The Monday night match is between Manchester United and Southampton. The United have made history last time out, becoming the first team to win four consecutive Premier League (PL) matches by a margin of at least three goals. They were winning at HT despite a -1 handicap in all four of those games, and enter this clash on a ten-game unbeaten PL run (W7, D3).
The hosts have won four straight PL home games, winning despite a -1 handicap in all (and a -2 handicap in three). Their 5-2 win last time out here was also their ninth PL home win from ten this season in which they led at HT, but did end a run of five consecutive competitive clean sheets.
Southampton have lost just one of their five games post re-start (W3, D1, L1) after netting the opener in four. They’ve now gone unbeaten in 14 of the 17 PL matches this term in which they scored first (W11, D3, L3), but the last five league games that they conceded the opener, they lost.
The visitors have won six of their last nine PL away games (W6, D1, L2), and ahead of this round, are positioned in the PL away table’s top five. In fact, after Matchday 34, the ‘Saints’ have scored first in a joint-league high 70.59% of their road trips, and that’s despite 58.82% of their away games being level at HT.
Players to watch: Mason Greenwood has scored in three consecutive PL games (and before HT each time) becoming only the second player under 21 to do so in Man United’s history. Meanwhile, Danny Ings netted the opener in Southampton’s previous three away matches.
Stat attack: Man United have scored in both halves in 58.82% of their PL home games.
Southampton have conceded 69.56% of their PL away goals after HT.
Only one of the last 17 competitive H2Hs saw the teams separated by a 2+ goal margin at FT.
