Southampton

Last updated: Sat 31 August 2019 06:18
In Brief

Yet to earn points. Narrow League Cup win achieved in midweek. Lemina set to leave. Redmond and Djenepo sidelined. Bertrand and Obafemi doubtful.

Looking Back

Saints put up good fight vs. Liverpool last weekend, but this not enough for first points with game lost 1:2.

On Tuesday Obafemi’s early goal enough for 1:0 away win vs. Fulham in League Cup, with mainly reserves used in that match.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hasenhuttl unfortunate to see both Redmond and Obafemi limping off pitch in midweek and they now will need quick assessments. Former ruled out for 3 weeks, while Obafemi 'unlikely' to be involved. Bertrand also doubtful as he was absent both last weekend and vs. Fulham.

Ings should start up front, with Boufal the obvious choice if Redmond can’t play.

Djenepo set to miss with too.

Points of Interest

Like to force the issue in attack, with 19% of shot attempts coming from inside the 6-yard-box. This highest percentage in entire Premier League at the minute.

Manchester United

In Brief

Humiliating home defeat suffered vs. Palace. Bailly, Dalot and Fosu-Mensah long-term absentees. Shaw and Martial ruled out after last game. Rojo, Darmian and Smalling set to leave. Sanchez already loaned out.

Looking Back

United stunned in 1:2 home defeat vs. Crystal Palace. This was first home defeat vs. Eagles in Premier League era!

Pogba playing as holding midfielder in first 3 rounds and United’s best midfielder ineffective in attack when sitting so deep.

Absence of typical centre forward exposed in ‘shots from inside the 6-yard box’ stat. Only 7% of United’s shots so far coming from that zone, which is fifth lowest in entire league!

Looking Ahead

Coach Solskjaer without injured in last game Shaw for this one, with veteran Young the obvious replacement. Martial also picked up knock vs. Palace and set to miss. This could mean first start of season for Greenwood.

Other changes possible. Likes of Matic, Mata and Pereira could be considered for starts.

Rojo, Darmian, Smalling and Sanchez in Italy to finalise moves, while Bailly, Dalot and Fosu-Mensah remain sidelined.

Points of Interest

Awarded penalty in every round so far, but converted only 1 of 3.
