    What are the odds?

    This is how the betting looks ahead of today's huge clash, as Manchester United look to get the better of a struggling Southampton.

    They are definitely in United's favour as you would expect, but don't be surprised if they drop points to Southampton today, we all saw what happened to Liverpool yesterday…

    • Manchester United 1/4
    • The draw 9/2
    • Southampton 10/1

    These odds are correct as of the time of publication according to Betfair.

    Red hot Rashford

    There is perhaps no player in the Premier League that has been as good as Marcus Rashford since the World Cup.

    United's talisman has 14 league goals and 3 assists to his name so far this season, as well as impressing in other competitions too.

    You would expect him to be involved again today if they are to get the better of Southampton today.

    Have your say

    On paper you would be silly not to back Manchester United today, with the form that the Red Devils have been in since the World Cup.

    However, Bournemouth against Liverpool yesterday showed us that you cannot write off a team in danger at any point.

      United welcome bottom side Southampton

      The Red Devils have a superb record against Southampton and are unbeaten in their last 14 games against the south coast side.

      The Saints last won at Old Trafford in 2016 and current form would suggest a comfortable win for Erik ten Hag's side.

      United are unstoppable at home and have scored two goals or more in each of their last 15 home games, a feat they have only managed four times in their history.
