Checkout Man United Expected XI, Team News And Injury Updates Ahead Of Southampton Clash

Manchester United will play Southampton in an early Gameweek 4 Premier League kick-off at St Mary's on Saturday. 

The South Coast team is still ahead of United at this point in the league season after winning one, drawing one, and losing one. United under Erik ten Hag will aim for their second victory of the year.

After the defeats to Brentford and Brighton and Hove Albion this season, United's performance against Liverpool on Monday at Old Trafford was outstanding, earning United all three points and ending Liverpool's winning streak after three games.

Manchester United Team News And Injury Updates

Despite keeping a clean sheet for the majority of the game against Liverpool, David De Gea showed progress, and as Liverpool attempted a late comeback, he was defeated. 

This season, the Spanish goalie will have his work cut out for him, and greater outcomes are anticipated.

The United defense did well against Liverpool, and Ten Hag should go with the same back four against Southampton since they have proven to be effective as a unit. Although United has invested a lot of money in its defense, this does not necessarily translate to strength.

Given his performance against Liverpool, Diogo Dalot ought to preserve his spot. In the meantime, Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be a rotational choice.

Luke Shaw will be relegated to the bench for the time being as Tyrell Malacia had his greatest game for United.

Harry Maguire was benched in favor of Raphael Varane, and that was a wise move. Alongside Lisandro Martinez, who has yet to lose an aerial duel in the Premier League this season, he performed what needed to be done. This central defensive alliance might work well.

Eriksen has been doing well this year and has a lot of offensive potential. At the moment, United is still a work in progress, but they will eventually find their footing, which may have begun against Liverpool. Eriksen is a top-notch midfielder who is aware of expectations.

With five substitutions available later in the game, Fred might replace Casemiro to team up with his countryman, something he and Casemiro will both be anticipating given how well they play together for Brazil. This midfield has potential to be exciting.

Fernandes made every effort to resurrect the player who could score and set up countless goals, but it was simply not meant to be. He should kick off this match as well because he was a shining light in the last one. He performs significantly better on the field without Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite having a quiet preseason in terms of goals and assists, Marcus Rashford has received a lot of criticism this summer, and his work ethic has been outstanding.

Anthony Martial played him through against Liverpool, and he scored a fantastic goal as a result. He must begin in this fashion.

Martial has returned from the injury that prevented him from playing in this season's first two Premier League games, giving United limited choices in attack. 

He entered the game from the bench to set up Rashford's goal just eight minutes into the second half. It's excellent for Martial and United that he appears content and hungry.

The forward line of United needs to be strengthened this summer, especially if Ronaldo decides to quit the team, which appears likely. Rashford can start as the striker against Liverpool, but that did change. Martial can also play in this position.

PREDICTED XI: (4-2-3-1)

De gea; Malacia, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Eriksen, Mc Tominay; Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford; Martial.

Editors Predicted Result:

Southampton 1-3 Man United.
