Man Utd to dominate Southampton
Man Utd travel to St Mary’s to face a team who have scored just one home goal from free play in 725 mins, with 8 home scoring blanks in 9 matches. In contrast, United are averaging 3 goals a game. Romelu Lukaku alone has scored more goals than the whole Southampton side this season.
It’s been 14 years since the Saints beat Man Utd at home.
United fans most fond memory in recent times against Southampton was the League Cup win where the injured Zlatan Ibrahimović single handily won the game for the Red Devils.
Looking at United’s top scorer this season, Lukaku has played 8 times against the Saints scoring 5 goals and 3 assists. He could also become the first player to at St Mary’s for three different clubs.
It’s very difficult to see beyond a United victory today, which would be a great start to a difficult set of fixtures which sees the Red Devils play their next 6 of 7 games away from Old Trafford.
Prediction: Southampton 0 – 3 Man Utd
Predicted Team: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Blind, Matic, Fellaini, Mkyitaryan, Mata, Martial, Lukaku
