Manchester United will be hoping to return to their winning ways when they play against Southampton on Tuesday night.

After an impressive start of the year, last week the Red Devils faced a loss and a draw against Sheffield United and Arsenal respectively. They are currently sitting in 2nd place in the league table, three points behind the leaders, Manchester City.

Ahead of the clash, Michael Owen has given his prediction. Pundit has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to secure a 2 – 1 win over the Saints.

“Two weeks is a long time in football, just ask Ole Gunnar Solkjaer. One point from their last six is not what the United manager would have targeted following his sides excellent FA Cup win against Liverpool,” he said.

“Visitors, Southampton, arrive here after a couple of underwhelming results of their own. Back-to-back defeats in the league mean the Saints have lost a bit of ground in the race for Europe.

“Although he’s had them playing some excellent stuff this season, Ralph Hasenhüttl hasn’t got the biggest of squads and his players have certainly more miles on the clock than many.

“With that in mind, I think United’s strength in depth should be enough to see them secure the points.”
