The tough fixtures keep coming thick and fast for Southampton, who welcome Manchester United to St Mary’s Stadium on Monday and Stan James makes Saints 7/4 to rise to the challenge by emerging triumphant.
However, the rejuvenated Red Devils, a 17/10 chance at BetVictor, are in confident mood at present, having won four on the spin so it’s hard to make a case for a home win, especially as Ronald Koeman’s team have suffered back-to-back defeats.
Nevertheless, they caused Man City plenty of problems on Sunday, particularly in the first half, and they can stop the rot by grabbing a point in this one, an outcome Ladbrokes chalk up at 12/5.
It looks like a contest in which both teams will find the net (7/10, Winner.com) so bet365’s 10/3 about a score draw isn’t without appeal and punters tempted to be a touch more ambitious can back a 1-1 scoreline at odds of 13/2 (BetVictor).
Southampton v Man Utd score draw – 10/3 (bet365)
