Manchester United clinched a convincing 3-1 victory against AFC Bournemouth in their first premier league away fixture and the Red Devils are now set to take Southampton in their home at Old Trafford on 19th August 2016.
On the other hand, Southampton failed to gain a victory in their first premier league home game at St. Mary’s Stadium and settled for a 1-1 draw against the visitors Watford. Friday would be a decider when Manchester United will take on the Saints in their home with an essence of Passionate Manchester United supporters all around cheering for them.
Mourinho would strongly rely on their quality strikers Wayne Rooney and Ibrahimovic Upfront. The Midfield is backed by the likes of Mata who provides key passes and Fellaini who often play deep and usually play the defensive role.
Anthony Martial is the most threatening player in the Manchester united midfield who can receive overlap passes in quick time and convert them to assist, He also provided 2 sharp assists in their opening game victory.
Valencia, Bailly, Blind, and Shaw are the Defensive leaders for United and are playing the role exceptionally well. Pogba probably to start the game for Manchester United
Nathan Redmond, the Ex-Norwich city midfielder has Great Pace and ability to score goals in no time also scored his Debut goal for the saints against Watford and will surely be a concern for Manchester United.
Steven Davis and Dusan Tadic holds a great Midfield gameplay along with Redmond providing them pace and vision. Soares, Yoshida and van Dijk shares equal defensive responsibilities and would be tested by the Manchester united side.
Fraser Forster needs to show star qualities with the gloves in this game

Manchester United vs Southampton Predictions
After Paul Pogba’s arrival in the club, Manchester United seem a lot more strong unit with lots of substitute options for Mourinho. Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney are the usual clinical finisher for them and often follow the midfield role at times.
The saints will be threatening side as well and they have underrated striker Shane Long who can probably score at Old Trafford. Also with the presence of Redmond and a Tadic in the midfield
My predictions for this game would be a 3-2 Manchester United Victory over saints.
Martial, Ibrahimovic, and Mata to score for Red Devils where else Long and Tadic to provide 2 goals for the saints. Likely to be a close encounter
