Manchester United v Southampton

Manchester United vs Southampton has all the ingredients for an interesting match-up in this weekend’s early Saturday kick-off, so we have our Manchester United v Southampton Premier League betting tips 12/02/2022 for you. United are coming under pressure following some sub-par performances. They face a tough test against a Southampton team on the up after they showed impressive recent form. Will the Saints be able to cause another shock result? This fixture kicks off at 12:30p.m on Saturday and the game will be shown live on BT Sport. 

Team News/Form

Man United have failed to win in their last two since the winter break. The Red Devils crashed out of the FA Cup after a 1-1 draw and penalty defeat against Middlesbrough. Then, the Manchester club travelled to Burnley and drew 1-1 again, despite leading in the first half. Southampton produced an incredible display to come back from 2-1 down to win 3-2 against Spurs away in mid-week. The result followed an extra time 2-1 win against Coventry in the FA Cup and a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Man City at home in the league.

In terms of team news, United due Fred and Alex Telles are ruled out through illness. Defender Eric Bailly will face a late fitness test after returning from the AFCON. Southampton’s Lyanco (thigh), Alex McCarthy (thigh) and Nathan Tella (groin) are all out, but Nathan Redmond could return.

Match Winner Betting Odds

Firstly, looking at the match winner odds for Man United vs Southampton, the home side appears to have an advantage among the bookies. Despite shock results against Middlesbrough and Burnley, United remain in decent home form in the Premier League. Ralf Rangnick’s side has won four of their last five league games at Old Trafford. As a result, Novibet will provide the best odds of 63/100 for a home win. After some very inconsistent form at the beginning of the season, Southampton has picked up some impressive results recently. The south coast club thrashed Brentford 4-1 and beat Tottenham 3-2 in two of their last four league matches. But, they remain outsiders for an away win at 5/1, provided by SportNation. Our tip this week is to back a draw at Old Trafford, as there is good value here. The sides drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture at St Mary’s this season, and Southampton are hard to beat after going unbeaten in eight of their last nine in all competitions. At 10/3, provided by SpreadEx, there is good value on a draw.

BTTS Betting – Yes

For some additional value in the Man United vs Southampton match, BTTS is a solid option. Clean sheets have been a rarity for these sides in recent matches. United have seen BTTS in four of their last five in all competitions. Southampton has also scored and conceded in their last nine matches. With six of the last seven meetings between these sides producing BTTS results, there is decent value on SBK’s 13/16 odds for more goals at Old Trafford. 

Anytime Goalscorer Betting Tips

The anytime goalscorer market is an interesting one for this fixture. Firstly, looking at Man United’s squad, there are few obvious picks on recent form as they have had five different scorers for their last six goals. However, Marcus Rashford has scored two in his last four and there are good returns at 23/12, provided by SBK for the forward to score again. But, the best value comes from the Saints’ ranks. There are two clear picks this weekend for Southampton goalscorers, Che Adams and Mohamed Elyounoussi. Adams has five goals in his last ten appearances, and he netted the winner against Spurs in mid-week. Sporting Index have the best odds for Adams to score at 33/10. But Elyounoussi is the better. He has scored two in his last three, and SBK will provide 6/1 odds for another goal from the Norwegian. 

United’s confidence is sorely lacking, and they need to find form quickly to salvage hopes of a top-four finish. Southampton are tough to beat and will have confidence after some impressive recent results. Please ensure you always gamble responsibly.
