucrative, but in our article we present other options with good chances of success. The game begins at Old Trafford Stadium on Monday.
Manchester United – Statistics & current form
Neither the new champion Liverpool nor the dethroned champion Manchester City can currently call themselves the top-form team in the Premier League. When looking at the last six, the last eight and the last ten games, head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is number one in the form table. The Red Devils are absolutely “on fire” and, given their top form, have very good chances of making a comeback in the premier class.
Premier League record set
During the week, the Solskjaer team also set a new Premier League record. After beating Sheffield, Brighton & Hove Albion (3-0 each) and AFC Bournemouth (5-2), the Champions League contender won 3-0 at Aston Villa in Birmingham. As the first team in Premier League history, Manchester United celebrated four wins in a row with at least three goals difference.
This only underlines the outstanding shape of the past weeks and months. Cross-competition is the current fifth in the table for 17 games (13-4-0) without defeat. 18 games without bankruptcy were last under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 – this brand is to be discontinued on Monday.
The offensive enchants the league
The clear victories can be attributed on the one hand to a much more stable defensive, but mainly to the outstanding offensive. Some experts have wondered in the past few weeks whether the Red Devils actually need Jadon Sancho. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford (15 goals each season), teenager Mason Greenwood and creative spirit Bruno Fernandes form an outstanding offensive department.
Bruno Fernande’s new addition is a real asset. In his first ten Premier League games, he has 13 goal appearances (seven goals, six assists), more scorer points has never been collected in the first ten games.
Speaking of records – between Manchester United and Southampton, the penalty prediction for the Red Devils appears to be a good option. The Solskjaer team have already been awarded 13 (!) Penalties, there has never been more for a Premier League team in one season.
Probable line-up of Manchester United:
↳ de Gea – Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka – Pogba, Matic – Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood – Martial

Southampton – Statistics & current form
Sooner or later the Austrian coach Ralph Hasenhüttl would like to reach Europe with Southampton. However, this was not an issue in the current season and the fact that the team was able to get rid of all relegation worries weeks before the end of the season is considered a great success. After countless setbacks in the fall, the turnaround was successful and the Saints are in the secure midfield of the Premier League.
There is nothing to be won abroad against the Big Six
The view of the historical data definitely speaks against the guests. Out of the last 23 away games in the Premier League Southampton played against a “top six” club, only one could be won. In 17 of the 23 games, the journey home had to be started without counting. A point win would be a big surprise on Monday evening.
Ten points in five games since restart
However, the Hassenhütl-Elf is currently in strong shape. In the five previous games since the restart, the Saints collected a total of ten out of 15 possible points. The club’s only loss was at Arsenal London (0-2). For this, Southampton was able to bring Manchester City to its knees a few days ago and celebrated a 1-0 victory against the runner-up in front of a home crowd. That is also why the Red Devils have to be careful, the game will not be a sure-fire success.
Top scorer Danny Ings (19 goals) deserves special mention. With another goal, he could only be the second Southampton player to score at least 20 Premier League goals in one season (James Beattie succeeded with 23 goals in 2002/03).
Probable line-up of Southampton:
↳ McCarthy – Bertrand, Bednarek, Stephens, Walker-Peters – Redmond, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong – Adams, Ings
