Premier League: Southampton vs. Manchester United [Predictions, Live Stream]
The Premier League continues with the sixth week of the 38-week season. Here is everything you need to know about Southampton versus Manchester United.
Southampton takes on Manchester United at St. Mary's Stadium in Southampton on Saturday as the Premier League enters Matchday 6 of the 38-week season.
Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. ET on Sept. 23. Although the matchday is being broadcast by multiple providers for those who call the game football, soccer fans in the U.S. will need to subscribe to the Premier League Pass on NBC Sports Gold in order to watch the match live. The Premier League Pass costs $50.
About 250 Premier League games this season will be televised on NBC, NBC SN and CNBC or available for streaming on NBC Sports Live. Another 130 games will be available exclusively on NBC Sports Gold.
Things could be returning to normalcy for England’s most successful club.
After four disappointing, uncharacteristic seasons of finishes in seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth, Manchester United is back atop the Premier League.
However, their noisy, blue neighbors are right there with them with 13 points and a plus-14 goal differential.
New signing Romelu Lukaku is tied with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero for the league lead with five goals while Anthony Martial has chipped in three.
United hasn’t lost a game since Aug. 8, which was a 2-1 Super Cup defeat to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Southampton has had a rather inconsistent start to the campaign with eight points in five matches. Wins against Crystal Palace and West Ham have been combatted with a loss to Watford and draws to Huddersfield and Swansea.
