Southampton will be delighted they did not have to play a game in midweek and will feel refreshed when Manchester United come to town but winning over the Red Devils will be easier said than done.

The Saints have not be very impressive this season even though results have largely gone their way.

They needed a last minute goal to beat West Ham 3-2 while also scoring just a single goal against the terribly out-of-form Crystal Palace in their last game.

They have not scored a goal at home in 7 of their last 8 games and that will be music to the ears of the Manchester United defenders.

They have also lost 4 of their last 8 home games.

Manchester United are back scoring 4 goals again as they beat Burton Albion 4-1 in midweek.

The Red Devils seem to be the team with the most depth in the Premier League with the likes of Anthony Martial performing very well when they are given cameo roles.

Romelu Lukaku has also settled in well and will very likely continue his goal scoring run here.

They have won 6 and drawn 1 of their seven competitive games since the start of the new season, with 16 goals in 5 league games so far, it is hard to see Southampton surviving in this game.

Bookmakers make Manchester United odds-on favourites in this tie.
