This game is between a team scoring goals for fun and only conceding in just one game this season while Southampton are finding it hard to score goals but they are also tight at the back.
They have adopted a pragmatic style this season after scoring in the sixth minute against Crystal Palace they ensured it stayed like that tI’ll the end of the game .Man United will need to find a means to break them down cause they can be compact throughout the duration of the game.
LUKAKU VS WESLEY HOEDT
Hoedt looks settled in the premier league already. He’s proven he can get his hands dirty and contest favourably in physical duels.
He will need those attributes against Lukaku who will take the fight to him. He will need to stick to Lukaku cause Lukaku needs only a second to create an opening for himself.
ROMEU VS MATIC
Both teams mildfield anchor will have important parts to play in this game.
Matic will keep United ticking with his passing while Romeu will be closing down in mildfield trying to stop United’s dominance i n the middle of the park.
WHERE THE GAME WILL BE WON OR LOST
This is crucial for Manchester united , the middle will be jampacked so they have to seek outlets from the wings.
Rashford and co will need to be effective when they have the ball.
This is where Southampton will look to win the game. With Lemina and Romeu , they will work to break down play in the middle and transit quickly from defence to attack.
I know its not easy betting against Manchester United winning big every week. I think they will get a narrow win.
