Manchester United are away at Southampton in Premier League action in the last fixture before the first international break of the season. United started the season like a house on fire, beating Chelsea convincingly at home, before dropping points in a draw and loss after that. The Reds have been wasteful at times, and have managed to waste two penalties in as many matches. Southampton are struggling so far in this young season, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope that Saturday’s opponents give his team a chance to find form again.
United will have to beat the Saints without lead striker Anthony Martial, who misses the game with (a hopefully minor) injury. Left-back Luke Shaw also misses out, and is likely to be on the sidelines for a few weeks. Enter club captain Ashley Young, who is sure to start in Shaw’s place. Tahith Chong and James Garner have traveled with the squad, and the former is likely to have a place on the bench at least given Martial’s injury.
