Manchester United – Southampton

Date: Saturday 19th October

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick Off: 15.00

The international break is finally over after what must’ve seemed a lot longer than two weeks to many United fans desperate to see their team resemble something remotely like the side Sir Alex Ferguson left behind. David Moyes will be keen to build on the Reds win over Sunderland but a tie against high-flying Southampton, might not be the walk in the park everyone assumes.

United have slight doubts over Rafael Da SilvaRio Ferdinand and Tom Cleverley who was no doubt gutted to not be involved in the brace of England wins during the break.


Southampton had a minor concern over Luke Shaw, a player who’s actually been tipped with a move to Old Trafford. Left-back Shaw missed the recent win over Swansea through illness but is expected to start against the Champions. Striker Pablo Osvaldo is also expected to have shaken off a recent knock and be fit to face United.
