Manchester United would move up to third place in the Premier League table with a win at home to Southampton on Monday. Shock defeats for Chelsea and Leicester City over the weekend have given United a glorious opportunity to leapfrog both, and move a big step closer to cementing a spot in next season’s Champions League.
United shouldn’t be expecting a cakewalk, however, with Southampton having enjoyed some good form of late. They’ve won three of their five matches since the resumption of play last month, including a stunning defensive performance in a 1-0 win over Manchester City.
United will be without Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones through injury, though otherwise have a full-strength team available. The Saints aren’t quite as lucky: Sofiane Boufal, Jannik Vestergaard, Yan Valery and Moussa Djenepo are all currently on the treatment table.
