So Manchester United are back, or perhaps Wayne Rooney is back. Either way the Red Devils are starting to gain some momentum and their favorite boy is scoring again so things are looking better at the Old Trafford. That being said, this side is still a long way off their goal and they will head into this weekend knowing that they still have a ton of pressure on their shoulders. This weekend Van Gaal and his players will be at home as the Saints come marching in.
Southampton are a team that can be so good when they are on song but this season that good form has only been found in patches and this must be something frustrating for the fans. That being said they are coming off two straight wins and will have a lot of confidence as they head into this weekend and into Old Trafford.
Manchester United on the other side of the coin will also be feeling read hot and they will be hoping that Wayne Rooney can keep scoring. That being said, they are still not a great side and things really need to change. This transfer window is a big point for this club and so far nothing has really happened so I am not sure how they will go but I guess the best thing is to back them while they are hot.
As far handicapping, this game is not a great one to put money on. United should get a win at home but honestly I don’t trust Van Gaal and his players enough to put money on them. I think that if we want to bet, taking the under 2.5 goals is the way to go since United play that kind of game. This isn’t great value but if we have to bet it is probably the best one.
