Manchester United (WWWWW) and Southampton (DWWLW) will meet on Monday, July 13th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 3:00 PM EST start time and it will be played at Old Trafford.
Manchester United is playing historically well as of late, unbeaten in its last 17 matches. Manchester United added another victory via a 3-0 win over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Thursday. Manchester United's defense has been incredible, as the boys in front of David de Gea have stepped up big-time throughout this incredible unbeaten stretch. Manchester United currently sits in 5th place in the Premier League standings, only one point behind Leicester City and two points behind Chelsea for 4th and 3rd respectively (at the time of me writing this). Manchester United will look for yet another victory at Old Trafford against a Southampton team that has actually played well recently.
Southampton is coming off a 1-1 draw to Everton on the road in its last match on July 9th. Southampton has won three of its last five matches, which includes a 1-0 victory over Manchester City. Southampton has scored eight goals in its last five matches, which is not too shabby, to say the least. Southampton is currently in 12th place in the Premier League table, one point behind Everton for 11th. Southampton will try to end Manchester United's streak of not losing, but to say it will be tough is an extreme understatement.
The last time Manchester United and Southampton met was on August 31st of 2019, in which the two teams drew 1-1 in front of the Southampton faithful.
There is nothing that can lead me to believe that Manchester United will struggle in this match, as United has played incredibly well against all opponents during this stretch. There is no team hotter in the entire Premier League than Man U, and I think the team's unbeaten streak will reach 18. I will take Manchester United -1.5 goals at -110 odds, as even though it is rather steep, there is no other side that I could imagine taking.
