Man Utd predicted XI for Southampton clash as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set to break record


Manchester United face Southampton tonight in the Premier League at Old Trafford and can go third with a win.

The Red Devils can leapfrog Chelsea and Leicester to land a firm position in the top four.

And all the signs are pointing towards a good night for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has kickstarted the club this year.


Since the restart of the Premier League, United have failed to lose while also combining for some brilliant attacking play.

Their last three displays have all ended with margins of three goals, with the likes of Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes in ferocious form.

It has taken United to 17 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

But they face another team who have undergone their own renaissance with the Saints on a three-match unbeaten streak.


That includes a brilliant win over Manchester City as Southampton allayed any fears of relegation.

Ralph Hassenhuttl deserves huge credit for turning the club’s fortunes around when at a stage his job looked under threat following a 9-0 thrashing from Leicester.

But the Red Devils have their eyes set on landing a spot in the top four and have looked hellbent on that mission all year.

Since Project Restart, Solskjaer has had a very clear image of his side and stands on the brink of a remarkable stat.

It will be the fifth time in a row if he lines up with the same XI that he went with against Aston Villa.

That has not happened since 1993 while Solskjaer has hinted that will be his exact plan tonight.

He said: “There’s so many things you have to consider when you manage a team. We’ve got players here chomping at the bit, but also those that are in the rhythm.”

One position under threat is at centre-back where Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand both said they need to strengthen.

Victor Lindelof is expected to start but he will hope to boost his form to convince his manager no replacement is needed.

As for the rest of the team, it picks itself after their brilliant form that includes a blossoming partnership between Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

United predicted XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Pogba; Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood; Martial.
