Manchester United vs Southampton: Prediction 

Manchester United must win this match if they want to qualify for next season’s Champions League. The Red Devils have fared decently under Ralf Rangnick, but many issues inside the dressing impacted their result, leading to a lack of balance in the squad. 

While Southampton have turned the tables around and haven’t lost a match in their last five fixtures. There were struggling early in the season but grew quickly, as the season progressed. 

This will be a tough contest for both clubs, and a draw on the card is expected.
