Southampton vs Manchester United Betting Preview 17 May

So there you have it: Chelsea are champions, Hull are down (along with Sunderland and Middlesbrough), Tottenham will finish second while Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal will duke it out for the last pair of Champions League places.

Manchester United vs FC Zarya Lugansk 2016

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have one game and one game only on their mind: the Europa League final against Ajax on May 24. Victory in Stockholm would see United return to the Champions League – their ultimate aim at the start of the campaign.

It’s no wonder that their Premier League form has fallen by the wayside then: after going unbeaten from October to April 23, they’ve now gone four without a win. Okay, so those were largely difficult fixtures (Man City, Arsenal and Tottenham away, Swansea at home), but their mindset is clear.

As for Southampton, it’s hard to get an accurate read. Stuffed by Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City, they defeated Middlesbrough last time out 2-1.

Will Mourinho rest players for this game? It’s quite possible, and for that reason we have to edge towards Southampton in the market.
