Premier League form guide



SunSport prediction

Southampton may not have been in the best of form, but Man United have failed to win in their last four games.

Mourinho’s side have lost their last two games against Arsenal and Tottenham to concede their fight for a top four spot this term.

Expect both teams to wind down their season with a less-than-intense draw. 1-1.
