Southampton vs Manchester United Prediction: Premier League Match on 29.11.2020
There is an interesting fixture at St Mary’s this weekend, as Southampton will be looking for the three points that they need to go back into the top four of the Premier League.
Premier League Preview
It has been an excellent start to the season for Southampton in 2020-21, and they will be looking to continue that with another huge win this weekend against Manchester United. The Saints have won five of their nine games this season, and have been beaten on just two occasions. However, their recent form has been superb, as they are unbeaten in six coming into this fixture. Southampton have won four of these six fixtures, and will be looking to return to winning ways after being held last time out by Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Saints were excellent in that fixture, and would have considered themselves unfortunate to not have taken all three points. Theo Walcott scored his first goal for the club since returning from Everton, but a late Wolves equaliser means that the Saints had to end the weekend in sixth place.
Manchester United have been far too inconsistent throughout this season, but they have built up a run of steam coming into this fixture. The Red Devils have won their last three in all competitions coming into this fixture, but they were fortunate to have won their last Premier League game. United stumbled over the line against West Bromwich Albion, as Bruno Fernandes scored on his second attempt from the spot after VAR drama. It was a much more routine win for United in midweek, with Fernandes once again being the star man as he scored twice as United won 4-1 at home to Istanbul Basaksehir. Daniel James and Marcus Rashford also scored in that Champions League win.
Southampton vs Manchester United Head To Head
United have won just once against the Saints in the last five meetings, with that win coming at Old Trafford in March 2019. United haven’t won on their last two visits to St Mary’s, with the match last season ending in a 1-1 draw.
Southampton vs Manchester United Prediction
United have finally found some consistency to their performances, but they will need to maintain that to continue moving up the league table. This will be a difficult game for United, as Southampton have been excellent so far this season. An entertaining score draw could be the best bet.
