Southampton vs Man Utd – Premier League
Wednesday 17th May 19:45, St. Mary’s
Match Preview and Betting Tips
The Saints have the chance to end the season on a high a pinch 8th spot away from West Brom, but with the pair on 45 points each and 2 games left to play Southampton must better the Baggies results.
Manchester United provide the opposition at St. Mary’s tomorrow and while the Red Devils could still yet finish above Arsenal and claim 6th place, it appears as if Mourinho’s men have their eyes solely fixated on the Europa League final.
The hosts looked like their season was petering out but a weekend win over relegated Middlesbrough has put the Saints back into contention for a top 8 finish, which would mark a decent achievement for French manager Puel who has received some criticism of late.
United head the form guide of the two sides with two wins, three draws and one defeat from their last six matches. Southampton have only won once during that period and lost three times, but the hots have the chance to pick up back to back league wins tomorrow night.
United are not the same without top goalscorer Ibrahimovic, and with the Europa Cup final not far away Mourihno cannot afford to lose anymore of his key players and will likely rotate his squad for this game.
With all that in mind I’ve decided to go with a draw and under 2.5 goals being scored, as neither side have looked capable of scoring a bunch of goals of late. I’ve also gone with both Romeu and Fellaini to get booked and for each team to have at least 2 corners in each half.
