The Reds Devils remain unbeaten in five starts and will hope to keep it going when they visit the Saints

St. Mary’s Stadium will be the venue of Saturday afternoon’s Premier League encounter between Southampton and Manchester United.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s side were able to secure a narrow 1-0 win at struggling Crystal Palace last week thanks to a sixth minute Steven Davis strike. The south coast outfit will now begin a series of games against top opposition and are quoted at (5.25) with Nairabet to start off to a winning note from here.

For United, they thumped Everton 4-0 at Old Trafford to stay joint top of the log with cross town rivals Manchester City. It’s been an unbeaten start for Jose Mourinho’s charges in five games, their best in quite a while. They’ll therefore fancy their chances to win at odds of (1.75).

Steven Davis, Southampton

The Red Devils last away outing at Stoke City ended in a draw. Another one in another road trip is available at odds of (3.75) with the same firm.

Southampton have lost 24 Premier League games against Manchester United which is the most against a single opponent. This is good reading for the 21 time champions in a bid to leave the south coast without losing at (1.20).

The men from Manchester have won 14 of a possible 18 points in their last six league visits to St. Mary’s. They are offered to win to nil at (2.65).

The Saints have failed to score in eight of their last 10 league games at home. This points to how poor they have been and odds of (2.15) give their visitors the chance to keep a clean sheet.

Romelu Lukaku Manchester United

United have scored more late goals than another side in the Premier League so far this season. Nairabet quotes them at (1.55) to net the game’s last goal.

55% of Romelu Lukaku’s last 22 Premier League goals have been scored from the 80th minutes onwards. Backing the big Belgian to close proceedings at St. Mary’s comes in at a big price of (4.20).
