Ninth place Southampton host Manchester United at the St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday in what could be a tough test for Jose Mourinho’s men. United currently sit on top of the table along with Manchester City having registered 4 wins and a draw while Southampton have had a solid start to the season with 2 wins and 2 draws and a solitary defeat.
Manchester United beat Everton 4-0 last Sunday with Romelu Lukaku, Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial getting on the scoresheet. Southampton came away with a 1-0 win against Palace with Steven Davis grabbing the winner.
