2 teams of equal fortunes are going to battle it out on Saturday at the St. Mary's Stadium.
Southampton face Manchester united in a mouth watering clash between Giants and strugglers. Southampton come into the match full of confidence after their 2-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion. Florin Andone red card in the first half gave Southampton an easy way to win the match. They will face a wounded Manchester united team tomorrow.
Manchester united shocking loss at home to Crystal palace means they must come back with a positive result in this match. They have been dealt with a huge blow with Luke Shaw injury. This means that Ashley Young will come in for the Englishman.
Southampton had a poor start to the season losing both of their first 2 games before beating Brighton and Hove Albion in their third match. They now come back home where they have been solid of recent. They have only lost twice in their last 7 home league games. Both losses were against Liverpool.
The likes of Tottenham, Wolverhampton Wanderers have all lost at St. Mary's during this timeframe. I think this is a boost of confidence for them.
Hasenhuettl is currently sweating over the fitness of Nathan Redmond who may be out for the crucial game.
The red devils shocking loss against Crystal palace means this match is a must win for them. They have now won just a match in the league which is very poor for a Title contender.
Injury to Luke Shaw means Ashley Young will have to come in. Ashley Young has been a shadow of himself and we saw how Wilfred Zaha turned him inside out in their loss against Crystal Palace. The left back will be a weak link for Manchester united and mistakes there may lead to one or two goals.
They have not been solid upfront too as the likes of Martial and Rashford have been below par so far. Solskjaer definitely have a task on his hand on Saturday as he need a win to calm frayed nerves.
Southampton home record in the league and against Manchester united will be crucial if they hope to get anything out of this match.
Manchester united winnings in the last 5 games against Southampton has been a goal difference
Southampton last win against Manchester united was in 2016 when Wayne Rooney and Daley Blind were still playing with the club.
I think Manchester united will grind out a win. Redmond and Djenepo injury means Southampton are short of attackers that might hurt Manchester united.
