Southampton vs Manchester United Match Preview
Manchester United have found a way not to win their last two matches, specifically from the penalty spot, and their sequence without an away win could be extended to eight games when they visit Southampton.
The Red Devils have missed costly spot-kicks against Wolves and Crystal Palace, but for which they may well have gone on to claim maximum points – although the late sucker punch they received as the Eagles won 2-1 at Old Trafford last weekend meant nothing could be taken for granted.
Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to Southampton, seeking a first victory on the road since the heady days of their Champions League triumph away to Paris Saint-Germain in early March – which ironically was preceded by a 3-2 home win against Saints and a 3-1 success at Crystal Palace.
United are warm favourites, but Southampton got themselves up and running this season with a 2-0 win at Brighton last weekend to put their first points on the board and followed up by progressing in the Carabao Cup courtesy of a solitary Michael Obafemi goal at Fulham.
Saints have made life awkward for United in the last few years and will believe they are due a victory, their latest one at home against these opponents being in 2003 – especially as Solskjaer is definitely without Southampton old boy Luke Shaw and maybe Anthony Martial.
But the advice here is to strike a balance between United’s better all-round play so far this term and their continued struggles to win on their travels, and therefore to back the draw.
