Manchester United: Expected to find it tough against Southampton

Manchester United: Expected to find it tough against Southampton

Manchester United are tipped to struggle against Southampton on Saturday, but Arsenal and Chelsea are firmly expected to chalk up home wins.

As always on a Friday, we have a number of features to help you decide what to bet on this weekend.

Trading Views Podcast:

Tim Clement is joined in the studio this week by Sky Bet's Dale Tempest, SkySports.com's Pete O'Rourke and Sky Sports News Radio's Dave Reed, and the trio of tipsters all believe there is the potential for a shock at Old Trafford on Saturday when Manchester United host Southampton.

Manchester City are also tipped to endure a difficult afternoon in their game at West Ham, while not even top-of-the-table Liverpool won the unanimous backing of our experts.

The trio did agree, however, that neither Arsenal nor Chelsea should suffer too many problems against Norwich and Cardiff, while West Brom to win at Stoke is described as "one of the bets of the weekend".

Listen to the latest Trading Views Podcast to hear what the tipsters say about your team's game this weekend.
