Manchester United XI vs Southampton: Predicted lineup, injury latest and predicted lineup for game today
Back on track after making light work of Real Betis, the Dutchman is eager to put last week’s loss at Liverpool behind him.
Mired in a relegation battle, Saints have won two of their last three games in the Premier League including beating Chelsea away from home, making them no pushover for the third-placed Red Devils.
Therefore, Ten Hag is set to pick another strong side on Sunday afternoon – particularly with victory in their Europa League tie against Betis all but sealed.
Marcel Sabitzer is a doubt after sitting out the first-leg win over Betis due to an unspecified injury.
Anthony Martial will miss out however with the striker yet to return to full training following a hip issue. Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are also sidelined.
Should Ten Hag want to freshen his line-up up, Aaron Wan-Bissaka replaced Diogo Dalot off the bench on Thursday as their competitive fight for the right-back berth continued.
Jadon Sancho and Facundo Pellistri looked lively off the bench but goals for all four of United’s first-choice attackers should maintain their spots in the line-up, with Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw taken off early for a rest in a busy run of games.
Predicted Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Fred, Casemiro, Fernandes; Antony, Weghorst, Rashford.
