Premier League action is back in town and on Sunday, Manchester United will be hosting Southampton at the historical ground of Old Trafford. The Red Devils have recently witnessed the most embarrassing defeat against Liverpool but the good news is that the team has revived their game and has come back to winning ways.
Manchester United are coming to play against Southampton after winning the Europa League fixture by 4-1 against Real Betis. This will be a huge boost in their confidence for the rest of the season.

We predict a win for Manchester United against Southampton by 2-1.
The betting tip is...
Both teams to score in first half
Erik Ten Hag will be happy with the ferocious performance his boys gave against Real Betis in the Europa League fixture. The hosts won the game by 4-1 and it was a team effort that led to a positive result for Manchester United. Currently, the Red Devils are sitting at the third spot in the point table and with every game, they are cementing their position in the Premier League.
Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are in the injury room and they have not recovered yet to be part of the upcoming fixture.
Predicted Lineup: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Martinez, Shaw, Sabitzer, Casemiro, Sancho, Fernandes, Garnacho, Rashford
The Saints have seen a gradual decline in their overall performance. Last year, Southampton finished the season in the fifteenth position but this year, the club are currently on the 19th spot. It means that if things continue the same way, we won’t see Southampton in the Premier League next year.
J. Larios is out of action due to his groin injury.
Predicted Lineup: Forster, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Salisu, Perraud, S. Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Elyounoussi, Adams, Broja
Manchester United have bounced back well after the 7-0 humbling they suffered at the hands of Liverpool. But they can’t take anything for granted as every match is crucial in terms of finishing in the top four. We expect United to win 2-1
