Match: Manchester United – Southampton Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Friday, 19 August, 2016
Start time: 20:00 UK
After the successful start of the 2016/17 season under the leadership of Jose Mourinho, Manchester United will face Southampton in the match of the second round of the Premier League.
Manchester United with Jose Mourinho now has two wins in their first two matches. “The Red Devils” won the Community Shield after success with 2:1 over the champion Leicester after on the start of Premie League beat Bournemouth 3:1 as a guest. The new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored one goal in both games and showed he was ready to lead the team to the title. We now expect the inclusion of Paul Pogba, ensuring that United will become even more formidable team for their rivals.
In the first round of the Premier League Southampton finished 1:1 with Watford at home. Nathan Redmond, who was attracted from Norwich this summer, scored his first goal for the team. Southampton impress last season under the leadership of Ronald Koeman, but now I do not know how things will go at Claude Puel. Without Graziano Pelle also “The Saints” not demonstrated a very good game against Watford and now have an even more difficult task in the forthcoming visit of “Old Trafford”.
Last season Southampton won his visit to “Old Trafford” with 1:0. Historically, they have just five wins from 39 matches in this stadium. This season we expect a better game of “The Red Devils”, so they are a favorite to win the three points. I expect Jose Mourinho to continue the winning move as manager of Manchester United and to consolidate the views of the fans that he is the right person for the job at Manchester United.
