Man Utd vs Southampton: The Match between Man Utd and Southampton is taking place on February 12 at 6:15 PM Nepali time.
Manchester United welcomes Southampton to Old Trafford in a Premier League lunchtime encounter on Saturday. The two sides had contrasting fortunes in midweek.
Burnley held the Red Devils to a 1-1 draw in midweek, while Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 in a tense encounter. Man Utd vs Southampton
All eyes were on the looming titanic clash between Man United’s Harry Maguire and Burnley’s new talisman Wout Weghorst at Turf Moor, but it was the ex-Wolfsburg striker who physically and symbolically towered over his opposite number in a well-deserved point for the Clarets.
After Raphael Varane believed he had broken the deadlock only to have VAR reverse his effort, Paul Pogba slammed home the first goal, and Burnley answered immediately in the second session through Jay Rodriguez after Weghorst beat Maguire all ends up.
Man United’s run of poor results continues, with Ralf Rangnick unable to inspire a fast turnaround following their humiliating FA Cup exit, and the Red Devils currently sit fifth in the table following West Ham United’s victory against Watford.
As the competition for Champions League football heats up, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both breathing down the Red Devils’ necks, and while the draw with Burnley extended Man United’s Premier League unbeaten record to four matches, it was undoubtedly two points lost rather than one gained.
Rangnick’s team, on the other hand, has won four of their past five Premier League games at Old Trafford, but Southampton is no stranger to stealing points off Big Six teams on their home turf, as they demonstrated in midweek.
Allowing James Ward-Prowse all the time in the world to pick out his intended target can be deadly for the opposition, and Tottenham Hotspur was simply outplayed by the dead-ball specialist and his squad on Wednesday night in North London.
Jan Bednarek’s own goal and Armando Broja’s finish leveled the score at 1-1 in the first half – although the Saints should have arguably finished the game off by half-time – but Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams’ headers sunk the Lilywhites, who had a last-minute leveler from Steven Bergwijn ruled out for offside.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side currently has four wins in their past six matches across all competitions, putting them in tenth place in the league.
While the Saints’ impressive win at Tottenham’s home may cause some concern among the hosts at Old Trafford, they have now conceded at least two goals in each of their last eight away matches in all competitions, with their Premier League tally of 26 conceded on the road joint-worst in the division with Leeds United.
The Red Devils will not require a second invitation to expose such flaws as they did at Old Trafford last season – nine goals were plenty for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on that memorable occasion – and a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s earlier this season extended Southampton’s winless run against United to 12 games in all competitions.
