Manchester United Team News

Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be without Anthony Martial but has backed teenage forward Mason Greenwood to play a bigger role after Alexis Sánchez’s departure. Manchester United suffered memorable defeats at the Dell but are unbeaten at St Mary’s since 2003.

Luke Shaw is suffering from a hamstring injury that will keep him out for up to five weeks. Ashley Young is expected to deputise.

  • Manchester United are undefeated in their last 11 away matches against Southampton in all competitions. 
  • Manchester United have failed to win their last 5 away matches in the PL
  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Southampton’s last 6 home games in the PL 

Recent Form 

Southampton begin the weekend in the relegation zone but victory would lift them above United. Southampton lost their first two games of the season, but have now won twice in the space of three days. 

Manchester United are winless in two since beating Chelsea 4-0 on the opening weekend of the season, and lost at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday. 

Betting Odds & Prediction

It is questionable whether Manchester United are taking steps in the right direction. However, after their failure against Crystal Palace, we expect Manchester United to bounce back.

Southampton are expected to find the back of the net once or twice but in the end the Red Devils should have enough firepower to get over the line.
