Football journalist Artur Petrosyan gave a forecast for the match of the 35th round of the Premier League season-2019/20 Manchester United – Southampton. According to him, Manchester United will take three points in this meeting.
Manchester United are now one of the most entertaining teams in the Premier League. Few could have thought about 15 rounds ago that the Solskjaer team would give people pleasure with their game, and this is exactly what is happening now, – says Artur Petrosyan. – Three major victories in a row, a lot began to turn out, excellent attack, Pogba returned to the center of the field, having formed an excellent duet with Matic, scored for the first time since April last year. Bruno Fernandes fit in well in front of them – in February he made his debut for Manchester United, but has already become the best assistant in the team. In terms of play, Manchester United are doing well now, the team continues to progress. If we manage to get rid of the ballast and make a couple of spot acquisitions, then United can claim at least the top four next season. “
Petrosyan notes: “If something suddenly does not work out for this team, then people in black always come to the rescue, as it was in the previous match. Aston Villa looked great for the first half hour, United did not do much, but they got a penalty out of nowhere. The video assistants confirmed and assigned a penalty for it is not clear for what. In a word, even if suddenly something doesn’t work, there are those who will help ”.
“As for Southampton, they are one of the best teams in their game since the restart of the season. The team looks great physically, the pressure works great – everything that the “saints” were famous for in their best times, it all works. It seems to me that Southampton will fight here, but, most likely, Manchester United will win here, but it is quite possible that they will miss. “Southampton” is a lively team, it will shake your nerves. Manchester United will take their three points, will continue to fight for getting into the Champions League, but will miss, ”the football journalist emphasizes.
Manchester United are ranked 5th in the Premier League with 58 points. Southampton 12th with 44 points. In the first place in the Premier League – Liverpool, which won the championship ahead of schedule, Jurgen Klopp’s team has 93 points.
