Southampton vs Manchester United Bet Builder Tip – A 5/1 Prediction that sees United win again
Manchester United are finally back in the win column in what was one of the club’s most memorable evenings of the past three years. In fact, by defeating Liverpool on Monday night, Erik ten Hag’s side have both moved ahead of their rivals in the table after three games and now registered their first win over the Reds in the Premier League since 2018.
This can’t, however, look past the torrid displays in the league so far this season, despite how well they played at Old Trafford last time out. United still sit with seven goals let in after three games and just two goals of their own, and this game is arguably just as big as the Liverpool clash in terms of setting a tone early on in the new season.
Southampton were backed by many to go down this year, but so far, a Che Adams-inspired beginning has seen them lose just once from the four games. On the other hand, it does look like United may have clicked here and their season should kick on from this point.

OVER 2.5 GOALS
Every game so far for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men has ended with over 2.5 goals. First up was the 4-1 demolition by Tottenham Hotspur, before they came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Southampton.
What’s more, a 2-1 victory away to Leicester City and a 3-0 win over Cambridge United in the EFL Cup has seen this trend continue with now 15 goal involvements for Southampton after four games.
United saw over 2.5 goals come in against Liverpool on Monday night, because despite their excellence in attack, they still couldn’t keep a clean sheet with Mohamed Salah scoring late on. Ten Hag’s side also lost 4-0 to Brentford, while a 2-1 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion means over 2.5 goals have come within each game for them too.
RASHFORD 2 OR MORE SHOTS ON TARGET
Marcus Rashford looked back to his very best in the win over Liverpool. The United youth product scored in the second half with a well-taken finish, and after narrowly missing Alisson’s goal with an effort minutes later, it looks like the Englishman has slowly worked his way back to some form.
Rashford only has two goals and four assists from 11 games against the Saints, but with him not losing a single one of those 11 fixtures, he’ll be licking his lips at the prospect of facing a weakened Southampton defence.
FERNANDES 1 OR MORE SHOTS ON TARGET
Fernandes was previously a guarantee for shots on target when he first signed for United, but since the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, the United star’s goals and overall output up top has significantly decreased. On the other hand, with United winning without Ronaldo last time out, he could sit on the bench again which allows for Fernandes to do his best work.
At the same time as Ronaldo’s suspected absence, this could be the game where the midfield mastermind of Casemiro slots into the United side, allowing for more of an attacking force from Fernandes. What’s more, if Ronaldo is off the pitch, his compatriot will be on penalty duty too.
MAN UNITED TO WIN
I do think United will win here. They’ve had a solid record against Hasenhüttl’s side in recent years, and it was only two campaigns ago in which they smashed them 9-0. Only time will tell if ten Hag’s tactics and inspiration from Monday night will roll into the season on a more consistent basis, but after the win against Liverpool, it’s tough to back against them.
