Manchester United will entertain Southampton at Old Trafford this Sunday as both sides look to go all out in search of the win. The Red Devils managed to secure a convincing 4-1 win over Real Betis recently. Similarly, the Saints earned a narrow 1-0 win over Leicester City earlier this month.
Manchester United Vs Southampton: Talking Tactics
Erik ten Hag will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to instruct his men to dominate the ball and orchestrate enough inviting chances in the final third.
Rubén Sellés will set his players up in a 4-2-3-1 formation as well and could ask them to keep things solid at the back and try to catch the opposition off-guard on the counter.
Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen remain sidelined for Man United with long-term injuries. Anthony Martial is unlikely to be ready in time for this game despite returning to first-team training after recovering from a hip problem.
Manchester United Predicted XI
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Fred; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst
Valentino Livramento and Juan Larios will both miss this game for Southampton because of injuries. Otherwise, Ruben Selles has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this weekend.
Southampton Predicted XI
Bazunu; Maitland-Niles, Bella-Kotchap, Bednarek, Walker-Peters; Ward-Prowse, Lavia; Walcott, Alcaraz, Sulemana; Adams
Both Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes will be ten Hag’s main weapons up top. They need to have a good game if Man United want to secure a convincing win at home this weekend.
Both Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez need to be at their best on the defensive end of the pitch after they allowed seven goals against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.
James Ward-Prowse has to find a way to move the ball well at the centre of the park if the Saints are to create some decent chances on the counter. The defensive performance of Jan Bednarek and Armel Bella-Kotchap could go a long way in determining the fate of this Premier League contest.
