United failed to beat Leicester and Burnley over Christmas and are looking behind them at the chasing pack in the Premier League table rather than ahead at Man City.

But the Saints have failed to win any of their last seven league games (D3, L4) and Mauricio Pellegrino’s side were thrashed 5-2 by Spurs at Wembley on Boxing Day.

Last season United won this fixture 2-0 and they are 2/5 favourites with Coral, but Southampton – who are available at best odds of 10/1 with Stan James – won both of their previous league games here at Old Trafford by a 1-0 scoreline (25/1 Betfair).

It’s hard to place too much faith in either side at present, so we’ll go for a 1-1 draw at 9/1 with Bet365 – who refund losing Correct Score bets on all matches that end 0-0.

In what could be a tighter game than some expect, we’ll also go for a 1-0 home win at 13/2 with William Hill, plus Draw/United in the HT/FT market at best price 17/5.
