Man Utd Has Slight Edge to Win on Sunday

Southampton will be playing host to Man Utd on Sunday in a battle between two teams that are trending in opposite directions.

Man Utd has gotten their season off to a respectable start, posting a 3-1-1 record over their first five games of the year. This puts Man Utd in fourth place, tied with Arsenal with a single game in hand. With a win on Sunday, Man Utd could vault in front of West Ham and Leicester City to take over sole possession of second place.

Southampton, on the other hand, currently has a record of 1-3-1 and is three points ahead of the teams that are currently slated for relegation. In short, Southampton needs to turn things around quickly or else they will suffer a lost season.


Man Utd, fresh off of a Champions League loss to PSV Eindhoven last week, will be looking to rebuild some positive momentum.

Here are the current betting odds for Southampton vs Man Utd as of this moment:

Southampton, 3.00
Draw, 3.00
Man Utd, 2.50

As you can see, Man Utd has the slight edge to win, though neither team has better than even money odds of winning.

According to the oddsmakers, the likeliest outcome of Sunday's contest is a 1-1 draw (6.50), followed by a 1-0 win for Man Utd.


Manchester United has had an up and down season so far, so it will be interesting to see if they can reclaim some of their lost momentum on Sunday against Southampton. As mentioned, Man Utd has a golden opportunity to move into second place in the EPL, ahead of teams such as Chelsea and Arsenal.
