Manchester United is back home for a weekend clash against Southampton, in the 25th week of the Premier League 2021-22 season.
After a change in the coaching staff, all the hopes of a change in fortunes seem to have come crashing down for Manchester United. Much was expected of Ralf Rangnick, when he was appointed as the head coach of arguably the most popular soccer club in the world, and he did deliver wins in his first couple of games. However, in the next 7 Premier League games, Manchester United has managed to pick up just 12 points out of a possible 21. They have again fallen out of the top 4, thanks to a 1-1 draw against last-placed Burnley. The team now needs to get its act together, and fast, if they want to be serious contenders for a Champions League finish.
Southampton on the other hand will be feeling pretty confident going into this game. The Saints have held Manchester City’s juggernaut to a draw, as well as have beaten Tottenham 3-2 in its last Premier League game. The team has also advanced into the 5th round of the FA Cup. However, winning in away games has been a problem for Southampton, as it has managed to win only 2 of the 11 games played on the road so far. However, facing a Manchester United team that is low on confidence, they will be looking towards bettering that record.
Match prediction and betting tips for Manchester United F. C. vs Southampton F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, on 12th February 2022.
Ralf Rangnick will need to take some bold decisions for this game and drop some names which have been weighing down on the team, including the likes of Harry Maguire. Cristiano Ronaldo, while showing his brilliance, has been unable to lift the morale of the team so far. Fred and Eric Bailly are unlikely to play this game due to fitness issues, while Mason Greenwood remains suspended. Alex Telles, who tested positive for the coronavirus, had recovered and may get a chance to play this weekend.
As for the visitors, coach Hasenhuttl will be missing out on Nathan Tella, Lyanco, Will Smallbone, and Alex McCarthy due to various injuries.
Manchester United will be looking to score a big win here in order to boost its confidence, and might just be able to do so, given its track record against the visitors, who may find it difficult to score.
Bet on Manchester United to win.
