PREDICTED MAN UNITED XI FOR SOUTHAMPTON CLASH

English Premier League giants Manchester United will be looking to continue their red-hot form when they travel to the St Mary’s to take on Southampton in their second Premier League fixture of the season. The Red Devils will be buzzing after making a huge statement following their huge and impressive display on the opening day of the season when they thrashed Leeds United 5-1 at Old Trafford, thanks to a hat-trick from Bruno Fernandes and goals from Mason Greenwood and Fred. With the team currently in high spirits, they are the clear candidates to emerge as winners from the tie on Sunday afternoon.

Paul Pogba was another man on fire for OlĂ© Gunnar Solksjaer’s men on Saturday as the France international midfielder registered four assists in the match. His fine form for United in the game is expected to earn him a starting role on Sunday while Fernandes is also expected to not be left out of the team sheet. The defense will most likely be the same, with concerns about whether or not Varane is fit enough to start. There could, however, be a little shuffle in the attack. Daniel James played on the right side of the attack while Mason Greenwood was the striker upfront and Pogba playing on the left-wing.

Reports are currently making the rounds that Sancho and Martial could be starting the game, which means that James is definitely going to miss out, while the other victim could be either Fred or McTominay. Martial and Sancho were substitutes last Saturday but they could be starting the next game on Sunday.

Predicted Man United XI for Southampton match:

De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Pogba, Fernandes, Fred, Greenwood, Sancho, Martial

United are expected to seal victory with this lineup but there could be changes to the setup for the game on Sunday.
