Head to Head Record
Their success at Selhurst Park set a new club record of eight consecutive away victories away, while in their most recent home match they managed to hold title-chasing Liverpool
Southampton have had contrasting fortunes to their opponents in recent times, though they dismissed Fulham in midweek to climb out of the relegation zone. Prior to that they had failed to win in four, with this poor run seeing them briefly slip into the bottom three.
Nevertheless, they are performing better than they did under previous manager Mark Hughes. Only one of their last five matches away from St Mary's has ended in defeat and the side will be hoping this trend continues this weekend.

United's growing confidence and their opponents' difficulties in front of goal should give see them record a routine win.
Prediction: Manchester United 3-0 Southampton
