As the Red Devils continue their ascent up the Premier League table, Southampton struggles to resist poor performances. Will the hosts be able to maintain their position over Manchester United? Read 128Casino‘s Southampton vs Manchester United preview to find out what we think!
Hosts Southampton have been having poor luck lately with no wins in the last 3 matches played — the Saints lost the last 2 matches and drew against Aston Villa prior to those losses. Manchester United, on the other hand, are on the road to recovery under the leadership of Louis van Gaal with a hopeful 4 consecutive match wins under their belt. The challenge for the Red Devils now is to maintain their winning momentum and continue their winning ways. Despite the challenges faced by Manchester United and the stumbles they’ve taken, the club is presenting a united front and is working double-time to repair the damages inflicted by ex-manager Moyes. Although a little slow in showing fruition, it would seem that the Red Devils are once again restoring hope to their fans who have been disappointed for far too long.
With only a 1-point lead over Manchester United, hosts Southampton will be desperate to stem the winning streak of their opponents in order to maintain their advantage but given the host’s recent downtrend that is coupled with the declining form of key players, it will be an uphill task for Southampton. For this upcoming match against Southampton, Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney will be back in the saddle to lead the team after a short absence, which no doubt will boost team morale and confidence. After a string of successive wins, the Red Devils should have no problems entering this match in high spirits and they will be expected to win this one while on the road.
Prediction: Southampton 1-3 Manchester United
Brace yourself for a battle between two clubs who currently occupy the 2nd and 3rd spots on the Premier League table. Who will win? Read our latest Southampton vs Manchester City preview for the latest updates!
Southampton started this Premier League season in a surprisingly strong fashion and have defied many odds to come to the club’s current 2nd place positioning on the table today. There were even rumours or tip-offs prior to the start of the season that Southampton would be one of the teams that would likely face relegation. This weekend, the Saints of Southampton will be hosting Manchester City, who are just 2 points behind them in the 3rd spot on the Premier League table. If Manchester City is able to pull through with an away win in this match, the club will have the chance to leapfrog their way upward in the table and that is an entirely possible scenario as Manchester City’s team morale recently received a healthy boost thanks to a huge mid-week win over Bayern Munich. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero propelled the club to victory with a hat-trick against their European counterparts but will Aguero be capable of overcoming Southampton’s tight and solid defense this Sunday?
Prediction: Southampton wins 2-1
The Saints of Southampton are highly favoured to march onto the field of Hull City’s home ground, KC Stadium, to take home what is expected to be an effortless win. Southampton has a gleaming 2014/15 Premier League track record at present that’s further polished by the stunning 8-0 trashing they delivered to Sunderland. With only 1 loss out of the 6 Premier League matches they’ve played, Southampton is in the green and clear to win this one because by contrast, Hull City’s form does not quite compare with their opponent’s. In fact, Hull City will have their work cut out for them in trying to overcome the high spirits of the Saints.
Prediction: Southampton wins 2-0

Fresh from delivering an 8-0 thrashing to Sunderland, the Saints of Southampton are on a high induced by overwhelming victory. With a solid and good run thus far in this season of the Premier League, Southampton are the clear favourites to win in this match against the Potters of Stoke City. Aside from the boosted morale and high momentum gained from their largest Premier League victory to date, the Saints will be taking on Stoke City on home ground, thus further bolstering their chances of winning all 3 points. However, experts and analysts have cautioned that Southampton could get overconfident and end up being complacent. Still, in the event that complacency occurs, it should not be too difficult for the consistent Saints to recover and outperform the fluctuating form of Stoke City, no matter how hardy they may be. Southampton are highly favoured to clinch this match and to continue on their tremendous run of form this Premier League season.
Prediction: Southampton wins 2-0
