Southampton

For 38 rounds of the past season, Southampton has not managed to establish a stable game. The team had 12 victories and seven peaceful outcomes, which eventually brought the 15th place. In addition, the “saints” showed the worst result in the Premier League in terms of the quality of defense.

At the end of the season, Ralf Hasenhuettl's charges beat Crystal Palace (3:1) and Fulham (3:1), followed by two losses in a row.

Over the summer, Adam Amstrong from Blackburn (17.7 million), Romian Pierro from Brest (12 million) and Valentino Livramento (5.9 million) came to reinforce the team.

The start of the new championship was unsuccessful. The away match in Liverpool brought the first defeat. The Red-Whites opened the score in this duel, but Everton responded with three goals, which brought the first fiasco.

Smallbon, who has a knee injury, will not play today.

Manchester United

Last season "Manchester United" for the first time in several years climbed to the top of the standings, but did not last long there. For 38 rounds the Mankunians chalked up 21 wins and 11 draws, which brought 74 points and second place. The gap from the champion fellow countrymen was only 12 points.

At the finish of the tournament, the Red Devils drew and finished the tournament with success against Wolverhampton (2:1). At the end of the year, Manchester United scored 73 times, of which 18 goals were scored by Fernandes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's wards were unlucky in the Europa League final, where United lost the trophy to Villarreal only in a series of 11-meter strikes.

The main purchase of the team can be called the move from Dortmund to Jadon Sancho for 85 million. In addition to him, Rafael Varane came from Real Madrid. 40 million euros were paid for the defender.

In the first match of the new Premier League championship, the vice-champion defeated Leeds (5:1).

Rashford, Telles, Henderson, Bayi, Varane, Jones and Cavani, who are still in quarantine, will not play today.

Prediction

There are rivals of different classes, who have different tasks for the season and completely different financial capabilities. "Southampton" is still far from optimal shape, which was shown by the first round. Manchester United kicked off powerfully, thereby declaring their intentions to enter the battle for victory in the Premier League from the very first match. We will give preference to guests.

Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-1) at Manchester United and we bet on this on the line of BC 1xBet with the odds of 2.11.

We assume that it will not do without goals scored. The Saints will play defensively, hoping to keep the favorite's onslaught, but in this line, problems appeared even with Everton.

Second bet is for Manchester United total over 2 goals in 2.19.
