Here are some key stats to help you in your quest.
Who will win the game?
Unless you have a strong reason, it’s not normally common practise to bet against a side that is unbeaten in 17 straight games and looking for its sixth straight win in all competitions. But, with Manchester United only winning one of their last four games against Southampton, you could certainly make a case for the Saints getting a point away at Old Trafford.
Will the away club earn a clean sheet?
Exactly seven days ago, Southampton took on the other Manchester club and pulled off a sensational shock as they claimed a 1-0 victory. That game was played at St. Mary’s stadium and even the most hardcore of Saints fans will admit that luck was certainly on their side that day. The job at Old Trafford won’t be any easier however, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are capable of keeping the doors closed. In fact, the south coast side have managed two clean sheets from their last five games.
Which will be the highest scoring half?
If there are goals to be scored, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if they come early on in the contest. The majority of Manchester United’s goals over the past couple of weeks have come in the first half while both of Southampton’s efforts this week have also come inside the first 45 minutes.
How many passes will Harry Maguire make?
Man United’s Harry Maguire is fifth on the list of players who have completed the most passes this season. The defender averages around 66 passes per games with a success percentage of 86.6%. With United needing a win in order to improve their top four bid, they’re likely to go on the front foot. This could give Maguire plenty of time on the ball meaning he could very well hit the 60+ mark again.
