Southampton vs Manchester United – Confirmed Lineups

Embedded image permalink

A clash between fourth and fifth placed teams and the winner will move into third place as the fight to secure top four intensifies. Thanks to Stoke’s impressive win over Arsenal, the winner of this game could open up a significant gap over the struggling Gunners.

For the travelling side, captain Wayne Rooney returns from his knee injury and Falcao finds himself on the bench. It is no surprise that LVG has gone for a strong lineup to face the Saints, who have always proved to be a tricky opponent. On the other hand, his Dutch compatriot Ronald Koeman has few injury concerns to ponder about as the likes of jack cork, Toby Alderweireld and Morgan Schneiderlin misses out.

Here are the confirmed lineups:

Southampton: Forster, Clyne, Fonte (c), Yoshida, Bertrand, Wanyama, S. Davis, Tadić, Mané, Long, Pellè.

Subs: K. Davis (GK), Gardos, Mayuka, Isgrove, Reed, Targett, Hesketh.

Manchester United: De Gea, McNair, Smalling, Rojo, Valencia, Carrick, Fellaini, Young, Mata, Rooney, van Persie

Subs: Lindegaard, Evans, Herrera, Fletcher, Januzaj, Wilson, Falcao

We are rooting for the away side to collect all three points. What do you think would be the result?
