Mourinho’s long awaited official debut on Old Trafford is now close. Manchester United will start Day 2 of the Premier League, at home, on the 19th of August, against Southampton, a team which has annoyed them so much in the last few years.
The Portuguese coach will surely want to bring his team’s tally up to 6 points, while the Saints will try to avoid defeat. After all, coming with a point from Old Trafford can count as a win.
English Premier League Betting Tips & Odds – Manchester United vs Southampton
The Red Devils played good football on Day 1. Not great, but good football, with Mata, Ibra and Rooney all getting on the scoresheet, and Martial signing two assists.
The forwards are favorites to start against Southampton as well, but we might see Pogba’s re-debut as well as Smalling reclaiming his place in center defense. Manchester United looks powerful early on in the season, and they should be able to win the three points.
Meanwhile, Southampton’s game went perfectly against Watford, until someone had to put in the in the back of the net. They’ve shot no fewer than 24 times, only 6 of these finding their target. Nathan Redmond signed a debut goal, but will be frustrated that his team only managed a 1-1 draw against an obvious weaker team.
The Saints want to avoid defeat at Old Trafford and maybe use the pace of Long or Redmond to produce something on a counter-attack.
The game will be close, no doubt about that, but there are a few things which might be good betting ideas. Both teams to score is one of them – United’s fans will give them a lift, while Southampton won’t give up easily.
United is more likely to win than lose, so if you’re looking for a safe, easy money bet, try United to score or 1X. Ibrahimovic is the most likely goalscorer, especially against a team which relies on physical defending.
