Manchester United vs Southampton (13/03/2023 1:00 am)
In this match we have Manchester United hosting Southampton at the theatre of dreams Old Trafford after Manchester United lost 7-0 to rivals Liverpool away at anfield will Manchester United bounce back from that with a statement win or will they crumble to the pressure and lose again. Well I believe that Manchester United will beat Southampton but only just.
Manchester United’s team form
Manchester United’s last seven games are as follows five wins, one draw and one loss the wins are as follows: a four to one win against Real Betis which was a statement win for them, three one win against West Ham, two nil win against Newcastle United in the cup final, two one win against Barcelona and a three nil win against leicester City. The one only lose is to Liverpool which was a seven nil drumming by Liverpool and their only draw comes to Barcelona in the first leg of the Europa League this game against Southampton is important for the team to get back on track and back to winning ways in league if they want to be challenging for the title
Southampton‘s team form
Southampton on the other have had a shocking run in their last seven having lost five and only winning two their wins are as follows: one nil win against Chelsea who also are having a bad season and a one nil win against Leicester and they are also having a bad run of form as well. The losses are as follows: two one loss to league two side Grimsby town which was a big upset,
One nil loss to Leeds United, two one loss to wolves, three nil loss to Brentford and a two nil loss to Newcastle. With this form Southampton currently sit last in the table and have sacked their manager twice with a third one coming in this season this makes Southampton have the most managers in one season.
Manchester United’s Player Injuries
Manchester United has four injuries these injuries are as follows: Anthony Martial he suffered a hip injury back in January this year and will return in a few days, Christian Eriksen has suffered a ankle injury back in January this year and will return late April this year as well, Donny Van de Berk suffered a knee injury and need surgery on it so that puts him out for the whole season and last Marcel Sabitzer he suffered a knock this month and is doubtful to return these players are very important players but they have been doing alright with the players they have at their disposal right now.

These are all the injured players for Southampton
The player that is in red hot form for Manchester United is Marcus Rashford as he has scored fourteen goals this season in the premier league he has an expected goal rating of 10.42 which is the highest in the squad so far he has been impressive all season and he looks to keep on adding to his tally as well this season
So far no players have been impressive for Southampton as they are dead last but they hope to bounce back and try to stay in the premier league but one player that has been consistent this season is James Ward-Prowse he is third in most free kick goals scored and he continues to add to that tally
