Solskjaer gives Man United squad update ahead of Southampton

Manchester United vs Southampton

Man United host Southampton on Saturday as they look to continue their unbeaten run.

After drawing 0-0 with Liverpool this past weekend and beating Crystal Palace in midweek, United are 11 games unbeaten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the league.

They have won nine of those game, drawing the remaining two.

Despite the impressive run of form, United slipped out of the top four over the weekend.

Man United are, however, just one point behind 4th place Arsenal who take on Tottenham this game week.

Southampton, on the other hand, have won just one of their last five league games and that win came against struggling Fulham.

The Saints are also just two points above the relegation zone.

Man United squad update

Heading into the weekend’s games, United have many injury problems.

Against Palace in midweek, Manchester United were without the likes of Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata.

Unfortunately for United fans, Solskjaer has confirmed they will be in a similar situation vs Palace.

“We have got the last session today, but we are not going to risk anyone if they are not 100 per cent. The squad will be looking similar, still.

“Maybe one-third of it will be Academy kids – maybe even more. So that is a good point to take out of it.

“It’s the last session today but we’re not going to take any risks.”
