Jose Mourinho is keen on getting a victory when his Manchester United take on Southampton this weekend. It is an extremely important match for the Red Devils, as they need to get a victory in order to stay in touch with Manchester City. After having spent an extraordinary sum of money, Manchester United are in danger of missing out on the Premier league title once again since the brilliance of City has been the overwhelming factor so far this season. Mourinho has tried to be defiant, but the game against Southampton can help his team find some form.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s team has been extremely poor so far this season and they come on the back of a big defeat against Tottenham. After having conceded five in this game, there is a high probability that Manchester United will be able to find the back of the net with the kind of chances that they have been creating in recent matches. The last two games for United have finished with a 2-2 score and it is highly likely that this upcoming match will also be a high scoring match. It is possible to back Manchester United at a very decent 1.40 to win the game. Southampton are being presented odds of 8.50 and this would not be a good choice.
United are expected to score plenty of goals, but the crucial element may be the Southampton team that has been able to score in decent fashion. As a result, bookmakers are offering prices of an even money in order to back both teams scoring at least once in the game. The possibility of United giving a clean sheet also looks likely with the Red Devils managing seven in 10 league matches at Old Trafford. In this is also available at a good price of 1.85.
