Manchester United comes into this game sitting in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 49 points. In the last game against Real Betis, Manchester United scored four goals and that was enough to win by three goals. Marcus Rashford opened up the scoring in the sixth minute and they never looked back. Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are both dealing with long term injuries and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. Marcel Sabitzer is dealing with a shorter term injury, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game.

On the other side of this matchup is Southampton who sits in 19th place in the standings having picked up 21 points. Southampton’s last game came against Leicester City and they were able to secure the 1-0 victory. Carlos Alcaraz scored in the 35th minute and they didn’t allow Leicester City to have any shots on goal. Alcaraz was hurt celebrating that goal, but it’s expected that he’s going to be able to go in this game. Valentino Livramento and Juan Larios both are still dealing with longer term injuries and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game.
