Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has given his prediction for Sunday’s Premier League game between Manchester United and Southampton.
Owen told BetVictor: “Manchester United looked outstanding in that home win over Leeds.
“Don’t get me wrong, I think Leeds made it easy for them but some of United‘s play was superb. Pogba and Fernandes were sensational and created chance after chance.
“I was glad to see Greenwood on the scoresheet and believe that he really could become a world-class striker. United are still to add Sancho and Varane to the starting eleven so they are looking good at the moment.
“Southampton started well at Everton and new man Adam Armstrong took his goal superbly. The way they faded in the second half is worrying though and aside from Armstrong, I don’t see where the goals can come from.
“They conceded the second most amount of goals in the league last year, and I don’t see much improvement in that area so far. I can’t see anything but a United win here. They looked in great form last week and I fancy them to exploit what is an error-prone Saints defence.”
Owen’s Prediction: Southampton 1-3 Man United.
