The upcoming fixture of Manchester United and Southampton is to be held at Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester is all set to be an explosion. Who will win the match is a different question altogether because both the teams have enough firepower to make a blast on the ground. However, things are looking in favour of the home team Manchester United as they would try to take control of the match from the start with the likes of Pogba, Mata and Lukaku. Moreover, Manchester United is currently the second team on the points table with 13 wins and bagging 43 points whereas the visiting team has only registered four wins in the tournament and managed to settle at the 14th position on the league table with just 19 points.
Given the performances of both the teams in their last six matches in the English Premier League 2017-2018, it is expected that Manchester United will have the last laugh on Saturday. For Southampton, it is expected that their players would try to contain the situation and would like to register their fifth win of the tournament. After losing their last match to Tottenham Hotspurs, Southampton’s goalie Forster would try to keep as many shots as possible, away from the goalpost.

Manchester United was made to come from behind to secure a late point against Burnley on Boxing Day and have since fallen further behind Manchester City in the title race. A 5-2 loss to Tottenham means Southampton have now failed to win in seven Premier League outings, which has seen them drop just two points above the relegation zone. United have lost only one of their last 27 home league matches, so Saints’ task to return to winning ways doesn’t get much easier here. While United have underwhelmed of late, the hosts should win this one.
