The Real Reason Man Utd vs Southampton Won’t Be Broadcast Live

March 12, 2023

Manchester United host Southampton at Old Trafford this weekend in Premier League play. United will be trying to rebound back and rebuild some confidence after a crushing 7-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend.

Man Utd vs Southampton, however, will not be broadcast live on British television.

This is because neither Sky Sports nor BT Sport has chosen to use their live rights to air the game. Instead, Sky Sports will air the Fulham vs. Arsenal London derby at Craven Cottage, which begins at the same time as United’s game, while BT Sport has decided not to air any games during this time period.

Who Is Winning This Match?

Fans of both clubs who were hoping to watch the game live on television are disappointed by this. Due to United’s involvement in the Europa League round of 16, the game was rescheduled to take place on Sunday at 3 pm GMT instead of Saturday. Despite this change, live TV coverage of the game was not chosen.

The humiliating 7-0 loss to Liverpool in United’s last Premier League game effectively put an end to their tenuous chances of winning the league championship.

They recovered from this setback, though, by defeating Real Betis 4-1 on Thursday in the Europa League. Erik ten Hag will be hopeful that his team can maintain this momentum into their matchup with Southampton on Sunday.

The Saints recently defeated Leicester City 1-0, therefore they too have recently had success. Yet, given their current position at the bottom of the Premier League standings, they must win this game in order to escape the danger of being relegated.

In their last Premier League match-up, United defeated Southampton 1-0 in August on the strength of a second-half goal from captain Bruno Fernandes.
