Manchester United vs Southampton Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways this midweek in the Premier League as they host Southampton. The match schedules for Tuesday at Old Trafford with kickoff at 11:15 pm.

The Red Devils have only one point from their last two matches in the league, while Southampton suffered three straight losses in England’s top flight while dropping down to 11th position in the table.

Leicester City fell short of a surprising 3-1 loss to Leeds United last weekend, meaning that Ole Gunnar’s side will enter Tuesday’s match in the second position in the table. This is despite dropping points at Arsenal on Saturday.

United was on record to respond to a shocking 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United with their trip to Emirates. However, two missed chances by Edinson Cavani were enough to share the spoils for both sides. The draw means rivals Manchester City are three points ahead with a game in hand.

Solskjaer’s team failed to convince in big teams this season, but a return of 41 points from 21 matches is an excellent record. United have only conceded 27 times this, which is one of the poorer records in the division.

Southampton enters the match following a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, with Ross Barkley scoring the only goal shortly before the half time break.  The Saints are without a win since defeating Liverpool.
