Goals on the cards between two teams not to be trusted

<div><h2>Southampton v Manchester Utd</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/southampton-fc-vs-manchester-united-3838797/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow"><strong>Saturday 31<sup>st</sup> August at St Mary’s</strong></a></p><h2>Team Previews</h2><p><strong>Southampton</strong></p><p>Ralph Hasenhüttl has started to stamp his own identity on this South Coast club. New signings have arrived in key areas, Moussa Djenepo last weekend sprung off the bench and scored within 78 secs of his introduction, If this is a sign of things to come then £14m could be an absolute bargain. An injury midweek to Nathan Redmond could mean a first home start for the Mali international. Southampton like to play high tempo football at St Mary’s, that suits Danny Ings and Che Adams two big money purchase’s in the summer who will relish playing their part against the mighty in name Manchester Utd. The defence has switched from a flat back four to a three on occasions, giving the full backs license to push forward much earlier.</p><p><em><strong>Key Strengths: Outworking their opponents</strong></em></p><p><em><strong>Key Weakness: Over committing in attack </strong></em></p><p><strong>Manchester Utd</strong></p><p>Will the real Manchester Utd please step forward, after gaining just one point in the last two games. Injuries and loss of individuals form are reasons Ole Gunnar Solskaer may juggle his pack this weekend. The Red Devils must turn up attack and be ruthless to get back to winning ways. It is strange to say but confidence could again become an issue for this International laden squad if they don’t produce soon. Two Missed penalties in the last two games have not helped the cause. With the International break on the horizon 3 points, goals and a performance would help ease the pressure that comes with playing for one of the biggest clubs in the World.</p><p><em><strong>Key Strengths: Pace on counter attack</strong></em></p><p><em><strong>Key Weakness: Unreliable individuals</strong></em></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>We have a perfect recipe for goals in this Premier League encounter. A confident Southampton at home meet a wounded Manchester Utd where nothing but 3 points will do. End to end attacking from the start it expected with the game stretched allowing individual battles to commence. Goal scoring chances should be a plenty with the attacking styles of both teams and personnel. I am not silly enough to try and call a winner in a game where neither team can be trusted to put their best foot forward. Goals for me should be a given.</p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Premier League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Top Tip: Over 2.5 goals at 2.0 with Betfair</strong></em></a></div>
