Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

We are once again tipping Bruno Fernandes for captaincy in this fixture. The Portuguese can do no wrong at the moment. After a rather quiet Euros, he started the Premier League with a bang scoring a hat-trick with three shots on goal.

Mason Greenwood can shine once again as the leader of the attack. He scored a well-taken goal against Leeds last time and was heavily involved in all attacking play.

Differential Pick

Luke Shaw is our choice of differential pick. The left-back can rack up the points at both ends of the pitch and has high assist potential. He had a goal and five assists last season.

SOU vs MUN Dream11 Teams

Goalkeeper – A McCarthy
Defenders – L Shaw, V Lindelof, A Wan-Bissaka, M Salisu
Midfielders – P Pogba, J Ward-Prowse, S Armstrong, B Fernandes, J Sancho

Forwards – M Greenwood

Likely Winner:
Manchester United has had a good record against Southampton over the years. This fixture has seen a lot of goals in the past, but it is hard to see where the goals will come from for the Saints. The SOU vs MUN Today Match Prediction odds are in favor of a Manchester United win by two or more goals.
