Southampton vs Manchester United: Where the game will be won and lost

Southampton vs Manchester United: Where the game will be won and lost”

Martial sustained a thigh complaint in the loss to Crystal Palace, while Shaw pulled up with a hamstring issue that is likely to keep him out for a further four weeks.

The Red Devils have drawn three of their last five games in the Premier League to suggest Southampton are something of a bogey team for Manchester United.

Solskjaer will now have to regroup his troops in a mission to cart away all the three points at St. Mary's.

Following Anthony Martial's injury, along with Alexis Sanchez following Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer only has a select few options in attack. In his place, Ashley Young is expected to feature on the left-hand side of the defence. The rest of the back four picks itself, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka being the right-back, while Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof will form the central defensive partnership once again.

Speaking of the football, Southampton play it very well and United have a tough task today.

The midfield should remain as it from recent matches with Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba continuing to get the nod over the experienced Nemanja Matic and Fred, who are now out-of-favour under head coach Solskjaer.

With Martial a doubt for the trip to the south coast, highly-rated youngster Mason Greenwood could be handed his first start as Marcus Rashford and Daniel James provide support on either flank.

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Manchester United to ease to a 2-0 victory over Southampton at St Mary's in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

United will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways against the Saints after suffering a 2-1 shock defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.
