Live in-play betting – 

Southampton host Manchester United in one of the most insignificant rescheduled fixtures of this season.

The Saints have not been very impressive in the second half of the season, although they managed to reach the final of the Capital One Cup.

This is one of their rescheduled games that was expected to see them climb up the league table but they have been out of form recently.

They are currently 9th in the league table with 45 points from 36 league games.

They could move to eight with a win in this fixture depending on West Brom’s result.

They have only one win from their last 6 league games and that came in their last league match against relegated Middlesbrough.

Manchester United have nothing to play for in this game as they have switched their mind to winning the Europa League and Qualifying for the Champions League.

They are likely going to field a team of reserves and youngsters in this match.

They are currently 6th in the league table with 65 points, 7 points Arsenal who are 5th.

They have won only 2 of their last 6 league games and are currently on a run of 2 straight losses.

They will want to get a result here to give them confidence going into the Europa League final.
