Manchester United take on Southampton in a cracking Premier League encounter at Old Trafford this weekend and the Red Devils, predicted as favourites for this game by online sportsbook, will be looking to climb up the league table with a home win.

After a mid-season slump, Louis Van Gaal’s side are back to winning ways and can get back into the title race if they can put together a run of victories.

Manchester United have won 3 of their last 4 games after an 8 game winless run that started back in November.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is also back amongst the goals and after a morale-boosting win at Anfield last week, the home side will be full of confidence this week.

As for Southampton, Ronald Koeman has had a very poor start to the season so far and the Saints will be a significant improvement if they are to come away with anything from Old Trafford this weekend.

The away side have been inconsistent and shaky at the back. However, they are showing signs of recovery with two back to back wins and will look to pull off an upset at Old Trafford this week.
